Traded in other countries:3FI.Germany
Fusion-io, Inc. was incorporated in December 2005 as Canvas Technologies, Inc., a Nevada corporation. In June 2006, it changed its name to Fusion Multisystems, Inc. In June 2010, it changed its name to Fusion-io, Inc. and reincorporated as a Delaware corporation. The Company is a provider of data-centric computing solutions - a combination of hardware and software that places data closer to processing, resulting in dramatic improvements in both performance and efficiency. The Company's integrated hardware and software solutions leverages non-volatile memory to significantly increase datacenter efficiency and offers enterprise grade performance, reliability, availability and manageability. It sells its solutions through its global direct sales force, OEMs, including Dell, HP and IBM, and other channel partners. The Company's data decentralization platform includes its ioMemory hardware, VSL virtualization software; directCache automated data-tiering software and ioSphere platform management software. The Company's data decentralization platform can transform legacy architectures into next generation datacenters and allows enterprises to consolidate or significantly reduce complex and expensive high performance storage, high performance networking, and memory-rich servers. The Company's purpose-built storage memory platform integrates its industry standard server-based hardware with its virtualization software, and incorporates its automated data-tiering and platform management software. The Company's ioMemory hardware uses non-volatile memory to create a high capacity memory tier with fast access rates in a small form factor. The Company's VSL software virtualizes the ioMemory hardware and allows the decentralization of active data from centralized storage systems into the server. The Company's recently introduced directCache software provides automated data-tiering, which accelerates access to active data from centralized storage. Its recently introduced ioSphere management software centrally configures monitors and manages all of its distributed ioMemory hardware and software. Its ioDrive product families are a line of PCIe standard form-factor storage memory platforms that combine one or more ioMemory modules with its VSL software. It classifies its ioDrive products based on capacity, latency, bandwidth and input / output operations per second, or IOPS. Its directCache software extends its ioMemory platform and permits interoperability with traditional direct-attached, network-attached, storage area network attached and appliance attached backend storage systems. This software is designed to intelligently identify copy and cache to ioMemory the most frequently accessed blocks of storage data from very large-scale backend datasets. ioSphere is a suite of management software purpose-built for its storage memory infrastructure and designed around its data decentralization platform. ioSphere software is accessible through a graphic
