Going into 2020 the top 3 reliable servers are as follows:


IBM's z Systems Enterprise has again earned the "best in class" for several factors including reliability, accessibility, and security among all server platforms.

IBM also took the title of the lowest calculated minutes of downtime per year of their server with just under a minute at 0.96 minutes per year.

What Do Users Look for In Their Server's Hardware?

When customers are rating server hardware, they look for several things including the age of the technology as they state that technology that is more than 3 1/2 years old hurts their business and slows their day-to-day operations drastically. IBM, Cisco, and Lenovo consistently produce newer and more efficient technologies to ensure that their customers are getting the best server technology.

Another key feature of all 3 of these top server companies on the market in 2020 is their quality technical support staff that helps customers when they have issues with their equipment. These companies help customers resolve issues quickly and minimize the financial losses to their company when they have problems with their hardware.

These companies all also have reliable servers that rarely go down and cause their customers to have financial losses from technological fails. These companies keep their servers working at top speed and ensure that they are working no matter what time of day their clients need to access their information. Equally important is that these companies provide technology that works rapidly without sacrificing protection, which ensures that the information does not fall into the hands of those who should not have it.


All of these positive character traits make all 3 of these companies the top servers available on the market in 2020. They protect their customer's information, keep their systems running smoothly at all times, and are ready to help customers when they have issues with their hardware. So, if you are in the market for a new server in 2020, IBM, Cisco, and Lenovo remain your go-to companies for the best product for the price.
