An archive backup copies the database file and the transaction log into one or more files, typically on a tape drive. An image backup makes a copy of the database files and/or the transaction log, each as separate files. You can only perform archive backups as server-side backups.
You should use an archive backup if you are backing up directly to tape. Otherwise, an image backup should be used because image backups are easier to restore.
