Dell warns of server memory shortage, price hikes

Dell is warning customers of a global shortage of server memory modules that will cause delays to delivery times as well as product price hikes.

The company has advised customers to expect the delays and price increases from next month.

These “extended delivery timeframes” would affect “a number of server platforms”, it said in customer communication sighted by iTnews.

“Please be aware that there will be a global shortage on memory modules of servers which will not only delay the delivery time to more than a month but also increase the price of the memory modules all over,” Dell has advised.

The company declined to comment to iTnews.

In its earnings call earlier this month Dell’s head of product and operations Jeff Clarke said the company was in “the longest protracted DRAM price increase that we’ve seen in the last 25 years”.
