Computing Div. 1, Personal Systems Business Unit, Fujitsu. “SanDisk’s

performance and design features that will make the LIFEBOOK a successful
entrant in the Ultrabook market.”
The SanDisk iSSD device and Condusiv caching software used in the

storage capacities of HDDs. SanDisk holds an exclusive license to sell
ExpressCache software as a standalone product and in combination with
its SSD-based storage solutions.

category, and the SanDisk iSSD helps deliver a fast, enjoyable user
experience in these mobile computing products,” said Kevin Conley,
senior vice president and general manager, Client Storage Solutions,
SanDisk. “SSD-based cache storage solutions provide performance
advantages at reasonable cost, which should help drive market adoption
for the Ultrabook category.”
