"Fusion-io to Acquire IO Turbine"

 Combined Software Solution to Significantly Enhance Performance
 in Virtualized Environments
 Aug. 4, 2011

  "... today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement
   to acquire IO Turbine, Inc., a provider of caching solutions for
   virtual environments. Under terms of the agreement, Fusion-io will
   pay up to approximately $95 million, subject to purchase price
   adjustments, for all outstanding securities of IO Turbine."

  "... The integration of IO Turbine’s software into Fusion's platform
   will enable traditional storage infrastructures to keep up with
   the increasing demands of virtualized servers and expands Fusion's
   market opportunities to both new and existing customers." 
  "The IO Turbine software takes advantage of flash local to the server,
   delivering improved performance for virtualized workloads by holding
   data close to where it is used.  This approach avoids the need for
   expensive performance-oriented networked storage systems and memory
   appliances that struggle to deliver performance from the far end of
   a network, instead allowing enterprises to use cost optimized shared
   storage systems."
