Health Canada Chooses a PWGSC Server Monitoring Service Powered by NUVO-Helps Department Assure Availability of Government Service to the Public

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 9, 2005) - NUVO Network Management Inc. (TSX VENTURE:NVO), a leading managed services provider for solutions that Maximize IT® availability and performance, today announced that it has been selected by Health Canada to monitor its mission-critical servers to maximize uptime.

"Health Canada relies on its servers to provide a host of applications, both internal and external, including web servers that support information and government services to the Canadian public," says Don Daniels, Product Manager within Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) who manages network management contracting services for government departments. "Health Canada selected the PWGSC service offering because NUVO's operations centre, backed by expert help desk personnel and services, enables them to solve problems for their network and servers. As a result, they can offload responsibility from infrastructure management and instead focus on developing value-added services for department staff and the public."

"NUVO monitors 83 servers for Health Canada 24x7," says Phil Weaver, President and CEO. "We alert Health Canada to potential problems before they impact service operation and provide performance analytics on server operations for capacity planning and operations management. For example, if server memory approaches capacity, we warn the network managers so they can take corrective action before the server crashes or results in data corruption. In a nutshell, we tell them where there's going to be a problem before there actually is one, so they can maximize uptime."

NUVO's MAXmonitor service delivers long-term, sustainable benefits,
providing cost-effective, real-time tools to:

- Improve service availability
- Increase application performance
- Reduce or eliminate capital expenditure
- Deliver rapid report generation and analysis to the network
