IBM’s Metro Global Mirror was designed to run on its own regardless of how far in time the data at the remote site is compared to the primary site. GDPS automation provides storage resiliency at the local site and failover capability to the remote site, but the customer is responsible for providing enough hardware infrastructure to meet their business requirements, including data recency at the remote site, in case of failure.

Monitoring performance data can provide assurance that business requirements are met and allow for proactive changes if issues arise.

This webinar will provide practical advice about monitoring the recovery point objective (RPO) and factors affecting RPO.
