Step 8. Specify Target RTO and RPO

At the RTO & RPO step of the wizard, define your Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) for the plan:

  • The Target RPO defines the maximum acceptable period of data loss.
  • The Target RTO represents the amount of time it should take to recover from an incident.


If you choose to perform malware scan while running the plan, Orchestrator will scan one disk per repository mount server at a time. This process may take a while, affecting the plan RTO.

RTO and RPO performance will be recorded in the Plan Readiness Check and Plan Execution reports, and you will be able to track the achieved RTO and RPO objectives for each plan on the Home Page Dashboard.
