A disaster recovery plan for an organization’s financial system specifies that the recovery point
objective (RPO) is no data loss and the recovery time objective (RTO) is 72 hours. Which of the
following is the MOST cost-effective solution?

A.
A hot site that can be operational in eight hours with asynchronous backup of the transaction logs

B.
Distributed database systems in multiple locations updated asynchronously

C.
Synchronous updates of the data and standby active systems in a hot site

D.
Synchronous remote copy of the data in a warm site that can be operational in 48 hours

Explanation:
The synchronous copy of the storage achieves the RPO objective and a warm site operational in
48 hours meets the required RTO. Asynchronous updates of the database in distributed locations
do not meet the RPO. Synchronous updates of the data and standby active systems in a hot site
meet the RPO and RTO requirements but are more costly than a warm site solution.
