Global Testing Retreat #ATAGTR2019 welcomes Ruban Kumar as our esteemed speaker

We would like to Welcome Ruban Kumar as our esteemed speaker for Global Testing Retreat #ATAGTR2019
Ruban Kumar is from Chennai. He has completed Bachelor of Technology in Information and Technology from Sri Sairam Institute of Technology Chennai.
He is working as a BigData Administrator in TCS Chennai, having sound knowledge and experience in problem solving, managing DBs and troubleshooting skills.
Ruban is our esteemed speaker for #ATAGTR2019.
Ruban will be taking a hands on Lab Session onBenchmarking Hadoop by its Functional/Performance Testing and Leveraging to Current Business Expectations.” – on Day 1 – Track 4


The key feature of Bigdata is ‘tremendous growth(volume) of data in high speed(velocity)’ particularly Unstructured data. The performance of data processing and computation is indirectly proportional to Bigdata features (Volume, Velocity & Variety). Though Hadoop was powerful framework to deal Bigdata, nowadays many Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics departments are facing challenges with Hadoop Eco-systems because of its storage and processing architecture.

As Hadoop is a Cluster, Parallel Computing & Distributed Storage/Computing, the performance depends on lot of factors like Networks, Storage Disks, Memory, CPU etc. To get more value from Hadoop in Data Warehouse and Data Analytics use cases, many users are modernizing certain aspects of their Implementation. For example, to lower the cost and simplify the maintenance of Hadoop clusters, users are migrating Hadoop clusters from their premises to different cloud environment. Similarly, In an EMC Isilon Hadoop deployment, the HDFS is integrated as a protocol into the Isilon distributed OneFS operating system. This approach gives users direct access through the HDFS to data stored on the Isilon cluster using standard protocols such as SMB, NFS, HTTP, and FTP.

In this presentation (a) We are covering different testing and benchmarking methodologies to ensure the quality in-terms of data storage and processing in Hadoop Environment. (b) As the native Execution engine (MapReduce) of Hadoop has latency in process, how can we leverage Hadoop in Current Data Technology. (c) How we can leverage and Integrate Hadoop with Advanced Data science frameworks to have better outcomes in predictive Analytics.

We had posted some questions to Ruban as a part of his #ATAMyStory
1. Why should someone choose testing as a career? Or What does testing really mean to you?
Testing is the backbone for the software industry. Because, every software product release is done after testing only. By doing testing itself we can judge that the product is free of defects/bugs, and also for the customers satisfaction.
Providing a quality product to end customer makes me proud and happy.
2. While practice makes all of us perfect, share an everyday practice that has made things better for you at work
1. I always keep myself updated on new comings(product/technology) through internet.
2. I look at the positive side of every situation, that keeps me going.
3. Challenge yourself every now and then.
