expertise, we look forward to collaborating with Fusion-io
on special projects in New Zealand.”
Noting the synergies between multicore processors and fast flash memory, Mr. Peek said "The challenges we are facing in meeting modern data demands are felt around the world, so we are very interested in discussing how data center innovation can help organizations in New Zealand as the country works towards becoming a centre of excellence in parallel programming."
