Configuring the Recovery Point and Time for Reports

Updated

You can configure the Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) at the CommCell level, the Client Group level, and the Client level. RPO is the maximum number of hours that data can be lost during a service disruption and RTO is the maximum amount of time allowed to restore after a service disruption.
