Samsung invests in Fusion-io

'Millions' put into storage start-up

Samsung has invested in Fusion-io, deepening the relationship between two significant players in the fast-growing flash-storage business.

Fusion-io president and chief technology officer David Flynn says Samsung has put "millions" into the flash storage start-up, though he declined to give a more specific figure. Also as part of the announced deal, the two companies will jointly evaluate technology for new applications of solid-state storage.

Fusion-io specialises in storage devices that plug directly into PCI Express (PCIe) slots in servers, rather than SSDs (solid-state drives) that use traditional HDD form factors or interfaces.

Samsung is the primary supplier of flash for Fusion-io's products, though Fusion-io has qualified other vendors' chips.
