Hurricane Electric Expands Globally With Digital Realty to Help Customers Overcome Data Gravity Barriers With PlatformDIGITAL®

gbafNews28

Hurricane Electric, the world’s largest IPv4 and IPv6-native Internet backbone, today announced that it will provide new high-speed IP transit for Digital Realtys data centers in nine major global metros. The collaboration expands the global reach of PlatformDIGITAL, Digital Realtys global data center platform which is purpose-designed to enable customers to scale digital business.

Hurricane Electric has established points of presence (PoPs) at Digital Realty facilities in key global metros: Amsterdam, Ashburn, Dallas, Frankfurt, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and Zagreb, Croatia. According to Digital Realtys Data Gravity Index DGx„¢ report, which uncovers the intensity and gravitational force of enterprise data growth, Data Gravity Intensity is expected to more than double annually across analyzed metros through 2024. The nine new cities are among a group of 53 metros that are experiencing the most dramatic increase in Data Gravity Intensity globally.

As data continues to grow at an accelerating rate, enterprises will need to rely on IT infrastructure that is designed to be more data-centric, bringing users, networks and clouds closer to enterprise data. As part of its work with Digital Realty, Hurricane Electric will deploy Network Hubs on PlatformDIGITAL in each connected campus environment, creating centers of data exchange to scale digital business. By expanding connectivity in these metros, customers will have access to the consistent benefits PlatformDIGITAL provides in enabling the control, connectivity and optimization needed to overcome data gravity barriers.

Through the partnership, Hurricane Electric will leverage Digital Realtys network-rich data centers to provide Digital Realtys global customers with high-speed IP transit via Hurricane Electrics extensive IPv6 and IPv4 network through 1/10/100GE (Gigabit Ethernet) ports. As a result, both new and existing customers will benefit from reduced latency and improved traffic flow, as well as increased efficiency. Additionally, the new PoPs will provide Digital Realtys customers with improved fault tolerance, load balancing and congestion management in the delivery of next-generation IP connectivity services.

Todays network expansion will also play a pivotal role in supporting Digital Realtys Data Hub featuring NVIDIA DGX A100 systems deployment in Cloud House at the Interxion Digital Docklands Campus in London, U.K. The AI-ready infrastructure solution enables customers to rapidly deploy AI models in close proximity to their data sets.

As demands for colocation and connectivity continue to increase, we welcome Hurricane Electrics expansion to our facilities to meet our customers growing bandwidth needs, said Tony Bishop, SVP, Platform, Growth and Marketing, Digital Realty. The addition of Hurricane Electrics global network connectivity is significant as we continue to expand PlatformDIGITAL globally to help enterprises overcome the data gravity barriers inhibiting their digital transformation goals.

In addition to Hurricane Electrics new PoPs at the nine data centers and existing footprint with Digital Realty in the U.S., Hurricane Electric has also connected to the Digital Realty Internet Exchange (DRIX) with new connections in Ashburn and Chicago, in addition to Atlanta, Dallas, and New York, providing value to the connected community of network, cloud and content providers in these key metros. Connecting to these exchanges will provide networks with a direct path to Hurricane Electrics global network encompassing more than 250 major exchange points and more than 8,000 different networks.

Hurricane Electric is excited to strengthen our relationship with Digital Realty by extending our global network to their diverse growing base of customers across the globe, said Walt Wollny, Director of Interconnection Strategy at Hurricane Electric. This network expansion across Digital Realtys data center footprint will enable their customers, partners, suppliers, and employees to interact with Hurricane Electrics vast global network while providing additional high-speed IP transit options.

Did You Acquire Penumbra between August 3, 2020 and December 15, 2020? Class Action Deadline Notice – Contact Johnson Fistel

gbafNews28

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Johnson Fistel, LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has commenced on behalf of shareholders of Penumbra, Inc. (“Penumbra” or the “Company”) (NYSE: PEN). The class action is on behalf of shareholders who purchased Penumbra between August 3, 2020 and December 15, 2020, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff in this class action, you must move the Court no later than March 16, 2021.

 [click here to join this action]. There is no cost or obligation to you.

