MARKHAM, ONTARIO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 28, 2005 -- Net Integration Technologies Inc. (NITI), a developer of autonomic Linux®-based server operating system software, today announced the availability of its Nitix Application Edition server software. Nitix AE extends the autonomic self-healing, self-maintaining and self-tuning capabilities of Nitix with the Nitix Virtual Server, an environment dedicated to running third-party Linux applications. Nitix AE gives small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) a secure, reliable and cost effective server solution for IT infrastructure services and Linux applications.

"Nitix AE builds on Nitix' autonomic benefits, giving growing enterprises a way to ease IT support costs and deploy Linux applications," said Net Integration CEO Ozzy Papic. "Nitix AE for the first time allows these applications to be run in an autonomic environment."

SMBs seeking to exploit the secure and stable computing environment offered by Linux have faced steep learning curves and the need for extensive IT support. NITI's groundbreaking Nitix operating system addressed these issues by providing the first autonomic Linux environment.
