Virtual data centre start-up DC Two has launched services from racks in Vocus' Perth IX facility, ahead of the opening of its own data centre later this year. The new project is being run by former HPC Datacentres managing director Justin Thomas. Thomas said that DC Two would "co-manage" back-ups on the clients' behalf. It offers Storage Craft 'Shadow Protect' based back-up as an extra add-on.
DC Two will not deal direct with end customers. Rather, it will sell to distributors, IT systems integrators and resellers. The company plans to bring its own data centre online in "mid 2012".
