We’ve had a great few months at various NonStop events through the middle part of the year. You can see a video recap of the NonStop events on YouTube.
Andrew Price with HPE Taiwan and Partners at the Taiwan Tech Show
In June, Todd Barth headed to Dallas for the N2TUG meeting. Over 80 people attended this show, which is always a highlight for us. Jeff Skinner from HPE and Cristina Buenida from R3 presented on HPE’s Mission Critical Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) based on R3 Corda. A highlight though, for all us old Tandem folks, was the presentation from Tandem founder Jimmy Treybig on the state of the venture capital market. Great to see Jimmy again! Congratulations to Dorothy Fontanelli from Accenture and Mark Stanfill from Syniverse, both of whom won our Echo Dot giveaways!
In July Andrew Price headed to North Asia to attend a number of events in Korea and Taiwan. Each customer event was preceded by a partner event, so in Seoul, Andrew first presented with local HPE staff and partners, and on the following day attending KNUG to meet with and present NuWave’s LightWave solutions to customers in the region.

The Korean event was well attended, with strong numbers of both customers and partners present. One key presentation was from R3's Tom Menner, covering the Enterprise version of their Corda product, which, when deployed on NonStop, is HPE's Mission Critical Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) solution.

Later in the week the HPE Taiwan team hosted a partner day for local HPE staff and distributors where Andrew presented and demo’ed LightWave solutions. It was great to see HPE recognize the importance of REST and JSON as part of their prep for the customer event.

This was followed by the HPE Taiwan NonStop Technology Day, attended by approximately 60 key customers in the local NonStop market. The day was kicked off by HPE Taiwan’s Luke Shyng, and also featured a lunch with execs from all the customers present.

Excellent products updates from Mark Pollans at both customer events ensured that the local folks got the latest info on NonStop features and roadmaps.
Both the partner and the customer events were great and we enjoying spending time in what is a new region for NuWave.
Finally, in September we attended OZTUG events in Sydney and Melbourne. Andrew Price, who is also the OZTUG President, represented NuWave at both events. Between the two events, over 90 people attended, representing most of the NonStop users in Australia, and even some from New Zealand. Roland Lemoine made the trip down from the US to present on Mission Critical DLT and Suresh Menon came from Singapore to present NonStop updates. Congratulations to Stan Angelis from FIS who won an Echo Dot!
