Flynn told ZDnet - "Fusion-io CEO David Flynn said the ID7 acquisition will give the company new engineers and allow it to boost efficiency in data centers. Fusion-io said that ID7 will continue to contribute to SCST and develop software for Flash data centers."
According to Seeking Alpha: "We’re aiming ... to provide high-end storage functionality on commodity hardware," says CEO David Flynn"

Just bought a commodity software company.
Out of ideas so he bought some engineers with ideas.
He thinks commodity HW+SW is the solution to performance and profit. I disagree. Flash storage needs to be tuned.
By the way, no one believes his ridiculous cache benchmarks with 64k one time read. That's just not how data is used in the real world.
