A colleague recently asked me if performing a physical-to-virtual (P2V) conversion was still a valid task to do today. After all, I am the one who encourages everyone to virtualize like it's 2014! When the question was raised, I wasn't immediately familiar with the state of the tools. The gold standard in free tools is VMware Converter Standalone, but I hadn't used it for a good two or three years. The current version is 5.0.1, which was released in October 2012. Good thing, as anyone deploying a physical server before then would need to answer to me directly. Depending on the situation, I generally advise people to migrate applications and data to a new virtual machine compared to doing a P2V conversion. That's the academic approach. But what is good practical advice for P2V tasks today? When I inquired a bit more with my colleague about the P2V candidate, the idea of migrating it to a new VM sounded like a nearly impossible task due to the lack of real ownership and knowledge of the system and applications on this system — a Small Business Server 2011 (SBS) system. SBS solved a great need for companies to have basic file, print, email, and application platforms leveraging Microsoft technologies. After a quick few minutes identifying the scope of a proper migration to a new VM from an application and data perspective, the P2V approach sounded easier and less risky. Still, a P2V conversion does incur risk. For one thing, it doesn't remove any application or system configuration problems that occurred when the system was a physical server. There are plenty of potential gotchas associated with P2Vs as well. Here are some of the tips I recommend based on things that caught me over the past year. I shared them with my colleague (who successfully performed a P2V of the SBS server). The art of the P2V is indeed alive and well here in 2014. While a P2V has its own catch points, the benefits of virtualizing another system outweigh the risk of keeping one or more physical systems around. In my opinion, P2V is a great option when a proper application, data, and configuration migration simply isn't possible. What are your thoughts on a P2V today?

Investing in Energy Projects in Africa: The Deal Makers Are Gathering at African Utility Week Cape Town, South Africa, May 12, 2017 --( Says African Utility Week event director Evan Schiff, “We developed the African Power Finance & Investment Forum in response to a strong demand from investors and project leaders, to provide a unique insider's perspective on the outlook for African energy. The forum will feature expert speakers who will identify the key trends impacting project finance in regional energy markets with updates on and insights into market opportunities, sources of capital, financing instruments and access to project finance.” Some of the leading speakers and sessions at African Power Finance & Investment Forum: African utilities in an upside down world - Dr Jerome Booth, leading expert investor in emerging markets, author of ‘Emerging Markets in an Upside Down World’; Chairman of New Sparta Asset Management; co-founder of Ashmore, UK: “I shall be talking about the failure of finance theory, which has led to massive distortion in risk perceptions and asset allocation globally. This has impeded capital flow to private markets in Africa, to the detriment of both African economies and global savers.” The big three: Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana - Gavin Serkin, Managing Editor, Frontier Funds Consultancy, author of ‘Frontier: Exploring the Top Ten Emerging Markets of Tomorrow’, UK: “When you compare against the UK and US, most of Africa is doing the right thing! It’s all relative. The biggest opportunities occur where there is opportunity to scale access by consumers to services taken for granted by the rest of the world, and in this respect nowhere comes close to Nigeria.” Courting Capital: All investment dollars are not created equal - Subha Nagarajan, Managing Director for Africa, OPIC, USA: “Investors seeking opportunities in Africa should not have outsized return expectations, and should be willing to take a long term view of market evolution when balancing their risk-return expectations. One of the biggest challenges to investing in Africa continues to be the dearth of infrastructure required to support project construction and implementation.” Understanding of risks and their pricing – how can the supply of long-term local currency financing and hedging be improved? - Harald Hirschhofer, Senior Advisor, The Currency Exchange Fund (TCX), The Netherlands: “I think there is too much fear about the uncertainty of some renewable business models which drive up credit spreads. For example, solar technology is well tested now, project implementation risks are low in many countries, and