While this is not a certainty by any means... the technology that supports virtualization and server-based web applications is clearly in the future. [Fusion-io] appears to be in a good spot. But there is significant competition and the market is VERY price sensitive. If they can make products that are a "good" value and afford to sell them and make a profit this company is positioned to do very well. There are alternative storage strategies and some are very low cost.
If you want market-beating returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Fusion-io may not be your top choice.
