RPO (Recovery Point Objective) is a key metric used in disaster recovery planning, along with the Recovery Time Objective. Whereas RTO measures the maximum amount of time that a company’s IT systems can be down after a disruptive event, RPO measures the maximum amount of data loss that is acceptable to the company during the recovery process.

Specifically, RPO is the point in time to which a company’s data must be restored after a disruptive event. For example, if a company has an RPO of four hours, it means that in the event of a system outage, the company’s data must be recovered to a point no more than four hours before the disruption occurred. This ensures that the company has access to the most recent and up-to-date data when resuming operations.
