DNF carries a variety of products, ranging from network attached storage, direct attached storage solutions and IP SAN solutions, to assist companies in meeting their mission-critical storage needs with cost-effective, high performance storage equipment. DNF started as a U.S. subsidiary of the publicly-traded Japanese IT conglomerate, CSK Electronics, in 1989. In 1998, the company refined its strategy and began to focus the hardware group on storage solutions. Within a year, DNF’s rapid growth resulted in its emergence as an independent, privately-held spin-off. In 2006, DNF completed its acquisition of StoneFly Networks, an iSCSI storage pioneer and developer of complete, turnkey IP SAN solutions.

Nibbles from Storage History

We started selling online ads for RAID systems in 1997 - and the first company to take it up was DEC (before they got acquired by Compaq).

Due to the popularity of storage in our Sun SPARC publication - we spun off as a separate brand in 1998. That was a good move because 3 years later - in 2001 - the Sun market stalled.

The banner ad on the right, is one which Dynamic Network Factory ran here on the mouse site in March 1999.
