Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) server vendor revenues are growing despite a decline in the number of servers shipped according to IDC. Server vendor revenue increased 29% although shipments decreased by 3.7%. Second quarter EMEA server revenues are up 18.7% from a euro standpoint to EUR3.4 billion. The first shipments of AMD EPYC processors have arrived in Western Europe and France is actively building AWS and Microsoft datacenters around Paris and Marseille.

"The second quarter of 2018 saw the first shipments of EPYC processors in Western Europe. Expectations are that these processors will align more closely to Moore's Law, a factor that will only drive faster adoption in the future," said Eckhardt Fischer, senior research analyst, IDC Western Europe.
