SanDisk is looking to shore up its position in the flash storage market by purchasing Fusion-io for US$1.1 billion in an all-cash deal.
The acquisition, which was announced Monday, is expected to close in SanDisk's third fiscal quarter.
"Fusion-io will accelerate our efforts to enable the flash-transformed data center, helping companies better manage increasingly heavy data workloads at a lower total cost of ownership," SanDisk CEO Sanjay Mehrotra said in a statement.
Executives are expected to discuss the pending deal further during a conference call Monday.
