According to market research group Omdia, AMD has surged to a historically high server market share of 16%.

“In the server CPU market, AMD scored its best-ever quarter from a market share and sales perspective with demand from hyperscale cloud service providers, and Google in particular, being a big contributing factor to AMD’s strong performance,” according to the report.

Amid severe supply chain constraints and component sourcing problems, the industry shipped 3.4 million servers in the second quarter of 2021, approximately the same as 2020 Q2.  Of these, the largest vendor was really no vendor at all – “white box” vendors accounted for 26% of this number.

The report also noted that ARM-based “have been making great progress in penetrating the servers of the hyperscale cloud service providers. Although Graviton deployments at AWS somewhat slowed down in 2Q20, Oracle’s deployments of servers with Ampere’s CPU ramped.”
