Derek Gates
Senior Systems Administrator

Since Derek joined Catalysis in 2001, he's been in charge of installing, managing, and supporting all the backend equipment that keeps the office running at an optimal level each day. During his tenure, Derek has seen the back end infrastructure grow from seven servers to over 65 and has brought system monitoring and alerting, SQL clustering, web server load balancing, optimized backup systems, and Metro Fiber internet connectivity to Catalysis. Prior to Catalysis, he led the implementation of a server-wide migration and consolidation from Novell to Windows NT at Eddie Bauer's corporate office. He has also worked for the City of Seattle Mayor's Office and was on the Microsoft Windows 95 test team. A Southern California transplant, Derek can often be found attending cooking classes, playing tennis, biking, boating, or entertaining friends with his wife, Deborah and his best friend Cooper.
