Downturn Ahead For Server Market
0Overall Score

Enterprise server shipments are likely to slow significantly in coming months, according to a report by financial services outfit Morgan Stanley’s technology expert Katy Huberty.She blames increasing virtualisation and the cloud for

the server downturn, which comes after several years of 3-5 percent growth.

According to Huberty, growth for external storage systems dissipated last year

as flash-based products and the cloud ate into business, a time when enterprise

server shipments were still growing at 7pc year over year.
