    KunLun Mission Critical Server

    KunLun delivers the highest reliability among x86 mission critical servers. With cutting-edge RAS 2.0 technology and BMC management chip, the server offers an open x86 ecosystem with the reliability of UNIX servers. KunLun is ideal for core databases, service application consolidation, in-memory computing, High-Performance Computing (HPC) fat nodes, and more scenarios.

    It has been certified for operating SAP HANA of up to 16 TB for running S4H/SoH applications, and up to 8 TB for running BWoH applications. KunLun delivers industry-leading SAP B4H benchmark performance. KunLun supports K-Par (physical partitioning) and L-Par (logical portioning) to maximize resource utilization and simplify O&M. It is compatible with mainstream operating systems, virtualization software, and databases. Compared with UNIX servers, KunLun reduces TCO by more than 30%.
