Today Fusion-io announced a definitive agreement to acquire IO Turbine, Inc., a provider of caching solutions for virtual environments. Under terms of the agreement, Fusion-io will pay up to approximately $95 million, subject to purchase price adjustments.

Fusion-io is on a roll with revenue of $71.7 million for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2011, up 556% from $10.9 million for the same quarter of 2010.
