You can use the 5 minute Recovery Point Objective (RPO) if the target and the source sites use VMFS 6.0, VMFS 5.x, NFS 4.1, NFS 3, VVOL, or Virtual SAN 6.0 storage and later.

vSphere Replication 6.5 displays the 5 minute RPO setting when the target and the source site use VMFS 6.0, VMFS 5.x, NFS 4.1, NFS 3, VVOL, or Virtual SAN 6.0 storage and later.

You can use the 5 minute RPO setting if you are using different datastore types between the source and the target site.

The 5 minute RPO can be applied to a maximum of 100 VMs on VMFS 6.0, VMFS 5.x, NFS 4.1, NFS 3, and Virtual SAN 6.0 storage and later. The maximum for VVOL datastore is 50 VMs.

Note:

If you select the OS quiescing option while configuring replication, you cannot use an RPO value lower than 15 minutes.
