You can create folders in which to organize protection groups.

Organizing protection groups into folders is useful if you have many protection groups. You can limit the access to protection groups by placing them in folders and assigning different permissions to the folders for different users or groups. For information about how to assign permissions to folders, see Assign Site Recovery Manager Roles and Permissions.
