Our product is called "Lumeta" on the GUI, CLI, and API. The legacy names "Spectre" and "ESI" have been removed or replaced. However, the default hostname and root prompt is programmed to be "esi-" followed by the hex encoded IP address. This instance is temporary and will only remain until your system admin changes the host name.
