What you missed yesterday at Discover 2016

Yesterday was Day 1 at Discover 2016 for our customer attendees but was Day 3 for our Partner Ready Certification and Learning community. Our 30,000 square feet of floor space was buzzing with activity with our partners taking full advantage of free technical training and two free proctored exams to achieve new certifications.

General Session

Once again this year, our Master ASE and Synergy 100 partner community had exclusive front row seating during the keynote session.

There were a number of exciting announcements made during the keynote session, including the announcement of the extension of composability beyond HPE Synergy with the OneView 3.0 global dashboard. Here at HPE Discover, we are already certifying our partner community on OneView 3.0. This certification, HPE Product Certified – OneView [2016], is now available.

Synergy 100

Speaking of Synergy, over 90 of our partners attended Synergy training and celebrated their accomplishment during a special evening event hosted in our Partner Ready Certification and Learning Lounge with senior HPE Synergy executive, and our special guest, Sam Bird.


Sam, returned to the lounge and spoke to our Synergy 100 partners about what it takes to race these cars. And yes, there is more strategy and planning required in Formula E racing than F1. From the batteries, real-time car telemetry, to the Fan Boost feature, it was an exciting event. Questions from our partners ranged from battery performance, regenerative braking, to how Sam manages to stay focused on his race strategy while monitoring every aspect of his car’s performance.


We are looking forward to another busy and exciting day here at HPE Discover and our lounge. Tonight we are hosting our annual Master ASE appreciation event and expect over 250 partners to attend and hear from our special guest speakers, including Steven Hagler and KC Choi.

If you haven’t already dropped by the lounge to say hi, make sure you visit us today. We are located on level 1 in Casanova 601 and open from 8am to 3pm.

Thank you,

Karl Kovacs
