Daphne Arrives at Ligent

Daphne, the newest of a long line of Linux-based virtual private servers, is now operational at Ligent.  Daphne runs Centos 7 and is hosted at Rose Hosting.  The move to Rose was motivated by Rose’s claim of strong support for Django and Python.  Django implementations of a number of Ligent applications are currently under development.  Meanwhile, Daphne includes a Liferay server on which the legacy Ligent applications are running.

The name Daphne was chosen in honor of Django Reinhardt, after whom the Django Web application serving framework was named.  Daphne is the name of one of Reinhardt’s most popular works.

Stay tuned for more Django developments on Daphne!


Thunder Arrives at Ligent

The various Ligent Web sites, including Escape Veloicity, have been hosted on a succession of virtual servers provisioned by Eapps.  Thunder is the newest cloud server that Ligent has created at Eapps.  Starting this week, Ligent apps are starting to transition from our old server (Cloud) to Thunder.  As of this posting, Escape Velocity is now running on Thunder.

Long live Thunder.
