Getting Know More About RPO and RTO

Downtime can be a big problem if you are running a critical business operation. It’s something that could happened at any time, might cause lost revenue and even your customer. Cybercrimes, power outage, fire, flood, or earthquake are just several events that may cause downtime and data loss. To have a sustainable business, you need to prepare yourself. One important thing to have is a solid Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) plan.

Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) are two important parameters that could define BCDR plan. So, what is RPO and RTO?


Recovery Point Objective (RPO) is focused on data and your company loss tolerance in relation to your data. RPO limits how far to roll back in time and defines the maximum allowable amount of lost data measured in time from a downtime to the last valid backup.

For instance, in financial business, one hour of data loss could be a disaster as they operate live transactions. Another example is when you are running an e-commerce/marketplace business, one hour you lose your data, you might be lost your orders and your potential customers. RPO is about how much of data that you willing to lose before it affects your work when your systems are crashes.

On the other hand, Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is focused on downtime and how long it takes to recover after a disaster happened. For example, in a ride hailing business, how long it takes for an app to back to normal after a downtime is critical because a minute you got downtime, you might missed a lot of orders from your customers and end up they will choose another ride hailing app to provide their needs.
