Gary Orenstein, Fusion-io's senior VP of Product says his company's purpose is to make the world's data go faster.

With Fusion-io's IoDrives and Ion Data Accelerator software, data center managers can build solid-state, flash-based storage arrays across physical and virtual servers more cost effectively.

Other Elevator Pitches featured: Appthority (Mobile Security), Crowdstrike (Enterprise Security), Cliqr (Cloud Management), Kontiki (Enterprise Video).
