The SDC (Storage, Digitalization + Cloud) Awards, now in their 10th year, recognize and reward success in the products and services that are foundational to digital transformation. Lightbits received the honor for how the company is reimagining hyperscale storage for next-generation applications.

Co-founded by veteran Israeli entrepreneur and founder of Annapurna Avigdor Willenz, Lightbits introduced three groundbreaking technologies in its first year out of stealth mode: LightOS, LightField, and SuperSSD. The company was cited for its leadership in delivering software defined solution that runs on commodity hardware to disaggregate storage and compute over standard networks, allowing them to scale independently (increasing flexibility & efficiency) and maximizing resource utilization (lowering TCO) while delivering performance that is similar to direct-attached SSDs. Lightbits pioneered NVMe/TCP so its solution is easy to deploy at scale.

“Being recognized by our peers and voters from around the globe for this award highlights the increasingly important role of practical, smart and forward-thinking storage solutions for true digital transformation,” said Eran Kirzner, co-founder and CEO at Lightbits Labs. “Companies are responsible for vast amounts of data through both public and private clouds, and the volume of data continues to grow exponentially. We’re proud that our solutions are being recognized for their transformational role in addressing the data storage challenges that are so prevalent in enterprises today.”

In March 2019, Lightbits introduced its groundbreaking LightOS and LightField. The LightOS software and LightField storage acceleration card provide a high-performance, end-to-end disaggregation solution that can scale without requiring any changes to data center clients or network infrastructure. They were the industry’s first NVMe/TCP solutions to provide a Global Flash Translation Layer (GFTL) running over high-performance standard networks. The solutions allow private clouds and software-as-a-service (SaaS) providers to capitalize on the application performance of using local NVMe SSDs with the simplicity and efficiency of hyperscale solutions.

As trailblazers of a new storage paradigm, Lightbits’ solutions are successfully being used in industry-leading cloud data centers around the globe. The company is gaining industry recognition for its ground-breaking solutions and has received three industry awards over the past six months.

Ipsen’s palovarotene clinical program in fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva reaches prespecified interim analysis futility criteria24.1.2020 09:00:00 EETPress release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) today announced the decision to pause dosing patients in the global Phase III (PVO-1A-301) study designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of palovarotene in patients with fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP), as well as the ongoing Phase II (PVO-1A-202/204) extension studies. In both the Phase III and Phase II extension studies, palovarotene is dosed both chronically (daily) and episodically (during flare-ups). The decision to pause dosing patients in the trial is based on results of a futility analysis reviewed by the Independent Data Monitoring Committee (IDMC) as part of the prespecified interim analysis. The results of a futility analysis indicated that the Phase III FOP trial was unlikely to meet its primary efficacy endpoint (annualized change in new HO volume as compared with Natural History Studyi) upon completion. Despite the results of the prespecified interim analysis, signals of encouraging therapeutic activity w
