Fusion-io partners with Quanta, eyes Open Compute bandwagon
Fusion-io, a company focused on flash storage in the data center, said its products will be integrated into Quanta Rackgo X systems, which are stripped down servers. The news comes out of the Open Compute Project (OCP) conference in San Jose. For Fusion-io, the Quanta deal means more distribution. The move also shows how white-box manufacturers, contractors that make servers and PCs for other companies, have become players in the data center. In other words, movements like OCP mean so-called “vanity free” servers are gaining ground.
