China Quarterly City-Level Server Tracker

Available Product Resources Factsheet

Along with the x86 server saturation in the first tier of cities, vendors focus more on other layers of cities because of higher growth rate potential. Many metropolitan cities are taking measures to secure the local city GDP growth, which will result in more investment both directly and indirectly from the local government, hence creating opportunities for x86 server spending. Within PRC, the gap in terms of economy, industry structure, development planning, and so forth is huge among various cities, even for cities within the same province. Therefore, it is critical for vendors to have a better understanding on PRC x86 spending by city to better support their geographic expansion planning more effectively. IDC's China Quarterly City-Level Server Tracker® is designed to clarify each city's x86 server spending status and competitive landscape so that the x86 vendors can compete and succeed in this marketplace.
