If the target and the source sites use VMFS 6.0, VMFS 5.x, NFS 4.1, NFS 3, VVOL, or vSAN 6.2 Update 3 storage and later, you can use the 5 minute Recovery Point Objective (RPO).

vSphere Replication 8.1 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 vSAN 6.2 Update 3 storage and later.

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

The 5 minute RPO requires the source host to be ESXi 6.0 or later for vSAN, and ESXi 6.5 for other supported datastores.

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 vSAN 6.2 Update 3 storage and later. The maximum for VVOL datastore is 50 VMs.

Note: RPO lower than 15 minutes is not supported when you select the OS quiescing option.
