SAP HANA has native functionality for backup and recovery, but sometimes 3rd party backup tools are needed to integrate SAP HANA in the already used backup solution provided by the IT department. For this integration with 3rd party backup and recovery tools SAP provides Backint for SAP HANA.
Currently (14-08-2013) the following tools have already been certified:
- Symantec NetBackup 7.5
- IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Enterprise 6.4
There is information written in a few SAP Notes:
- Note 1730928 - Using external software in a HANA appliance
- Note 1730932 - Using backup tools with Backint for HANA
In the blog
from Andrea Kristen you can find more information on the certified tools and the certification process.
