IT Disaster Recovery Principles
A recovery time objective (RTO) refers to the maximum length of time that a system can be down after a failure or disaster occurs before the company is negatively impacted by the downtime.
A recovery point objective (RPO) specifies a point in time that data must be recovered and backed up. The RPO determines the minimum frequency and at which intervals backups need to occur, whether every hour or every 5 minutes.
