Recovery Point Objective RPO

Defines the maximum tolerable data loss that is acceptable in a disaster situation. For example, if a disaster occurs and the Bunker node has two hours of data and it is okay for you to replay only one hour of data then the RPO is one hour. If no data loss is acceptable then the RPO is zero.
