The driver for this device is included within the Fusion-io binary driver package, which can be downloaded directly from the Fusion-io support website at http://support.fusionio.com.

A Linux kernel module, or device driver, for Fusion-io flash storage devices has not yet been provided under an Open Source license, such as the GPL, to enable Red Hat to distribute it with the Linux Kernel. Therefore, it must be obtained as a third-party driver from the vendor for use within Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Red Hat Enterprise OpenStack Platform.

While Red Hat is unable to supply these drivers directly, we will fully support the underlying installation on which these drivers are used. Support for third party applications developed around the Fusion-io ioDrive and dedicated driver is not implied.

Please refer to the following for further details on how Red Hat supports third-party software and other support policies:
