Disaster Recovery - Critical Metrics

Flicking through Information Week, I came across a couple of obscurely named but absolutely critical metrics to use when consider disaster recovery: Recovery Point Objective (RPO) identifies how much data can be acceptably lost. Recovery Time Objective (RTO) identifies the acceptable time for a system to be done (or the time it takes to bring it back up). Clearly, such metrics require extensive discussion and explanations between the businesses and IT.  Both are functions of cost and it would be interesting a useful to ask for a plot of these against cost before making any decisions. You can find the full, short article by Howard Marks at Practical Disaster Recovery
