It usually takes time for suppliers and clients to form steady partnerships, and it is also not unusual for the latter to diversify their supplies. Now the latest news from the server sector is that AWS reportedly has added Wiwynn and Jabil as its suppliers to accelerate its datacenter deployments. Wiwynn has declined to comment on specific clients, but expressed optimism about datacenter server demand in 2020. And in terms of diversifying supplies, it would not be too much of a surprise if Apple looks for an additional source of OLED panels for its iPhones.
AWS grows supplier base: Amazon Web Services (AWS) has expanded its supplier base to include Wiwynn and Jabil with Wiwynn expected to begin supplying servers at the end of 2019, according to industry sources.
Wiwynn positive about datacenter server demand in 2020: Datacenter server demand will be driven by the availability of Intel’s Whitley server platform in 2020, according Wiwynn, a datacenter server making subsidiary of Wistron.
BOE tipped as strong contender for Apple OLED panel orders: Taiwan’s supply chain makers in the flat panel industry are likely to benefit from the simmering trade row between Japan and Korea which could upend Samsung Display’s monopoly role for the supply of OLED panels to Apple and make BOE Technology a strong contender for the orders from the iPhone vendor, according to industry sources.―Digitimes
