Distance between server sites

I am looking for either regulation or recommendation for the distance between the primary and disaster recovery location of the server sites. Is there any?

Most regulations and industry practices do not define any specific distance to recovery sites, because many factors can affect what would be considered a “safe” distance (e.g., type of disaster, access to public services, risk level, etc.). From our experience, we suggest you start a discussion suggesting a distance between 30 miles (50 kilometers) and 100 miles (160 kilometers) away from your primary location and from that analyze your organization's context (a geographic situation, available resources, required investment, etc.).

This article will provide you a further explanation about the distance of recovery site:
