Commvault Simpana 10.0 has just successfully passed the certification for SAP HANA Backint.
This means that you can now use Commvault Simpana for backing up and recovering the SAP HANA database in accordance with SAP Note 1730932 (Using backup tools with Backint).
Backint for SAP HANA is an API that enables 3rd party tool vendors to directly connect their backup agents to the SAP HANA database. Backups are transferred via pipe from the SAP HANA database to the 3rd party backup agent, which runs on the SAP HANA database server and then sends the backups to the 3rd party backup server.
3rd party backup tools can be fully integrated with SAP HANA:
- Execution of backup and recovery from SAP HANA studio and via SAP HANA SQL commands
- Configuration of tool-specific parameters via SAP HANA studio
Documentation on SAP HANA backup/recovery is available in the Administration Guide on the SAP Help Portal.
