In Memoriam to LX Labs owner KT Ligesh

Over the past five and a half years since Enomaly was formed, I have had the honour of fostering relationships with unique characters in the burgeoning hosting and visualization world. During that period of time, a few individuals have stood out from the rest who have left a profound impression with me. These individuals are those rare people you meet who share that common passion for emerging technology as well as a distinct drive to compete. One such person was KT Ligesh, the founder and lead developer at LX Labs a multi-virtualization system vendor based Bangalore India.

Although Ligesh was the founder of a competitive software company, he and I had a chance to get to know each other. In describing Ligesh, I would say he was an intensely ambitious and creative individual with a flare for coming up with new and interesting products. He had a knack for the corner cases that made sense to only him. Something I contributed to his Indian heritage, but most likely was because of his unique form of genius. Unfortunately Ligesh was haunted by his troubled past which caught up with him yesterday. This a sad day for cloud computing and Ligesh will be missed.

My condolences go out to all who knew and cared for him.
