Vivek Shrivastava is a seasoned big data architect with more than 16 years of varied experience in a variety of verticals, including marketing, e-commerce, telecom, banking, and life sciences. An early adopter of the Hadoop ecosystem, Vivek has hands-on experience with the various Hadoop design patterns — from cluster administration to strategic design, to low-level security development and the implementation of petabyte stacks, Vivek has seen the bulk of the challenges that Hadoop-based systems present.
In recent years Vivek has specialized in setting up secure cloud-based Hadoop clusters. This includes the initial steps of standing up the right combination of nodes and instances, establishing the security perimeter, enabling kerberos, and validating the set up of encryption zones (at-rest, in-transit).
Vivek holds Bachelor of Engineering in Electronics and Instrumentation and is currently pursuing an M.S. in Data Science.
