SecondSite Pricing Scenarios

SecondSite makes it easy, with simple pricing and simple plans.

It's $99 per VM, per month with one FREE failover test every 90-days* (this test is limited to 24 hours and does not roll over if not used). Additional tests during this 90-day timeframe will be charged at $1000 AUD for resources used.

Failing over into Zettagrid's cloud will result in charges for the resources you use as if you were any other customer already running production workloads in our cloud. We have a useful price calculator to help you with working out what that might be.

SecondSite is designed for protecting real world VMs and as such has a fair use policy governing its usage. Your protected VMs need to be under 1TB per VM across all VMs. If the total storage of your single protected VM is terabytes greater than 1TB then we would charge for an additional VM.

All pricing scenarios below are GST inclusive and represent RRP.

Scenario 1

If a customer has three VMs, the monthly total will be $297 for the full solution ($99 per VM, per month).

Scenario 2

If a customer has 37 VMs, the monthly total will be $3,663 for the full solution.

Scenario 3

A customer has 12 VMs and wishes to test twice per year. The monthly total will be $1,188, if the testing is completed once every 90-days then the test will be free, however, if you choose to test twice during the 90-day period, you will be charged a fee of $1000 AUD for resources.

Scenario 4

A customer has five VMs but has a SAN failure and needs to run in Zettagrid's cloud while the production SAN is replaced. Adding up the five VMs means a total of 20GHz, 12Gb RAM and 3TB storage.

This customer can expect $495 per month with an additional one-off cost of $1,093.50 for the month running of resources consumed in Zettagrid's cloud.

Scenario 5

A customer has five VMs and, based on the WAN sizing tool, they also require a dedicated link.

This customer can expect $495 per month for SecondSite™ and, based on this customer's link requirements, an additional $442 per month. As a result, this customer's total monthly cost will be $937.

Scenario 6

A customer has five VMs, four of those VMs are 250GB and one VM is 4.8TB.

Due to the large use of data, nine licenses are required, which means this customer can expect a monthly cost of $891.
