Company Introduction

Fusion-io is the pioneer of a new storage memory platform that
significantly improves the processing capabilities within a data
center by moving process-critical or active data closer to the CPU
where it is processed. Called shared data decentralization, this
significantly reduces latency while increasing data center efficiency.
Fusion’s integrated hardware and software solutions leverage
non-volatile memory for enterprise-grade performance, reliability,
availability and manageability.

Founded in 2006 by a management team with experience in transaction
processing, high-performance networking, storage, superclusters, and
computing and image processing, Fusion-io recognized that mechanical
storage architectures do not keep pace with advances in digital
processing power. This meant that despite major advances in
technology, data processing was limited to the speed of legacy storage
infrastructures. Without a solution designed to maximize their
capabilities, modern CPUs sit idle while they wait for data to

Fusion-io solves the data supply problem with a new purpose-built
solution. By combining hardware and software to develop a reliable
storage memory platform, Fusion-io gives servers native access to data
to accelerate enterprise databases and applications. This allows
enterprises to significantly reduce complex and expensive high
performance storage, high performance networking, and memory-rich
servers. In addition to accelerating performance, Fusion’s storage
memory platform also reduces energy consumption and total cost of
