This IDC Perspective assesses trends in the white-box server landscape. The growing appetite for enterprise firms, large and small, to shift to a modular, do-it-yourself, software-defined infrastructure is creating opportunities for a well-defined class of "white box" infrastructure solutions: general-purpose compute, storage, and networking hardware platforms that are built with industry-standard off-the-shelf components (COTS) and delivered as unbranded equipment."White-box infrastructure represents an interesting space in between branded and custom hardware procurements, one that provides an opportunity for both traditional OEM suppliers and newer ODM suppliers to expand," said Ashish Nadkarni, group VP, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies at IDC.
