Ultra-Reliable, Certified Server Memory from OSI Hardware Delivers Big Value as Market Demand Jumps and Prices Climb
Strong Growth in the Server Sector is Driving Up DRAM Prices, Making the Case Even Stronger for OSI Hardware’s Competitively Priced Memory Modules
Data is everywhere and the rate at which it is being created is growing faster than ever. Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles, and the global proliferation of cloud infrastructure platforms and hyper-scale datacenters are all giving a boost to server sales and the DRAM (Dynamic Random-Access Memory) memory which enables them to store and move data. Research firm IDC says worldwide server revenues soared 19.9% year over year to $17 billion in the third-quarter of 2017, with overall shipments up 11.1% to 2.67 million units.
As demand continues to outstrip supply, industry analysts such as Gartner predict prices will rise further, straining the capacity of the world’s top three server DRAM suppliers: Samsung, SK Hynix, and Micron. Despite anticipated production increases from within the white-hot sector, manufacturers and supply chain vendors eagerly anticipate higher average selling prices (ASPs) for the foreseeable future.
For OEMs and VARs, its welcome news that 2018 will see steady sales volume and upward pressure on revenues. For buyers, it adds to the never-ending challenge of improving infrastructure performance without breaking the budget.
However, there are steps executives and purchasing managers can take to sidestep these market forces in the newly energized server memory sector. As a long-time supplier of top-tier memory to thousands of enterprise customers, OSI Hardware has established an enviable track record of delivering ultra-reliable, quality tested DIMM (dual in-line memory module) products with a near-zero escape factor. The winning combination of world-class excellence, aggressive price points, and industry-leading fulfillment standards, has resulted in intense loyalty among buyers of the OSI-branded DDR, DDR2, DDR3 and DDR4 DIMM memory modules.
“We based our entry into memory entirely on meeting our objective of sourcing product that we could feel comfortable would compete on every level, across the entire sector,” says Christian Saunders, president and co-founder of OSI Global IT. “We’re not just shipping memory with among the highest quality standard in the industry, we’re providing the exact RAM installed by many of the leading server manufacturers, and at a price point 70% to 90% below OEM list.”
