Fusion-io was named one of the most promising companies in the United States by the Wall S treet Journal in 2010; Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is Fusion-io’s Chief Scientist, and Michael Dell was an early investor. Now a public company with a market cap over $2B USD, Fusion-io products are used by innovative leaders like Facebook, Apple, and Salesforce.com.

Nicolas Erdody , Open Parallel's Director and Founder notes that "Open Parallel's global team of specialists have many years of experience in parallel programming and have developed strong networks within the development, academic and research communities. Given this 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."
Mr. Erdody said that "Open Parallel plans to be the natural destination of companies both large and small that need exceptional talent to explore, develop, and test radical multicore and parallel computing ideas."
