What is a Service Profile?

When creating Virtual Protection Groups (VPGs) you will need to select a Service Profile for each VPG.

Zettagrid have predefined 4 different Service Profiles from which to choose from which are;

Service Profile
Target RPO
Description
Bronze 8 hour This is the default profile and any VM in a VPG with this profile will have a target RPO of 8 hours.
Silver 1 hour Any VM in a VPG in this profile will have a target RPO of 1 hour.
Gold 15 min Any VM in a VPG in this profile will have a target RPO of 15 minutes.
Platinum 5 min Any VM in a VPG in this profile will have a target RPO of 5 minutes.

More info

In the event of bandwidth saturation or contention the Service Profiles will be used to determine which VPGs have priority over others. If a VPG has a more aggressive the target RPO than another VPG then its block changes will be sent across the wire before its lower profiled counterpart.

You can change the Service Profile of any VPG but please be aware that after changing the profile there may be warnings displayed whilst the VMs within the VPG are adjusting to the new Service Profile.
