Delving Into Sourcefire and Fusion-io

- Wall Street has been concerned about the sustainability of gross margins, but new products and long-term NAND contracts should offset these questions.
- Flash-based storage/servers are just beginning to gain traction.
- Several competitors are rudderless -- for instance, OCZ Technology (OCZ) and STEC (STEC) have lost their CEOs.
- While Fusion-io is larger than Sourcefire, there is still a chance of a takeover -- Cisco, Oracle and EMC are trying to compete, but if they don't execute, they might be interested buyers down the road.
