I am looking to get an external company to implement a DR plan for us, as currently we backup on a daily basis to tape. We have a small setup which includes 2 esx hosts running 5 virtual machines as follows:
Blackberry enterprise server
They have provided the attached file for me to complete before they can forward a quote. Whilst I understand what is being asked in the form i am not entirey sure on the decision making process for deciding on the RPO and RTO. Obviously in an ideal world RPO would be a matter of minutes but I am not sure on how to make a realistic expectation of what we would like to achieve.
Any thoughts and the decision making process or on realistic data loss would be much appreciated.
Alos the initial proposal has been to use vizioncore VReplicatior. Any views on this as a product would alos be appreciated.
