Volt Active Data Founding Engineer John Hugg to co-present session on benefits of stringent testing
BEDFORD, Mass. – July 12, 2016 – Volt Active Data will present a webinar with Kyle Kingsbury, creator of the Jepsen tool for testing distributed systems, on July 28, 2016.
Jepsen tests are third-party tests for distributed databases that validate vendors’ guarantees about how they perform under various failure scenarios, especially network partitions. They have proven value as a tool in any distributed system tester’s arsenal.
Volt Active Data contracted with Kingsbury to design tests for Volt Active Data in 2016. Tests were conducted on Volt Active Data v6.3 in May and June, during which Volt Active Data was given the most stringent Jepsen test to date, including tests for strong serializability.
In this webinar, Kingsbury will talk about the testing process, how Jepsen works and what he found in Volt Active Data v6.3. Co-presenter John Hugg, the Founding Engineer at Volt Active Data, will discuss why these tests are important, how Volt Active Data reacted to test findings, incorporated them into Volt Active Data v6.4, and the QA process moving forward.

WHEN: Thursday, July 28, 1:00 pm ESDT/ 10:00 am PDT
WHO: Kyle Kingsbury, Creator, Jepsen; John Hugg, Founding Engineer, Volt Active Data
