It's more than just backing up data...

It's more than just backing up data... Business continuity, and even the IT disaster recovery portion, is a lot more than simply "backing my data up to the cloud" An interesting discussion with a prospect: "…we don’t need a continuity plan, all of our data is backed up to the cloud". "Interesting, not a bad solution. How long will it take to recover all your data, over your current internet connection?". "Hmmm, haven’t thought about that…". "Based on what you’ve told me, you’re looking at roughly 2-3 days. Can your business operate that long without critical data?" …silence… Business continuity, and even the IT disaster recovery portion, is a lot more than simply 'backing my data up to the cloud".

Huber Advisors Becomes Cloud Desktop Provider with DirectCloud

August 26, 2015

We are pleased to announce that Huber Advisors of St. Paul, MN has joined the DirectCloud partner family to offer our signature cloud desktop, WebTop. This partnership empowers Huber Advisors to enable customers to embrace the cloud and take advantage of the mobility and flexibility inherent in a virtual desktop.

Huber Advisors is well known around the country for delivering innovative managed services and reliable technology solutions that help companies reach key business goals and implement technology strategies. The new partnership with DirectCloud enables Huber Advisors to provide customers anytime access to their desktop, data, and programs from any device, anywhere. Huber Advisors is part of a national network of select business partners that have exclusive rights to sell and distribute DirectCloud’s WebTop.

“Our core business is business continuity planning, helping businesses manage and mitigate operational risk. Time and time again, we run into companies that focus on recovering their servers, but regularly overlook desktop recovery”, explains Tim Elemes, President of Huber Advisors. “With WebTop, not only can we offer a solution for recovering desktop services, our clients are able to access their desktop from any device, anywhere and anytime. It’s hard to beat that level of recoverability for your end users.”

WebTop replaces the on-site servers, software upgrades, and daily end point management traditional within small and medium-sized businesses with a streamlined, “thin” cloud desktop, moving businesses from a CAPEX to OPEX business model, while reducing the cost of both. Backed by an expert team of cloud engineers, migration to the cloud is efficient and easy. We call WebTop the “follow-me” desktop because it provides a continuous experience across devices and is customized to and by each individual user. With a few clicks from virtually any browser, users have access to contacts, calendars, email, files, applications, collaboration, news, communications, and more. Having all this data and communication readily available allows companies to be more agile and competitive in an increasingly technological world, ultimately providing a quick return on investment.

“We designed DirectCloud’s WebTop to bring advanced, affordable capabilities to small and mid-size enterprises for the first time,” said Harry W. Kaminsky, Executive Director of DirectCloud. “Partners like Huber Advisors are critical to helping us deliver our complete line of virtual server and desktop systems in a way that meets customers’ unique, evolving needs. Together, we expect to expand the market for WebTop and cloud services that have previously been out of reach for many businesses.”

DirectCloud has no direct sales force, relying solely on our network of business partners to bring WebTop’s affordable solution to companies of all sizes. The DirectCloud Business Partner is at the heart of our innovative approach to doing business that pairs “People, Process, and Technology” to create mutually-beneficial relationships. At the core of our business is our Business Partner Program, specifically designed to encourage partner success through a range of sales, marketing, and technical tools and training. The shared goal is to help both the customer and business partner elevate their organization to the next level.

Established in 1997, Huber Advisors provides leadership, assistance, and direction in the development of business continuity and disaster recovery plans. Scenario-based simulations, as well as enhanced Train-The-Trainer (T3) sessions, are part of their solution, helping ensure corporate readiness in the event of an actual disaster. Through their approach to continuity planning, their smartphone application for plan deployment, and now WebTop to ensure desktop availability, Huber Advisors has the experience, expertise, and solutions, to help you and your company survive a disaster.
