Network ElitesDRaaS service level objectives

Restore Point Objective (RPO)
The service will replicate at 5-minutes intervals and will retain 24-hour’s worth of recovery points. Recovery point retention may be increased, keeping in mind the replication interval may impact the storage requirements.

Restore Time Objective (RTO)
Network Elites will provide a 4-hour or less restore time for up to 50 servers. Additional servers may require additional time. Restore time is measured from client declaration of disaster to Network Elites validating the VM is accessible over the Network Elites-provided network components.
