Hyperscale datacenters can be termed as a facility owned by the companies to offer cloud spaces for cloud computing and big data storage. It has at least 500 storage cabinets covering 10,000 Sq. Ft of space and has over 5,000 servers conected with an ultra-high-speed fiber network and offers with infrastructural cost to the end-user.New York, March 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report "Hyperscale Datacenter Market - Growth, Trends, COVID-19 Impact, and Forecasts (2021 - 2026)" - https://www.reportlinker.com/p06028501/?utm_source=GNW - Data in the recent past was considered as the foundation of an emerging economy. Almost all enterprises are using more data than what they did before and will probably consume even more data in the future. This rapidly increasing generation of data has to be stored and accessed from somewhere.- This reality has driven the rise of hyperscale data centers, which are a super-sized version of the mission-critical facilities that consist of the servers powering the Internet. Increasing cloud workloads have influenced companies like Amazon Web Services, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and Apple to invest huge sums, around USD 1 billion to USD 3 billion, in a single campus to bring out the utmost efficiency.- The upsurge of hyperscale computing is all about businesses and their association with their data and IT operations. Companies/enterprises do not want to spend millions of dollars to build and operate a data center.- Some of the key drivers that are directly influencing the hyperscale data center growth are cloud computing, software platforms, social media, and content delivery. Social media has evolved to be a powerful tool, with over 2.28 billion users worldwide, generating volumes of data in the form of blogs, tweets, updates, images, and videos.- According to Cisco Systems, the global IP data traffic increased from 96,054 petabytes per month in 2016 to 150,910 petabytes per month in 2018 and is anticipated to reach 278,108 petabytes per month by 2021.- Further, the growing volume of Big Data across the business eco-system is gaining maturity. A recent study by Accenture in May 2018 stated that 79% of enterprise executives agreed that companies that do not embrace Big Data would lose their competitive position and are expected to face extinction. Currently, 83% of enterprises pursue Big Data projects to seize a competitive edge.- The emergence of Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) is also an indication of the increasing penetration of data across end users, an area still in the early stages of formalization, according to Oracle. Also, the number of data providers, particularly in web-sourced data, is constantly increasing, adding to the growth of the market.Key Market TrendsEnterprises to Hold Major Share- In recent times, workloads in large enterprises are being consolidated into larger and more efficient facilities, and it has become commonplace for hyperscale companies like Amazon Web Services, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Apple to invest USD 1 billion to USD 3 billion in a single campus.- This trend is part of the larger densification of America’s IT infrastructure, which will include data centers in many new and unexpected places.- The upsurge of hyperscale computing is all about businesses and their association with their data and IT operations. Enterprises do not want to spend millions of dollars to build and operate a data center.- Further, the growing volume of Big Data across the business eco-system is gaining maturity. A recent study by Accenture in May 2018 stated that 79% of enterprise executives agreed that companies that do not embrace Big Data would lose their competitive position and are expected to face extinction. Currently, 83% of enterprises pursue Big Data projects to seize a competitive edge. This has increased the demand for hyperscale data centers among the enterprises.United States to Dominate the Market- The United States has continued its growth in data center infrastructure solutions. Modular data center investments in tier-2 cities is expected to drive the installation of center facilities, especially for local users, which is driving the growth of the data center cooling market.- In the United States, the rate of adoption of cloud-based computing is rapidly increasing, owing to which, data centers are increasing in the country. According to Credit Suisse, the United States accounts for the highest number of hyperscale data centers worldwide, by holding about 40% in the country.- Several efforts have been made by the United States to modernize its infrastructure. In a plan to achieve this, the US Army is planning to spend up to USD 249 million to deploy private cloud computing services and data centers. General Dynamics HP and Northrop Grumman are among the service providers selected for the Army Private Cloud contract, which will provide cloud computing services to consolidate data centers using a secure private cloud.- Businesses in the United States stand to benefit from the data centers because fir purposes of the US Federal Communications Commission compliance certification, the data center is considered one unit (rather than several discrete systems). This will result in cost benefits and convenience, thereby lessening the burden on users.- The United States is home to many tech giants, such as Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Facebook, offering hyperscale data centers. Also, the volume of Big Data is tremendously increasing; moreover, companies are adopting new strategies to ascend several data centers.- The companies in the country are extensively investing in AI infrastructure, which demands the need for immediate processing of vast amounts of data being acquired on a real-time basis. Also, the governments in the region are taking initiatives to adopt upcoming technologies. In February 2019, the US government announced the Artificial Intelligence Initiative to prioritize AI investments in research and development, increase access to federal data and models for that research, and prepare workers to adapt to the era of AI.Competitive LandscapeThe market for hyperscale datacenters is highly consolidated because of the dominance by a few key companies in the market. Also, the barrier for new entrants is high due to the requirement of the high initial cost to enter into the market. These are companies that are continuously investing in making strategic partnership and acquisition to gain more market share. Some of the recent developments by the companies are listed below.- January 2020- Microsoft Corporation announced a partnership with AT&T for enabling next-generation solutions on the edge. The partnership is aimed at enabling new 5G, cloud, and edge computing solutions to drive enterprise capabilities for companies around the world.- September 2019 - EdgeConneX, a data center solution provider, declared a partnership with Lume to leverage its Cloud Anyware services. The partnership enables the company to accomplish goals like bringing its cloud solutions to the Edge, local and highly proximate to its enterprise customers.Reasons to Purchase this report:- The market estimate (ME) sheet in Excel format- 3 months of analyst supportRead the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p06028501/?utm_source=GNWAbout ReportlinkerReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.

