How do I determine my RPO if my facility needs to be shut down for a period of time?

Paul Kirvan
My waste facility has to be shut down because of protesters. When the protesters leave, we will start the facility again. Where will the RPO be derived from?

A recovery point objective (RPO) is defined as the point in time preceding a disruption. That data must be available and correct to allow business functions to resume operations following the interruption. Usually, the recovery point objective is the point synchronized backup data is available. Assuming the disruption to your waste facility lasts a short period of time, say a few hours, and the data needed to restart the facility is synchronized and fully available, a one hour RPO should be sufficient for your needs.
