Fusion-io (FIO), best known for its hardware, has introduced software that turns servers containing its flash memory modules into storage appliances. The software, called ION Data Accelerator, will be available in October, and is an attempt to better compete with flash appliance vendors such as Violin Memory and EMC-acquired XtremIO. Separately, Fusion-io claims top customer Facebook has migrated to flash-only storage solutions. (previous)