Penumbra is a global healthcare company that develops, manufactures, and sells innovative medical devices for patients suffering from stroke and other vascular and neurovascular diseases.  Until recently, one of the Company's flagship products was the “Jet 7 Xtra Flex,” an aspiration catheter designed to be inserted into an affected artery, navigated to a blood clot and used to suck the clot out of the patient's body.  In mid-2020, concerns about the Jet 7 Xtra Flex's safety began to emerge.  Despite these concerns, Penumbra repeatedly assured investors during the Class Period that the Jet 7 Xtra Flex was “absolutely safe,” “exactly what we hoped it would be,” and “not a product that has any possibility of needing to be recalled.” The Company further assured investors that it was taking all necessary steps to protect patients.

As alleged in the Class Action Complaint, these statements and other statements that Defendants made during the Class Period were materially false and misleading in violation of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and SEC Rule 10b-5.  Specifically, the Complaint alleges that Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Jet 7 Xtra Flex's safety, as well as the Company's business, operations, and prospects.  Among other things, Defendants failed to disclose to investors: (1) that the Jet 7 Xtra Flex had known design defects that made it unsafe for its normal use; (2) that Penumbra did not adequately address the risk of Jet 7 Xtra Flex causing serious injury and deaths, which had already occurred; (3) that the Jet 7 Xtra Flex was likely to be recalled due to its safety issues; and (4) as a result, Penumbra's public statements as set forth above were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.  

The truth emerged through a series of disclosures that caused Penumbra's stock price to fall and investors to suffer substantial losses.  On September 14, 2020, the Foundation for Financial Journalism, an independent non-profit news outlet, published an article raising serious issues about the Jet 7 Xtra Flex's safety profile, citing twelve deaths reported to the FDA that occurred after a surgeon injected an iodine contrast dye into the Jet 7 Xtra Flex, and claiming that warnings against using the product with contrast dye and non-Penumbra products did little to address the Jet 7 Xtra Flex's safety issues. 

A lead plaintiff will act on behalf of all other class members in directing the Penumbra class action lawsuit.  The lead plaintiff can select a law firm of its choice to litigate the Penumbra class-action lawsuit.  An investor's ability to share any potential future recovery of the Penumbra class action lawsuit is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.  If you are interested in learning more about the case, please contact Jim Baker ([email protected]) at 619-814-4471.  If you email, please include your phone number.

NAIFA Family Response Fund Expanded to Assist Winter Storm Victims in Texas

gbafNews28

FALLS CHURCH, Va., Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) has expanded access to the NAIFA Family Response Fund to benefit members of the association impacted by deadly winter storms in Texas. Officials in Texas and media reports indicate the extreme weather and associated utility outages have resulted in significant property losses and fatalities.

NAIFA originally created the fund to assist members affected by several hurricanes and later expanded it to help NAIFA members with unexpected out-of-pocket medical or funeral expenses related to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“I am a proud NAIFA member and when I see our association go above and beyond in these times to support our members it only reinforces how great this organization and its members truly are,” said NAIFA-TX President Danny O'Connell. “I encourage anyone who is eligible and in need to apply and for the rest of our membership to support those in need at this time.”

Anyone who would like to donate and NAIFA members or dependents seeking assistance may do so online at https://www.cfacadiana.org/NAIFA.

“We often forget that insurance and financial professionals, while they are helping their clients during times of crisis, can also be victimized by natural disasters,” said NAIFA President Tom Michel. “NAIFA Nation is like a family, and we will do what we can to help those suffering losses due to these horrible winter storms.”

NAIFA worked with its grant-management partner, the Community Foundation of Acadiana, to establish the fund and is currently accepting contributions to meet pressing needs. The NAIFA Family Response Fund follows similar relief efforts NAIFA created for members affected by natural disasters, including Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in 2017, Hurricane Florence in 2018, and Western U.S. wildfires in 2020.

ABOUT NAIFA: The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors is the preeminent membership association for the multigenerational community of financial professionals in the United States. NAIFA members subscribe to a strong Code of Ethics and represent a full spectrum of financial services practice specialties. They work with families and businesses to help Americans improve financial literacy and achieve financial security. NAIFA provides producers a national community for advocacy, education and networking along with awards, publications and leadership opportunities to allow NAIFA members to differentiate themselves in the marketplace. NAIFA has 53 state and territorial chapters and 35 large metropolitan local chapters. NAIFA members in every congressional district advocate on behalf of producers and consumers at the state, interstate and federal levels.
