Meet Nick Peelman – Our new Systems Administrator
My name is Nick Peelman and I am the latest addition to the team here at Data Cave! I took up the Systems Administrator position the end of October 2015. The bulk of my focus is on keeping our infrastucture up to date, including our monitoring systems and customer network, and I look forward to sharing some of the improvements we are planning to undertake in the future. The remainder of my time will be spent assisting the rest of the team with the continuous improvement we are all dedicated to here at Data Cave. Whether it’s our network infrastucture, our security systems, or our power protection and distribution, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our ability to keep your servers and data online and secure.
Prior to joining Data Cave, I was a Linux systems administrator in Bloomington, Indiana. Before that I did stints in app development (iOS, Ruby on Rails, and Java), and Windows systems administration. I have a passion for problem solving and crafting solutions, and my experience in development has made me a much stronger sysadmin.
My wife Kelly and I live in Seymour, where she works as a veterinarian. We both graduted from Purdue, and we have a Shih-Tzu named Chase along with two cats, Kenzie and Harrison. I divide my free time between family & friends, video games, and tinkering. Much like my counterpart Patrick, I switched over to Apple’s ecosystem in 2004 and haven’t looked back.
I’m looking forward to continuing the streak of excellence set forth by the Data Cave team so far, as well as meeting and working with our customers to ensure they are happy with and impressed by what Data Cave has to offer.
