Dell completely leaves Russia, getting rid of the staff

According to CNews, citing sources in the distribution market and in companies cooperating with the vendor, the American company Dell is leaving the Russian Federation, reducing its staff along the way. Earlier, at the end of February, Dell had already suspended the supply of servers to the Russian market and is now leaving completely. What does this mean for hosting? Most likely just a significant redistribution of market shares in favor of Russian and Chinese manufacturers.

According to information from sources, both the sales and marketing departments and technical specialists will be laid off. Dell will stop its work completely at the end of August.

How the market will change

At the time of 2021, Dell ranked first in Russia in terms of server supply market share — 21% (IDC statistics). Accordingly, companies that continue to operate in our market have a chance to add approximately such a piece to their pieces of the pie. In particular, the Russian company Yadro, which in 2021 ranked third on the market.

“Finally, the likelihood of new Chinese IT infrastructure vendors entering the Russian market is increasing: there are much more of them than we have so far, new brands will certainly try to occupy the vacated space,” says Vyacheslav Volodkovich, CEO of Aerodisk, a Russian manufacturer of data storage systems.

Background and arrested funds

It turns out that the clouds began to gather over Dell a few months ago, when in May the Moscow Arbitration Court arrested over 778 million rubles on the accounts of Dell LLC. The court made the decision as part of the consideration of the claim of the Talmer system integrator, which was related to the fact that Dell announced its withdrawal from Russia against the backdrop of sanctions after Talmer made an advance payment to it for the provision of technical support services for VMware in Russia.
