Huawei and Oracle agreed to deepen technical cooperation based on the Huawei KunLun Mission Critical Server.

The companies have signed a memorandum proposing deep integration between the Huawei KunLun Mission Critical Server and the Oracle database.

KunLun supports a scale-up architecture and offers 32 Terabytes of memory. The integration, combining the Huawei product and Oracle expertise, will aim to improve enterprises’ service platforms for dealing with OLTP hybrid workloads.

KunLun uses Huawei’s reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) 2.0 technologies and is hardened with the Predictive Failure Analysis Engine (PFAE) and Oracle’s mature Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA).

“Huawei and Oracle complement each other well, and, more importantly, we work towards the same goals - to help enterprises be better positioned for digital transformation and to reduce the complexity of the process,” said Qiu Long, president of the Huawei IT server product line.

“Each as the best in its domain, we now work together to present solutions that will empower our customers to achieve bigger success with their businesses.”

The deepening partnership between Huawei and Oracle will enable better resource sharing between the two companies. The companies will target industries such as government, finance, communications, electric power, tobacco, transportation and medical care.
