ODMs continue to rise in server sales

[S]erver revenue last quarter, up 45.2 percent from a year earlier, IDC said. If the ODM category were a single vendor, it would be the third largest ahead of Dell.

Almost 80 percent of the ODM’s server revenue came from the U.S., primarily from sales to Google, Amazon, Facebook and Rackspace.

Overall, the server market declined 3.7 percent from a year earlier to US$12.1 billion.