pay as you go schemes work with low default rates. Bankers do not yet fully appreciate this.” The art of the deal (How Trump’s policies impact Africa) - Andrew Moorfield, Head of Natural Resources, Exotix Partners, UK: “We are finding that there is appetite for emerging and frontier market projects. They just have to be structured appropriately and hit the return requirement for investors.” Award-winning energy platform The 17th annual African Utility Week will gather over 7000 decision makers from more than 80 countries to source the latest solutions and meet over 300 suppliers. Along with multiple side events and numerous networking functions the event also boasts a five track conference with over 300 expert speakers.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jaguar Animal Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAGX) (Jaguar), an animal health company focused on developing and commercializing first-in-class gastrointestinal products for companion and production animals, foals, and high value horses, and Napo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Napo), a human health company developing and commercializing novel gastrointestinal prescription products from plants used traditionally in rainforest areas, today announced the appointment of Dr. Pravin Chaturvedi, a highly experienced drug development veteran who has spent more than 25 years in the pharmaceutical/biotech industry, as Chair of the combined company’s Scientific Advisory Board, following the expected close of the proposed merger of Jaguar and Napo. Dr. Chaturvedi has served as Chair of Napo’s Scientific Advisory Board since March 27, 2017. Dr. Chaturvedi is responsible for providing direction on strategy, tactics and oversight regarding advancing the development and commercialization of the companies’ drug pipelines, including, but not limited to, Mytesi® and SB-300. From 2006 to 2013, Dr. Chaturvedi served as Napo's Chief Scientific Officer and has remained a scientific adviser to the company since 2014. His track record of successful development includes participating in and/or leading development efforts for seven drugs, including Napo’s Mytesi® (crofelemer) product, which is approved by the U.S. FDA for the symptomatic relief of noninfectious diarrhea in adults with HIV/AIDS on antiretroviral therapy. For this indication, Dr. Chaturvedi led the key opinion leader efforts that contributed to the successful use of adaptive clinical trial design for the Mytesi® pivotal trial and its approval by the FDA. As announced March 31, 2017, Napo and Jaguar have entered a definitive merger agreement. Napo and Jaguar are in the process of evaluating potential follow-on indications for Mytesi® as part of the anticipated combination of the product pipelines of the two companies. Dr. Chaturvedi is chairing the investigation of Mytesi® for possible follow-on indications, which include chemotherapy-induced diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), for which proof of concept data is already in hand, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and diarrhea resulting from hospital-acquired infections such as Clostridium difficile, a bacterium that is the most common cause of infectious diarrhea in hospital settings. Napo recently convened a Scientific Advisory Board meeting with expert gastroenterologists, who provided advice on study populations and designs in IBS and IBD. As Douglas Drossman, MD, Professor Emeritus at the University of North Carolina, who is a gastroenterologist in private practice at Drossman Gastroenterology, noted, “The safety profile of crofelemer constitutes an advantage that differentiates it from many other gastrointestinal products.” Mytesi® is also being explored for treatment of important orphan gastrointestinal indications such as congenital diarrheal disorders (CDD) and diarrhea associated with short-bowel syndrome (SBS). CDDs are a group of rare, chronic intestinal channel diseases characterized by large, watery stools containing an excess of chloride and sodium, lifelong diarrhea, and a lifelong need for nutritional intake with a feeding tube. CDDs are related to specific genetic defects inherited as autosomal recessive traits, and the incidence of CCDs is much more prevalent in regions where consanguineous marriage is part of the culture. Patients with SBS are born with a substantial shortening of the small intestine, to a mean length of 50 cm, compared with a normal length at birth of 190-280 cm. This could be due to either a genetic disorder or pre-mature birth. In regions such as the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, both CDD and SBS occur with much higher incidence. Napo has recently visited with medical centers in this region. “With the early and extreme morbidity and mortality suffered by