Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has joined a server flash memory specialist as chief scientist.

Wozniak was already on the advisory board of three-year-old firm Fusion-io, but he has now taken a full-time role at the firm to help develop server technology that is expected to take off at large firms.

Wozniak said, "I have a pretty quiet life, and I like to watch technology evolve. In this case, I like the people and the product, and I said I would like some greater involvement."

Fusion-io packs flash chips together to form a module that slides into certain server slots. This gives the main computing processor quick access to data stored on the flash chips.

In traditional server systems, the microprocessor is connected to the data on a storage system through more indirect links, meaning a slower performance.

Companies running large databases are expected to eventually turn to companies such Fusion-io which can bring the data closer to computational chips.

Dell has invested in Fusion-io, and the firm has sales channel arrangements with Dell, Hewlett-Packard and IBM.
