Introducing our new SysFera bloggers!

Considering their huge motivation, we've decided to include some new members into our permanent blogging team. To others, they are working for Sysfera, (a company developing and distributing SysFera-DS software, see below), but to us, they are experts in grid computing, and will help us to follow events, and decrypt e-science technologies...

David Loureiro is the CEO of SysFera. He holds an MSc in Applied Mathematics from EPU Lyon (formerly ISTIL). After working three years within INRIA team GRAAL (at the Laboratoire d'Informatique du Parallélisme, ENS Lyon), he co-founded the SysFera company, which
was officially created in March 2010. He likes wrist watches,  old NES games and rugby.
Benjamin Depardon is the CTO of SysFera. He holds an MSc and a PhD in
Computer Science from Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France, and a
MSc in Computer Science from INSA de Lyon. His main interests lie in
grid and cloud computing, workflow management and big data. When he's
not working, he enjoys hiking, climbing, and pretty much every
mountain-related sport.

Augustin Ragon is SysFera's Communication and Marketing Officer. He
obtained a degree of Literary Translation from University of Avignon,
France and an undergraduate technical diploma in Computer Science from
IUT A in Lyon, France. After two years at INRIA team RESO (at the
Laboratoire d'Informatique du Parallélisme, ENS Lyon), he joined SysFera
in March 2010. He likes most team sports, rock music and bad movies.

SysFera develops and distributes SysFera-DS: an open-source software solution for mutualizing, managing and optimizing heterogeneous and distributed HPC resources and infrastructures, in particular for intensive applications. SysFera-DS offers a simple, efficient, evolutive and transparent way to make using HPC resources easier and faster for end-users and administrators. It is based upon more than 10 years of research work by GRAAL, an INRIA research team based at the LIP (Laboratoire d'Informatique du Parallélisme) at École Normale Supérieure Lyon, France.
SysFera provides tools, support and maintenance for this solution. It also proposes consulting and training courses for its customers. SysFera continuously develops new features in close collaboration with research labs and innovative customers.
