Failed RTOs and RPOs
A key finding was that recovery time objectives and recovery point objectives (RTOs and RPOs) are not being achieved. That is, there is an “availability gap” and a “protection gap”, according to the Veeam view of the survey results.
When asked whether their organisation can recover applications as quickly as service-level agreements (SLAs) demand and whether they can restore all data that SLAs specify, the answers were resoundingly that they couldn’t.
Nine out of 10 (90%) said they could not recover data as quickly as they wanted, and 89% said they couldn’t recover all they wanted.
