Backup/recovery API for the SAP HANA database (Backint for SAP HANA (HANA-BRINT 1.1))

SAP Integration Scenario

SAP has introduced a certification program for the Backint for SAP HANA interface (HANA-BRINT 1.1). This program certifies 3rd party backup tools for use with SAP HANA.

Note: Certification is a mandatory prerequisite for installing a 3rd party backup tool that uses Backint for SAP HANA on an SAP HANA appliance. For more information, see SAP Note 1730932 (Using backup tools with Backint).

When a 3rd party backup tool has been installed and configured for SAP HANA, backups are transferred via pipe from the SAP HANA database to the 3rd party backup agent. The backup agent runs on the SAP HANA database server and communicates with the remote 3rd party backup server.

The following functions are supported by the Backint for SAP HANA interface: backup, recovery, inquiry, delete.

3rd party backup tools are fully integrated with SAP HANA:

  • Execution of backups and recoveries from SAP HANA studio and via SAP HANA SQL commands
  • Configuration of tool-specific parameters via SAP HANA studio

Benefits of Certification

Important advantages of the certification include:

  • Certification tests on SAP HANA-certified appliances from different hardware vendors, both for single-node and scale-out SAP HANA configurations

Customers using SAP-certified solutions in their SAP environment, as well as the ISVs and partners offering these, experience great benefits such as shorter implementation times, technical enablement, and marketing assets that certification provides.
