Fusion-io Atomic Series: People, Partners and Product

Fusion-io has a legacy of great partnerships spanning nearly our entire company history. These relationships, based on years of investment from mutual technology collaborations, have created numerous opportunities to provide customers with solutions that unlock business potential.

Today, Fusion-io announced the Atomic Series, which is built on foundational technology achievements that offer speed without sacrifice. Utilizing the latest flash memory technology, Atomic Series provides the renowned reliability, performance and capacity that customers and partners expect from Fusion-io, while moving toward the all-flash datacenter.

The partner first approach of Fusion-io has allowed us to become the only flash memory provider to OEM products with every server vendor. These partnerships have prospered based on years of investment from both sides, and we are fortunate enough to have the strategic alliances in place as we continue to unlock new opportunity in the datacenter with application acceleration solutions.

In light of the Atomic Series announcement, we have compiled thoughts from various technology leaders that highlight why they have chosen to partner from Fusion-io.

“Partnering that we’ve had in the field has been just top notch and that really makes a difference in front of the customer because they’re going to want to understand what the solution looks like and how to apply it in their use case.

It’s going to be part of the landscape for a long time.” – KC Choi, Vice President, Global Presales Solutions Architecture, Hewlett-Packard
