Large corporate and government institutions have had disaster recovery plans and policies in place for years.

Small and medium businesses can now implement disaster recovery plans and processes due to lower cost of technology and the emergence of cloud solutions and disaster recovery as a service DRaaS.

A vital question every organisation needs to be able to answer is ‘what are the organisation Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and what is the Recovery Time Objective (RTO)’?

Recovery Point Objective

A Recovery Point Objective (RPO) is defined by business continuity planning. It is the maximum targeted period in which data (transactions) might be lost from an IT service due to a major incident. 

If RPO is measured in minutes (or even a few hours), then in practice, off-site mirrored backups must be continuously maintained; a daily off-site backup on tape will not suffice.

Recovery Point Objective

The Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is the targeted duration of time and a service level within which a business process must be restored after a disaster (or disruption) in order to avoid unacceptable consequences associated with a break in business continuity.
