Daily backups ensure the ability to recover from corruptions, human error, malware, and ransomware. Daily backups meet a 24-hour recovery point objective (RPO), limiting total data loss to one day or less.
Typically, organizations need an additional tier of data protection for their applications. For transactional data, zero data loss is the optimal RPO target. Synchronous local replication and asynchronous offsite replication are valuable tools for delivering a complete data protection solution.
