As the market enters the second half of the year, the replacement demand associated with the migration to the latest server processor platforms has yet to pick up significantly. Moreover, the demand from customers in China’s data center market is still rather uncertain. On the other hand, shipments from ODM direct businesses in the US to North America’s data center market is expected to maintain robust growth during the year’s second half. The growth from this end will compensate for the other factors that negatively affect the overall demand. Consequently, this year’s global server shipments will be roughly on par with the level of the previous year.StorageMon, 09 Sep 2019 05:27:00 +00003294 at http://www.trendforce.com
