Steve Wozniak becomes chief scientist for Fusion-io

Posted on Friday, February 06 2009 @ 02:20:39 CET by


Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, is going back to work. NT Times reports Woz has accepted a position as chief scientist at solid state startup Fusion-io. A couple of months ago Fusion-io unveiled the ioXtreme, a PCI Express solid state disk with a capacity of 80GB that offers random read speeds of 700MB/s and random write speeds of 600MB/s.
In the early days of Apple, Mr. Wozniak stood out as one of Silicon Valley’s most creative engineers. He demonstrated a knack for elegant computer designs that made efficient use of components and combined many features into a cohesive package. At Fusion-io, Mr. Wozniak will be called upon for similar work, although this time with larger server computers and storage systems rather than PCs.

The three-year-old company, based in Salt Lake City, is expected to announce Thursday that Mr. Wozniak, already a member of Fusion-io’s advisory board, will become its chief scientist.

“I have a pretty quiet life, and I like to watch technology evolve,” Mr. Wozniak said in an interview. “In this case, I like the people and the product, and said I would like some greater involvement.”