CDD and SBS patients, we welcome the opportunity to participate in the investigation of a novel drug to address the devastating diarrhea and dehydration caused by these lifelong diseases for which there is currently no available treatment except parenteral nutrition, and help limit the suffering of patients and their family members,” stated Dr. Mohamad Miqdady, Chief of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology & Nutrition at Sheikh Khalifa Medical City in Abu Dhabi. Dr. Chaturvedi is also providing oversight for development of Napo’s proprietary second-generation anti-secretory agent for cholera—a possible indication that may present Napo with an opportunity for an FDA tropical disease priority review voucher. Under FDA regulations, the sponsor of a human drug application for a qualified tropical disease may be eligible for a priority review voucher, which can be used to obtain priority review for any subsequent human drug application submitted to FDA. These vouchers, which are transferable, have recently sold for $125 million - $350 million, and provide an immediate return on investment for the development of a novel product for important indications. “I am thrilled to be supporting Napo’s and Jaguar’s shared mission to change the global standard of care for gastrointestinal diseases,” stated Dr. Chaturvedi. “I look forward to evaluating potential multiple follow-on gastrointestinal indications for Mytesi®, and leveraging the collective expertise of our team in advancing drug development through innovative approaches such as the adaptive clinical trial design that led to the FDA approval of Mytesi® for its current indication of treating noninfectious diarrhea in adults with HIV/AIDS on antiretroviral therapy.” “We are very pleased that Dr. Chaturvedi has returned to support these principal development activities,” Conte commented, “which, if approved, will complement our current sales of Mytesi® for noninfectious diarrhea in adult HIV/AIDS patients on antiretroviral therapy. We consider Mytesi® a ‘pipeline within a product’, and Napo has global unencumbered rights to this novel first-in-class anti-secretory agent with multiple potential follow-on indications.” Dr. Chaturvedi has co-founded and led multiple biotech enterprises including Scion, IndUS and Oceanyx, and has served as the CEO or CSO for Scion, IndUS, Napo, and Oceanyx and is the CEO for Pivot Pharmaceuticals. Over his career, Dr. Chaturvedi led discovery and/or development activities for several new chemical entities (NCEs) and has participated in the discovery and/or development of novel drugs for treatment of HIV, hepatitis C, epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease. Earlier in his career, Dr. Chaturvedi was head of lead evaluation at Vertex Pharmaceuticals and was in the preclinical group at Alkermes. He started his career in the product development group at Parke-Davis/Warner-Lambert Company (now Pfizer). Dr. Chaturvedi holds a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from West Virginia University and a Bachelor's in Pharmacy from the University of Bombay. The proposed merger of Jaguar and Napo remains subject to customary conditions to closing. Upon the consummation of the merger, Jaguar’s name will be changed to Jaguar Health, Inc., and Napo will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jaguar, focused on human health. Subject to the conditions to closing, the proposed merger is expected to close by the end of July 2017. Mytesi® (crofelemer) is an antidiarrheal indicated for the symptomatic relief of noninfectious diarrhea in adult patients with HIV/AIDS on antiretroviral therapy (ART). Mytesi® is not indicated for the treatment of infectious diarrhea. Rule out infectious etiologies of diarrhea before starting Mytesi®. If infectious etiologies are not considered, there is a risk that patients with infectious etiologies will not receive the appropriate therapy and their disease may worsen. In clinical studies, the most common adverse reactions occurring at a rate greater than placebo were upper respiratory tract infection (5.7%), bronchitis (3.9%), cough (3.5%), flatulence (3.1%), and increased bilirubin (3.1%). More information and complete Prescribing Information are available at Mytesi.com. Crofelemer, the active ingredient in Mytesi®, is a botanical (plant-based) drug extracted and purified from the red bark sap of the medicinal Croton lechleri tree in the Amazon rainforest. Napo has established a sustainable harvesting program for crofelemer to ensure a high degree of quality and ecological integrity. San Francisco-based Napo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. focuses on the development and commercialization of proprietary pharmaceuticals for the global marketplace in collaboration with local partners.
