How can I utilise the DC Two Image Manager Services?

1 - Shared Image Manager Server - from $60 (ex GST) per server per month including first 100GB of Cloud Storage.

If you only have a single server or a small deployment, utilising our shared Image Manager server may be the most cost effective choice.

You will be given access to our Cloud Storage for Shadow Protect to upload all of your incremental backup data files to and the DC Two Image Manager Server will consolidate all of the individual incremental backup files into a single backup file.

2 - Dedicated Private Image Manager Server - from $167 (ex GST) per month plus storage needed

If you have several servers that require protection from either the same site, or perhaps you are an IT service provider with several individual customer all using Shadow Protect, then a Dedicated Private Image Manager Server would be for you.

By combining the individual server requirements onto the one account, the Private Image Manager instantly becomes the best choice while giving you consolidated costs, optimised services and a much greater level of control and management compared to utilising the Shared Image Manager Server.
