The networking landscape is changing. Our new HPE ASE – Data Center Network Architect V1  & HPE ASE - Data Center Network Integrator V1 certifications allow you to stay up-to-date on these changes, help you optimize your investments, and capitalize on the HPE Arista partnership.


Benefits of upgrading

  • Provides immediate HPE ASE – Data Center Network Architect V1 certification,  if you hold and submit a current Arista Certified Engineer – Associate (ACE-A) certification!
  • Reduces your time out of office and optimizes certification costs by requiring only a single exam if you do not hold an Arista certification.
  • Enables your organization to achieve Partner Ready Gold level specialization faster.
  • Validates your expertise in one of these elective areas:
  • HPE FlexFabric Data Centers
  • HPE FlexNetwork Solutions

What’s new?

  • A brand new curriculum offering a new certification track for engineers looking for Data Center Networking skills.
  • Leverage previous investments made in the ASE FlexNetwork certifications by keeping same structure and offering new Data Center specialization choices between FlexFabric and Arista.


Next steps for current ASE and Master ASE FlexNetwork certification holders:

  • For those who have passed the Building HP FlexNetwork Data Center exam (HPE0-Y53, HP0-Y51 inactive, or HP2-Z34) your transcripts will be updated automatically. No action is necessary!
  • Others will need only a single exam to achieve a Data Center Network Architect or Integrator certification. Check the available Integrator and Architect upgrade paths via the links above.
