Samsung invests, shares in Fusion-io

updated 10:50 am EDT, Tue October 20, 2009

Samsung and Fusion-io team on SSDs

Samsung today invested an unspecified amount of money into relatively young storage maker Fusion-io as part of a larger partnership. The deal gives Fusion-io a safer position to develop its lineup but will also see it and Samsung co-develop new solid-state drive technology. The smaller of the two will also get better access to Samsung's flash memory.

Fusion-io primarily creates PCI Express-based drives that combine multiple SSDs to both create large amounts of space and to provide extremely high transfer speeds both for pro and gamer drives. It gained additional attention earlier this year when Steve Wozniak joined in as the company's Chief Scientist.