Earnings Conference Call at 10am PST (1pm EST) Today VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Endeavour Silver Corp. (NYSE: EXK; TSX: EDR) released today its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2020. The Company operates three silver-gold mines in Mexico: the Guanaceví mine in Durango state, the Bolañitos mine in Guanajuato state and the El Compas mine in Zacatecas state. All dollar ($) amounts are reported in United States dollars (US$). Bradford Cooke, Endeavour CEO, commented, “While 2019 was operationally the most challenging in our 16-year history as a producing company, 2020 was perhaps one of the most satisfying. Notwithstanding a government mandated two-month suspension of mining operations due to the COVID pandemic, we delivered higher production and lower costs at each of our three operating mines in 2020.” “Lower costs coupled with higher metal prices drove significantly higher revenues, cash flow and earnings, which turned positive for the first time in three years thanks to our very strong performance in Q4, 2020. The operational turn-around programs implemented in 2019 have been a big success operationally and financially, a testament to the hard work, skill, passion and persistence of our operations team.” “We remain alert regarding the COVID pandemic in Mexico and diligent with all our health and safety protocols, continuing to prioritize our employees’ safety as a key goal. I am pleased to report that Guanacevi, our largest mine, posted a second consecutive year with more than 1 million hours worked without a lost time accident.” 2020 Fourth Quarter Highlights Gross Sales: $61.2 million, up 81% from $34.6 million in Q4, 2019 on the sale of 1.4 million ounces (oz) of silver and 13,850 oz gold at average realized prices of $24.76 per oz silver and $1,885 per oz gold.Cash Flow: $21.6 million from operations before working capital changes, up from negative $7.9 million in 2019, mine operating cash flow before taxes(1) was $30.2 million up from $4.9 million in Q4 2019.Net Income: $19.9 million ($0.13 per share), up from a net loss of $17.9 million in Q4, 2019, Q4 2020 EBITDA was $24.3 million.Metal Production: 1,117,289 oz silver and 12,586 oz gold for 2.1 million oz silver equivalent (AgEq), up 25% compared to 1,705,751 oz AgEq in Q4, 2019 using an 80:1 silver:gold ratio.Cash Cost(1): $6.83 per oz silver payable net of gold credits, down 50% from $13.63 per oz in Q4, 2019. Direct cost per tonne increased due to higher royalty payments and third-party ore purchased at the Guanaceví mine, partly offset by lower costs at the Bolanitos and El Compas mines. Excluding royalties and special mining duties, operating cost per tonne declined in Q4, 2020 due to improved productivity.All-in Sustaining Cost (AISC)(1): $18.52 per oz silver payable net of gold credits, down 20% from $23.20 per oz in Q4, 2019. 2020 Full Year Highlights Gross Revenue: $140.3 million, up 15% from $121.7 million in 2019 on the sale of 3.5 million oz of silver and 35,519 oz gold at average realized prices of $21.60 per oz silver and $1,846 per oz gold.

