This IDC Market Note examines the impact of the coronavirus, and related local production shutdowns in China, on the datacenter infrastructure hardware market.
"The coronavirus outbreak is a rapidly evolving situation and one that has significant human and economic impact," said Sebastian Lagana, research manager, Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies at IDC. "Understanding how any production shutdowns affect the supply chain, and how that in turn flows upstream into the ODM and OEM environments, will be a leading indicator of broader server and storage system market performance during early 2020."
