White box servers are data center computer servers that are not associated with well-known brand names and are constructed using off-the-shelf components from multiple vendors rather than being manufactured and sold by a specific brand or manufacturer.
The primary form factor types in white box servers include rack and tower servers, blade servers, and density-optimized servers. Rack servers are designed to be mounted on a standard equipment rack, which is a metal frame holding multiple servers in a vertical arrangement. These servers find applications across various business types, including data centers and enterprise customers. The processors used in white box servers can be X86 servers or non-X86 servers, and they may run various operating systems such as Linux and others.

The white box server market size has grown rapidly in recent years. It will grow from $15.98 billion in 2023 to $18.94 billion in 2024 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.5%. The growth observed in the historic period can be attributed to various factors, including the influence of the Open Compute Project (OCP), increased buildouts of data centers, the commoditization of hardware, deployments of hyper-scale data centers, and the pursuit of vendor independence. These factors collectively contributed to the historical expansion of white box servers.
The white box server market size is expected to see rapid growth in the next few years. It will grow to $37.89 billion in 2028 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.9%. The anticipated growth in the forecast period for white box servers can be attributed to several factors, including an increasing focus on energy efficiency, a growing demand for high-performance computing, heightened emphasis on security and compliance, market liberalization and increased competition, and ongoing digital transformation initiatives. Notable trends expected during the forecast period include customization and open architecture, the use of GPU acceleration for AI workloads, the adoption of software-defined infrastructure, the transition to 5G networks, and heightened competition with traditional Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
The white box server market is poised for growth, driven by the increasing proliferation of data centers. These facilities provide shared access to applications and data through advanced network, computing, and storage infrastructure. White box servers, serving as operating systems and virtualization software, are integral to data center operations. A notable indication of this trend is reported by Savills Korea in August 2021, revealing that the total capacity of data centers reached 430 MW in terms of IT load by the end of 2020. Furthermore, the United States International Trade Commission noted in 2021 that there were over 2,600 data centers in the US and nearly 8,000 new data centers globally in the same year, underscoring the substantial growth in data center numbers fueling the white box server market.
The growth of the white box server market is further propelled by an upsurge in cyberattacks and fraud. As organizations face an increased frequency of cybersecurity threats, there is a growing inclination towards white-box servers to enhance security configurations. The use of white-box servers allows organizations to implement customized security measures tailored to their specific requirements, potentially improving resilience against cyber threats. A report by AAG in October 2023 highlighted a significant 125% increase in global cyberattacks, emphasizing the escalating threat landscape faced by individuals and organizations. Consequently, the surge in cyberattacks and frauds is a key driver fostering the growth of the White Box Server market.
A prominent trend in the white box server market is the emphasis on product innovation by companies seeking to maintain a competitive edge. To sustain their position in the market, companies operating in this sector are actively developing new and innovative products.