(1) Mine operating cash flow, direct cost per tonne, direct operating cost per tonne, cash costs and all-in sustaining costs are non-IFRS measures. Please refer to the definitions in the Company’s Management Discussion & Analysis. Financial Overview In 2020, revenue, net of smelting and refining costs, increased 18% to $138.4 million as sharply higher metal prices were partly offset by 9% lower silver equivalent production year on year. Mine operating cash flows, operating cash flows, earnings and EBITDA all substantially increased compared to 2019. Net earnings improved to $1.2 million compared to a net loss of $48.1 million in 2019, including $19.9 million earnings in Q4, 2020. A Company-wide review of operations in early 2019 identified several opportunities to improve operating performance. As a result, management initiated multiple remedial measures including changes of mine-site management and mining contractors, changes to shift and contractor supervision, renting used mining equipment, leasing new mining equipment and reducing the work force. The goal of these remedial measures was to improve safety, boost productivity, reduce operating costs and generate free cash flow. Management notes that the remedial measures had a positive impact on mine operating performance, the operational turn-arounds were completed last year and the benefit of these initiatives was realized in the second half of 2020. These improvements accommodated increased health protocols and new government restrictions related to the COVID-19 global pandemic (COVID-19), including the temporary suspension of mining operations in April and May of 2020. Direct costs per tonne in 2020 increased 4%, to $114.57 compared with 2019 due to higher royalties, special mining duties and toll ore purchases offset by improved productivity at the Guanaceví and Bolañitos operation, the depreciation of the Mexican Peso and the exclusion of the El Cubo operation, which suspended activities in Q4, 2019. Direct operating cost per tonne, which excludes royalties and special mining duties, was 6% lower at $101.17 per tonne compared to $107.96 per tonne in 2019. Consolidated cash costs per oz, net of by-product credits, decreased 57% to $5.55 primarily due to higher ore grades and higher a realized gold price that increased the by-product credit compared to 2019. All-in sustaining cost decreased 17% to $17.59 per oz in 2020 as a result of lower operating costs partly offset by higher corporate general and administrative costs and increased capital expenditures to accelerate mine development. General and administrative costs increased $2.7 million primarily due to a $3.5 million expense related the mark to market of deferred share units. Financial Results (Consolidated Statement of Operations Appended Below) For the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company generated net revenue totalling $138.4 million (2019 - $117.4 million). During the year, the Company sold 3,460,638 silver oz and 35,519 gold oz at realized prices of $21.60 and $1,846 per oz respectively, compared to sales of 4,054,652 oz silver and 39,151 oz gold at realized prices of $16.29 and $1,422 per oz respectively in 2019. Cost of sales for 2020 was $111.1 million, a decrease of 18% over the cost of sales of $134.8 million for 2019. The 18% decrease in cost of sales was primarily related to the 21% decrease in tonnes processed and the depreciation of the Mexican Peso while cost cutting and efficiency measures implemented during 2019 were partly offset by inefficiencies of the suspension and re-start of activities due to COVID-19 and higher royalty expense with the rising prices. Royalties increased 301% to $8.2 million due to higher realized prices and the increased mining of the high grade El Curso property at the Guanacevi operation which is subject to significantly higher royalty rates. Mine operating earnings was $27.3 million compared to a loss of $17.4 million in 2019. Excluding depreciation and depletion of $28.1million (2019 - $31.5 million), stock-based compensation of $0.3 million (2019- $0.2 million) and the inventory write off of $0.4 million (2019- $0.6 million) mine operating cash flow before taxes was $56.2 million in 2020 (2019 – $14.9 million). Operating losses before taxes was $0.8 million (2019 – loss of $43.9 million) after exploration expenditures of $9.8 million (2019 – $12.0 million), general and administrative expense of $12.7 million (2019 – $10.0 million), care and maintenance expense for the shutdown of the El Cubo mine of $3.0 million and $2.2 million in care and maintenance costs related to the temporary suspension of the Guanaceví, Bolañitos and El Compas operations due to COVID-19 in Q2, 2020. In 2020, the operating loss included impairments, net of impairment reversals, of non-current assets of $0.4 million related the value in use estimates of the Guanacevi and El Compas operations. The operating loss for 2019 included a severance expense of $4.6 million related to the suspension of operations at El Cubo at the end of 2019. There was an income tax recovery of $2.2 million in 2020 compared to an income tax expense of $4.1 million in 2019. The $2.2 million tax recovery is comprised of $3.0 million in current income tax expense (2019 - $2.7 million) and $5.2 million in deferred income tax recovery (2019- $1.4 million deferred income tax expense). The current income tax expense consists of $2.0 million of special mining duty taxes and $1.0 million of income taxes. In 2019, the Company did not pay special mining duty due the losses generated at the operations. The deferred income tax recovery of $5.2 million is primarily due recognition loss carry forwards as the future profitability of the Guanacevi operation has significantly increased with the recent increase in reserve estimates.

