At today’s Interop Tokyo 2016 conference, Huawei KunLun 9032 mission critical server won the Gold Award for the “Best of Show Award” for Server & Storage, after several rounds of scrutinous review by industry authorities. An enabler of open ecosystems, Huawei KunLun 9032 is engineered with state-of-the-art reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) technologies and delivers groundbreaking 32-socket scale-up capabilities.
“We’re greatly honored to receive the Gold Award at Interop Tokyo 2016 for our KunLun 9032 mission critical server, and this is the second time Huawei is awarded by Interop. Huawei’s winner product this year is a high-end server positioned for mission critical services. The cutting-edge engineering and high reliability of KunLun is perfectly aligned with Japan’s unremitting pursuit of high quality,” said Qiu Long, president of the Huawei Server Product Line. “Huawei has been relentless in building servers that differentiate themselves by their high quality, reliability, and cutting-edge technologies, servers that are engineered by centering around customer requirements and tailored to the customers’ usage scenarios. Thanks to Huawei’s dogged determination of investing in R&D, with over 10% of Huawei’s annual revenue going to product researches and development, Huawei has been able to continuously innovate servers from the bottom-layer chips, overall architecture, engineering design and upper-layer applications, meeting the customers’ requirements for a computing infrastructure of today and tomorrow.”
As the world’s first 32-socket mission critical server, Huawei KunLun 9032 is a new-generation midrange computer built on an open platform that satisfies enterprises’ stringent requirements on performance and reliability for business-critical computing. KunLun offers a flexible, interoperable, and cost-effective mission critical platform that places enterprises at a better position to compete in the digital economy era. KunLun brings together cutting-edge Huawei server advances, including RAS 2.0 and processor interconnect technologies, delivering single-node reliability and computing power that far outstrip the incumbent standard open platform. KunLun employs a proactive fault management mechanism. As the industry’s first to support online replacement of core components such as CPUs and DIMMs, KunLun brings service continuity to a new level and ranks No. 1 in multiple performance benchmark tests, including SPEC CPU2006, SPEC JBB2015, and LinPack. Fully embracing the x86 mainstream open ecosystem, KunLun drives down the total cost of ownership (TCO) by more than 30% compared with traditional closed-architecture midrange computers, dramatically improving the economics of mission critical computing.
Huawei pursues the philosophy of making computing simple through continuous innovation and builds servers that help customers deploy simplified and efficient IT infrastructures. Huawei servers are supporting over 5,000 customers in more than 150 countries worldwide. Huawei mission critical servers are currently maintaining a global No. 1 shipment growth rate and are installed widely across various industries, including finance, government, large corporations, and carriers, inside and outside China.
