LAS VEGAS, April 7, 2013

LAS VEGAS, April 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --National Association of Broadcasters
Tradeshow -- Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) today announced that it is collaborating
with global workstation leader HP to integrate the Fusion ioFX into the
award-winning HP Z820, Z620 and Z420 Workstations. The integrated solutions
will offer ideal development platforms for professional artists in visual
effects, upstream exploration of oil and gas, digital content creation (DCC)
and computer-aided design (CAD). In addition, professionals interested in
adding the Fusion ioFX to their current HP Workstation can purchase the ioFX
as a custom integration component.

"I consider HP one of the best engineering companies in the world, so I'm
thrilled to see HP and Fusion-io working together to advance workstation
computing architectures," said Steve Wozniak, Fusion-io Chief Scientist. "The
Fusion ioFX brings the intelligence of the Fusion-io approach to HP's
incredible workstations, adding even more powerful application performance to
the precision engineering HP is known for around the world."

The Fusion ioFX provides unprecedented application acceleration to leading
workstation applications such as those from Adobe, Assimilate, and The
Foundry. The new solution will integrate the Fusion ioFX into the powerful HP
Z Workstations with Intel Xeon processors. The architecture is designed to
deliver an industry-leading platform for digital content creation applications
by moving beyond the performance limitations and bottlenecks of traditional
systems.

"HP is the workstation industry leader, and our customers demand to be the
first to get cutting edge solutions that deliver performance, reliability and
innovation," said Jeff Wood, vice president of product management, Commercial
Solutions Business Unit, HP. "Providing the Fusion ioFX in our high-end HP Z
Workstations will offer customers improved performance to tackle their most
challenging projects faster."

Tuned for sustained performance in multithreaded applications, the ioFX
enables artists to work on 2K, 4K and 5K content interactively, in full
resolution, as well as to manipulate stereoscopic content in real time. With
powerful throughput to maximize NVIDIA GPU processing, the ioFX will slash
application wait times in HP WZ Workstations to accelerate both the hardware
and software essential to professional digital content creation.

Visit HP Booth SL 9605 to see the Fusion ioFX live at NAB 2013. NAB Show
attendees can also see the ioFX in action at a number of leading Fusion-io
software and hardware Technology Alliance Program member booths. A complete
list of locations is available on the Fusion-io blog.
