Netix was founded in 1989 by S. Tao Yeh. Before Win95 was introduced, Netix focused on the development of TCP/IP based connectivity/communications software between the old DOS based PC and Unix systems. From 1995 to Y2K, Netix was an ISP service provider in the Orange County area mainly focusing on the bare-metal hosting and application/storage hosting. From Y2K to 2004, Netix focused on the level II support for enterprise computing and networking systems. Since 2004, Netix has become more diversified with increased exposure to other non-tech areas.
