To me this seems to be a general drawback of outsourcing the manufacturing and the know-how to an ODM. In long term, you rise a competitor.

All's I know is that memory DIMM failures for these big cloud servers is the #2 failure in the data center. Not only do they need simplier IC's but more reliable memory subsystems.

Funny because there was a recent article on Japanese DRAM industry, failing because they insisted on high-overhead manufacturing and testing for quality, and being undercut by competition which adopted shortcuts. I guess the chicken are coming home to roost.

HP and Dell have created their own Frankenstein monster, which now has the advantage of knowing more about making their products than the OEMs do (ref: Ricks comment about HP systems experts retiring with no one to take their place).

Yes indeed, good for Quanta, bad for Dell and HP, eh? None of this is surprising though, right? Now, how about Foxconn/Apple? I that the next article we'll be reading along these lines?
