2019 Servers Leaders: White Box Servers
Unbranded or branded, e.g. HP, servers which can be purchased directly from the original equipment manufacturer (ODM), typically without the service and support available with traditional enterprise servers.
For the second year in a row, Supermicro swept IT pro votes as they dominated in the White Box Servers category—holding onto the titles for Market, Price, Performance, Reliability, Innovation, and Service and Support. Little-known, but high-volume suppliers to the big cloud vendors, Inventec and Quanta, tied for the second as Market leader.
