Consider this as an opportunity.

Switch to virtualization (hint: proxmox!) so you can still have a
single server, but you can split DC/DM.

Consider that a DC have little or no data within; my DC containers
(LXC) backup wheight less then 500MB.

And, anyway, also MS suggest to have DC/DM distinct role...
