Recovery Time Objective (RTO)

What is a recovery time objective (RTO)?

One of the major components of any cloud-based disaster recovery plan is Recovery Time Objective, or simply “RTO.” Alongside RPO (Recovery Point Objective), RTO is a key metric that all organizations must consider when developing an appropriate disaster recovery plan. RTO is measured in terms of how long a business can survive following a disaster before operations can be restored to normal.

For example, an enterprise-level organization might have an RTO of 24 hours several years ago, meaning their business can successfully maintain operations for at least 24 hours without access to its normal data and infrastructure before incurring irreparable harm.
