Intel to Acquire Dayna Communications

Send Article to a Friend

Intel to Acquire Dayna Communications -- Last week, Intel announced an agreement to acquire Dayna Communications, the Salt Lake City company that has produced popular networking and storage peripherals (remember the DaynaFile that read 5.25" DOS disks?) for Macintosh and Windows computers for over a decade. Dayna's product line focuses on the needs of small business and educational sites and will become a key part of Intel's strategy for the small business networking market. An Intel spokeswoman said that Intel and Dayna will be evaluating Dayna's entire product line, including Mac products, to determine the best mix of products for 1998. [MHA]
