New ioDriveModels Deliver Up to 1.28 TB, Increasing Memory Capacity and I/O Rates for Performance Intensive Applications

SALT LAKE CITY, May 10, 2011 - /Interop Booth #1459/ — Fusion-io, pioneer of a next generation storage
memory platform for shared data decentralization, announced today that it has
extended its OEM alliance with Dell to offer additional ioDrive models. In
addition, Dell has now qualified Fusion's ioMemory technology for five of its
PowerEdge servers.

"As our customers continue to experience exponential data growth, the
ability to place their most active data on servers with shared data
decentralization becomes increasingly appealing for speeding up applications
and enterprise database performance," said Brian Payne, executive director of
Platform Marketing for Dell's PowerEdge Server portfolio. "With storage
memory products from Fusion-io, Dell PowerEdge customers will be able to
engineer a more powerful and flexible data infrastructure to meet their
growing data needs."

Through the expanded OEM relationship, Dell will offer three additional
ioMemory-based products - the 320 and 640 GB ioDrives and the 1.28 TB ioDrive
Duo - in addition to its previous ioDrive products.

Dell will also extend its server platform support to include the Dell
PowerEdge R610 and the Dell PowerEdge R910 Rack Server. Dell PowerEdge
Servers feature increased memory capacity and I/O rates for performance
intensive applications in demanding environments. The Dell PowerEdge server
portfolio offers a range of options with easy configuration, powerful
open-standard systems management, scalable storage and flexible services
designed to serve as the foundation of a reliable and efficient

"Recognizing that shared data decentralization gives enterprises a
competitive advantage by speeding up access to their most active data, Dell's
innovative team is giving PowerEdge server customers even more options to
increase application performance while reducing infrastructure and operating
costs," said Gary Orenstein, Vice President of Products for Fusion-io.
"Fusion ioDrives provide PowerEdge servers with native access to an
organization's most critical data assets, and we are proud that Dell has
qualified Fusion technology as a solution its customers can trust when
engineering solutions that enhance the capabilities of their

About Fusion-io

Fusion-io has pioneered a next generation storage memory platform for
shared data decentralization that significantly improves the processing
capabilities within a datacenter by relocating process-critical, or "active",
data from centralized storage to the server where it is being processed, a
methodology referred to as data decentralization. Fusion's integrated
hardware and software solutions leverage non-volatile memory to significantly
increase datacenter efficiency and offers enterprise grade performance,
reliability, availability and manageability. Fusion'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. Fusion's platform enables enterprises to increase the
utilization, performance and efficiency of their datacenter resources and
extract greater value from their information assets.
