The server sets a new standard in mission critical computing by combining an innovative and open design with breakthrough Reliability, Availability, Serviceability (RAS 2.0) and CPU interconnection technologies.

Commenting on the launch, Zheng Yelai, President, Huawei IT Product Line, said: “Many enterprises are stifled by traditional closed systems that are complex and rigid. Instead of giving them a competitive advantage, their systems are hindering business innovation and growth. Huawei is addressing this through KunLun, the world’s first 32-socket x86 mission critical server. Being a new-generation mission critical server, KunLun is based on an open platform which meets the stringent performance and reliability requirements of enterprises' mission critical computing. In our quest to become a leader in mission critical computing, we believe KunLun marks the beginning of a new mission critical server era based on open standards that helps enterprises improve efficiency and agility while reducing costs”.

Peter Gleissner, Vice President, Sales and Marketing Group & Director, European Union Region, Intel, Johannes Woehler, Vice President of HANA Platform & Databases, SAP, and Ralf Flaxa, President of Engineering of SUSE attended the KunLun's launch conference.

Peter Gleissner, Intel, said, "Intel is widely used all around the globe, especially in the financial industry and government sector. Huawei's 32-socket KunLun is a leading mission critical server based on Intel processors."

Johannes Woehler, SAP, said: “Through close collaboration, SAP and Huawei have delivered industry-leading innovations to meet the needs of our global customers. By continuing to provide industry solutions based on innovative infrastructure, we will help our customers leverage cloud and big data technologies to realize agile business and rapid innovation to create a competitive edge in the digital economy.”
