Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres speak with Narayan Desai and Cory Lueninghoener of Argonne National Laboratory, about BCFG2 (http://trac.mcs.anl.gov/projects/bcfg2).

Narayan Desai is a principal experimental systems engineer at Argonne National Laboratory. He specializes in system software and system management issues, specifically for very large scale parallel computing systems. He has written and spoken widely on these issues, and leads the Bcfg2 configuration management project.

Cory Lueninghoener is a high performance computing system administrator at Argonne National Laboratory.  After starting out on modest-sized clusters while a grad student at the University of Nebraska, he worked his way up the Top500 list and is currently a lead administrator on Intrepid, Argonne's 40 rack BlueGene/P system.  He is especially interested in configuration management on large HPC resources and is an active participant in the Bcfg2 project.
