Huawei fastest growing server vendor in the world

13 May 2019

Gartner’s research shows that Huawei servers ranked third by revenue globally in Q4 2018, with a year-on-year (YoY) growth rate of 45.9%, the highest growth rate for servers in the world.

According to the release, the global server revenue was US$21.862 billion in Q4 2018, a YoY increase of 17.8%. 

A total of 3,472,886 servers were shipped globally, increased by 8.5% YoY. In all of 2018, worldwide server shipments grew 13.1% and server revenue increased 30.1% compared with full-year 2017.

As industries push deeper into the digital transformation journey, the intelligent transformation is yet to unfold its full potential. 

It is foreseeable that the IT infrastructure scale of enterprises will maintain huge momentum in the next few years. 

As this trend continuously gains traction, the requirements for IT infrastructure are ever on the rise. 

Traditional data centres face operating expenditure (OPEX) stress from power consumption, O&M manpower and costs, and equipment footprint. 

This is when intelligent transformation comes into play, to effectively mitigate these issues. Meanwhile, AI-facing computing demands are growing explosively.

Huawei says it has been closely observing this trend and has deep insight into the challenges confronting the intelligent transformation of data centres. 

Huawei Intelligent Computing acts upon this insight by deploying its R&D initiatives on three fronts: intelligent acceleration engine, intelligent management engine, and innovative data centre solution. 

Huawei has upgraded its x86-based traditional servers to intelligent servers. 

In addition, Huawei provides tiered solutions covering the single-node, large-scale, and ultra-large-scale deployment scenarios, addressing the intelligent transformation requirements of data centres from multiple dimensions.

Huawei has also launched the Ascend 310/910 AI chipsets and the Kunpeng 920 ARM-based CPU in October 2018 and January 2019 respectively. 

These core chipsets boost Huawei's intelligent computing offerings: the Atlas AI computing platform and TaiShan series servers. The broadened product portfolio covers the Cloud-Edge-Device scenarios.
