You should use replication jobs. While 5 minutes is pretty short RPO, not sure you will be able to do that (depends on the amount of changes produced by the VMs), however what you can definitely do to get minimal RPO is using continuous replication - in this case each subsequent job run will start on completion of the previous job run, so the RPO will be equal to the time required to complete a job.
