To be always up and running is the goal of all IT services, but no organization is immune to failures or outages. Business resilience depends on how quickly mission-critical services are restored once there is a disruption. Business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) practices rely on the intrinsic resiliency of highly available devices.
When there is storage-related downtime, it has a detrimental impact on application access and, in turn, operational continuity. This white paper will help you learn about three metrics that are instrumental to strategizing your BC/DR plan and objectives:
- Recovery Point Objective (RPO)
- Recovery Time Objective (RTO)
- Recovery Time Actual (RTA)
Understanding how these metrics work for your specific IT environment and business needs will help you set realistic objectives and realize faster recovery times.
