Speaking to Digitimes, Ashley Gorakhpurwalla, general manager of servers at Dell, said his company has narrowed the gap between it and arch rival Hewlett Packard.
Gorakhpurwalla claimed that Dell is now the number one server vendor in North America and in China.
Nor does Dell appear to view the original development manufacturers (ODMs) such as Quanta to be a threat to its own business.
Dell believes its server growth in the high performance computer (HPC) sector is boosting its revenues worldwide.
Open source vendors don’t bother Dell either, said Gorakhpurwalla.
