BEIJING, Dec. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on the Gartner's latest Global Server Market Report publication, the shipments of Inspur servers in the first three quarters of 2016 experienced a 28% year-on-year increase, making Inspur the fastest growing server vendor in the world. Revenue of 18.2% account for the biggest share in the China market, making Inspur the leader in the China market for six out of the past nine quarters.
The data indicates that the global X86 server shipments for the first three quarters of 2016 is 8.1 million units, with a year-on-year increase of 0.5%. Revenues have reached 34.3 billion dollars, with a year-on-year increase of 2.8%. A global demand slump was caused by factors such as insufficient enterprise demand and a slowdown in demand growth from large scale data centers. Despite these circumstances, China remains the engine of the global market with Chinese X86 server shipments reaching 1.81 million units, with a year-on-year increase of 10%. The revenue reached 7.1 billion dollars, with a year-on-year increase of 16%.
The 2-socket server is the main shipment product of the market. Inspur's 2-socket X86 server shipments experienced a year-on-year increase of 24% -- becoming the main contributor to Inspur's market performance of the first three quarters. In China, Inspur won the State Grid Central Procurement bid for five consecutive years and has acquired large quantity procurements from China Mobile, China Telecom, and China Unicom -- the three leading telecommunication operators in China.
Internet operators have maintained their strong purchase demands. The high-density multi-node server mainly targets internet operators, and has accumulated over 150,000 units in sales for the first three quarters. Inspur's share in revenues within this market segment reached 34.4% -- first in the China market. The SR rack scale server is the main shipment product, and has accumulated procurement orders of over 100,000 nodes from leading internet operators like Alibaba, Baidu and China Mobile. The newly released SR4.5 also opened orders for bulk purchase and under Tencent's cloud storage application test. The SR4.5 rack scale server lowered the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) by 30% compared to the traditional server cluster methods.
In China's 8-socket X86 server market, Inspur holds a market share of 43.6%, becoming the leader of this market segment for 12 consecutive quarters. Inspur's TS860G3 8-socket server broke the world record for the SPEC (The Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation) test again this quarter, claiming the laureate for "Best Computing Performance". The 8-socket server is now used on a large scale by enterprise users owing to the data intelligence, transaction processing, and cloud computing integration solutions of HANA (The High-performance Analytic Application).
Based on the data from Gartner, Inspur is currently one of the top five server vendors in the world. Peter Peng, the Vice President of Inspur Group, expressed that Inspur has been accelerating the plan for its global strategy of establishing a globalized operating system. As for Inspur's fast-growing influence on the US and European markets, and the company's fruitful attempts to explore new key clients like cloud computing service providers, Peng stated that this business expansion will see Inspur progressing gradually to become a leading global cloud computing product and solution provider -- leaping from top five to top three in the world by 2020.
