When The Flood Waters Reach Your 6th Floor Manhattan Office

“I sure never thought they’d get flooded!” thought Ken Goldberg, President of NYC-based MSP MCG, Inc., when he sold his client Hoberman & Lesser a hybrid cloud-based backup, recovery and business continuity solution. But it’s a good thing he did.

Hoberman & Lesser is a high-end, high-touch CPA firm located in midtown Manhattan. As such, it depends heavily on IT to provide the very best service to its diverse clientele.

Without a significant IT department of its own, Hoberman & Lesser also relies on its MSP to keep its IT environment running smoothly and to make recommendations about how best to keep evolving that environment over time.

So it made sense for Goldberg to suggest in October 2014 that Hoberman & Lesser ensure its ability to keep serving its clients without interruption even in the event of a disaster by making the move to Datto. “We’ve experienced our share of disaster in New York City,” says Goldberg. “But with Datto SIRIS, you can quickly restore business operations anywhere in the world, by running off virtual machines and backed-up data. Given the nature of their business, it wouldn’t have made sense for Hoberman & Lesser not to have done it.”