Phoenix, AZ, March 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InnSuites Hospitality Trust (NYSE American: IHT) IHT CLEAN ENERGY DIVERSIFICATION PROGRESS InnSuites Hospitality Trust (IHT) reported fiscal 2021 second quarter revenues of approximately $1 million for the three months May 1, 2020 to July 31, 2020 compared to revenues of approximately $1.54 million for the same prior year period. Basic earnings per share for the three months ended July 31, 2020 was ($0.14) compared with ($0.05) for the three months ended July 31, 2019. This decline was largely attributable to the negative impact of the Covid-19 virus pandemic. In 2019, InnSuites Hospitality Trust (IHT) made an initial $1 million bond diversification investment convertible into 1 million shares of privately held UniGen Power, Inc. (UPI), a company developing a patented high profit potential new efficient clean energy generation innovation. In addition to the initial investment which could be converted into 1 million UPI shares, IHT also holds 2 Million warrants convertible into an additional 2 million UPI shares, which could result in IHT holding an approximate 25% ownership in UPI in the future. IHT is informed that UPI has made positive progress to date on development of this innovation, with the first Prototype scheduled to be operational on or before June 30, 2021. James Wirth, President /CEO /chairman of IHT cautioned of the challenges of any new innovation but indicated confidence in the technical team based in Detroit and in the encouraging progress over the last 14 months despite the Covid-19 pandemic. Hospitality industry results for IHT for the second fiscal quarter of Fiscal 2021, reflected the continued economic and travel industry slowdown caused by the Virus and various travel and lockdown restrictions. The sense of IHT Management, according to James Wirth President, CEO, and Board Chairman, is that the IHT stock is trading below its true underlying value based on IHT stock being closely held, the company capitalization being small, recent substantial profits coming from asset sales well above low book value, as well as IHT continuing assets held at low book values believed to have substantially higher market value, indicating substantial future profit potential. The Trust strategy of pursuing the highly promising UniGen diversification, and/or a larger reverse merger partner seeking a NYSE American listing is progressing.

-- VAZALORE is the first ever liquid-filled aspirin capsule with an innovative delivery platform indicated as a pain reliever, fever reducer and for aspirin therapy in vascular indications – -- U.S. commercial launch of VAZALORE planned for third quarter 2021 -- SPARTA, N.J., March 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PLx Pharma Inc. (NASDAQ: PLXP) (“PLx” or the “Company”) is a late-stage specialty pharmaceutical company focused on its clinically-validated and patent-protected PLxGuard™ drug delivery platform designed to provide more effective and safer products. PLx announced today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approved supplemental new drug applications (“sNDAs”) for its lead products, VAZALORE™ 325 mg and VAZALORE™ 81 mg (referred to together as “VAZALORE”), the first ever novel, liquid-filled aspirin capsule. “The approval of the VAZALORE sNDAs marks a significant milestone that brings us closer to providing an innovative aspirin to millions of patients who need reliable and predictable antiplatelet therapy,” stated Natasha Giordano, President and Chief Executive Officer of PLx. “We are delighted that the FDA approved both sNDAs for VAZALORE, and we are eager to implement our commercial launch plans later this year. We look forward to introducing VAZALORE to the medical community and to patients who can benefit from this breakthrough technology designed to reduce the risk of stomach injury,” concluded Giordano. In October 2020, the Company submitted separate supplemental new drug applications (“sNDAs”) for each dose strength. The submissions were considered chemistry and manufacturing control (“CMC”) filings as they included information on a change in formulation and the new manufacturing site for VAZALORE 325 mg and a new product strength for the 81 mg dose. The submission for the 325 mg dose also contained the results of a clinical study, demonstrating VAZALORE's bioequivalence to immediate-release aspirin, further supporting the change in formulation. The submission for the 81 mg dose builds off the information in the original approved new drug application, as well as the recent sNDA submitted for VAZALORE 325 mg. About VAZALORE VAZALORE is an FDA-approved liquid-filled aspirin capsule that provides patients with vascular disease and diabetic patients who are candidates for aspirin therapy based on physician recommendation, with fast, reliable and predictable platelet inhibition as compared to enteric-coated aspirin. It also reduces the risk of stomach erosions and ulcers, as compared to immediate-release aspirin, common in an acute setting. About PLx Pharma Inc.PLx Pharma Inc. is a late-stage specialty pharmaceutical company focused on its clinically-validated and patent-protected PLxGuard™ drug delivery platform to provide more effective and safer products. The PLxGuard drug delivery platform works by targeting the release of active pharmaceutical ingredients to various portions of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
