NEEDHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 10, 2021 — According to the International Data Corporation ( IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker, the worldwide server market grew 12.0% year over year to $20.9 billion during the first quarter of 2021 (1Q21). Worldwide server shipments grew 8.3% year over year to nearly 2.8 million units in 1Q21.
