Dell EMC is closing the gap on Hewlett Packard Enterprise as EMEA’s top server vendor.
Beancounters at IDC have added up some numbers and divided by their collective shoe size and claimed that Dell EMC saw its server market share in EMEA increase just over three percentage points to 22.4 percent in Q2. HPE’s numbers were disappointing, and it declined over three per cent to 28.4 percent.
IDC senior research analyst Kamil Gregor said total spend for the quarter was up 28.9 percent year on year to $4.1 billion with HPE making up over a quarter of these sales. The number of shipments, however, declined 3.7 percent to 515,000 units shipped.
Some of the largest markets in Europe experienced shipment declines, with Germany seeing a drop of 14 percent and the UK a decline of 8.7 percent. These two regions, however, experienced revenue growth of 23.2 percent and 29.9 percent respectively as the average order of shipments rose.
