Hewlett-Packard and startup Fusion-io Wednesday announced plans to jointly enable the latter’s solid-state memory technology to run across HP server products.
The joint effort was announced at the HP Technology Forum & Expo 2008 in Las Vegas. The collaboration will allow a version of Fusion-io’s ioDrive NAND product to be plugged into HP server PCI-express slots to add as much as 640GB of flash storage capacity on a single card, said David Flynn, CTO of Salt Lake City-based Fusion-io. He said the capacity will be increased to 1.28TB in 2009.
Flynn declined to disclose pricing plans, product availability dates or packaging information for the joint offering.
