Accelerated servers accounted for more than half of server sales in 1Q 2024

According to a recently published report by Dell’Oro Group, accelerated servers equipped with GPUs and custom accelerators accounted for more than half of all server sales in 1Q 2024. Not only are the hyperscalers leading the way in deploying accelerated servers for AI workloads, but enterprises are also increasing their adoption of accelerated servers as GPU supplies improve.

“Worldwide data center capex experienced the first double-digit growth in five quarters. The hyperscale Cloud service providers in US and China saw an aggregate growth rate exceeding 40 percent as AI-infrastructure investments maintained strong growth momentum,” said Baron Fung, Sr. Research Director at Dell’Oro Group. “Meanwhile, there is optimism for a modest improvement in the outlook for enterprise IT spending along with a recovery in general-purpose server market later this year as end users replace servers overdue for refresh to the latest CPU platforms from Intel and AMD,” explained Fung.

Additional highlights from the 1Q 2024 Data Center IT Capex Quarterly Report:

Server and storage system revenues are forecast for growth greater than 30 percent in 2024, while network and physical infrastructure revenues are expected to grow single digits.

White box server vendors gained 11 points of revenue share year-over-year compared to the OEMs as hyperscalers increased deployments of servers equipped with GPUs and custom accelerators.

The accelerated server market is forecast to increase by more than 80 percent in 2024.
