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.
