U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, FBI, Department of Homeland Security and Other Federal Agencies Will Continue to Be Able to Procure from DNF
HAYWARD, Ca. – February 6, 2008 – Dynamic Network Factory, Inc. (DNF), a leading maker of high-performance network attached storage (NAS), storage area networks (SANs), RAID and iSCSI systems, today announced that it has been awarded an extension through 2012 on its General Services Administration (GSA) schedule contract, number GS-35F-0153N, enabling civilian, U.S. defense and other federal agencies to continue to procure DNF’s industry-recognized data storage, service and consulting offerings.
The extension applies for the first time to StoneFly, Inc. (www.stonefly.com ), a wholly owned DNF subsidiary and leading supplier of integrated IP storage area network (SAN) systems. It also allows several other DNF business units to continue their GSA programs, including DNF Storage (www.dnfstorage.com ) and DNF Defense (www.dnfdefense.com ), which specifically supports government and military applications with ruggedized workstation, storage and server solutions.
DNF was first awarded a GSA contract in 2002. Since that time, the company has supplied storage systems to the U.S. Army, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), the Navy Expeditionary Medical Support Command (NEMSCOM), the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and various other federal agencies.
“The U.S. federal government continues to represent one of DNF’s strongest markets,” said Mo Tahmasebi, CEO of DNF. “We’re very pleased that the many federal agencies that turn to us for storage expertise have expressed confidence in our proven solutions for strengthening their storage environments. We look forward to continuing to serve their storage needs.”
Inclusion in the GSA schedule allows government and federal agencies and their civilian suppliers to procure a range of DNF products and services through a simplified process and with favorable pricing.
