Taiwan-based ODMs have been competing for datacenter server orders for 2019, according to Digitimes. Wiwynn will have a chance of landing orders from Amazon in the second half of the year, joining the client's existing suppliers including Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) and Quanta Computer, while several small suppliers including Gigabyte Technology, AIC, Asustek Computer and Mitac Computing Technology are vying for orders originally given to US-based Supermicro, whose servers were said to have carried spy chips in a report last year.
Wiwynn may be able to join the supply chain of Amazon as one of the US-based Internet service provider's server partners had some quality issues with its products, giving Wiwynn an opportunity to fill its place. Although Wiwynn's order will be limited initially, the entry to the supply chain will allow the company to obtain more orders from Amazon.
