Fusion-io founder Flynn flies again with new storage upstart

Joins forces with departed Fusion-io CMO

Reducing the cost and complexity of web vulnerability management

Ousted Fusion-io co-founder David Flynn has a new gig: startup Primary Data.

And the chief marketing officer? Why, none other than Rick White, co-founder of Fusion-io and its chief marketing officer when he resigned along with Flynn earlier this year. He started at Primary Data in June.

The news is reported by the Wall Street Journal. Apparently Primary Data software will pool storage directly attached to servers, as well as storage networked to servers, into an entity offering a unified file directory namespace.

This resource will be usable by data centre servers and external ones in the cloud, which El Reg's storage desk thinks is an interesting idea.

Flynn also told the Wall Street Journal that the Fusion-io board asked him to resign “and I did”, which suggests he was ousted in a boardroom coup.

Primary Data has not yet raised any external funding. According to the WSJ report, it is currently relying on technology from other companies it has acquired.

Fusion-io's new CEO, Shane Robison, is aware of what Flynn and White are doing and is reportedly not concerned about it. ®
