Amazon Backint Agent
Amazon Backint Agent for SAP HANA is an SAP-certified backup and restore solution for SAP HANA workloads running on Amazon EC2 instances. Amazon Backint Agent backs up your SAP HANA database to Amazon S3 and restores it using SAP management tools, such as SAP HANA Cockpit, SAP HANA Studio, or SQL commands. Amazon Backint Agent supports full, incremental, differential, and log backup of SAP HANA database and catalogs to Amazon S3. There is no cost to use Amazon Backint Agent. You only pay for the underlying Amazon Web Services services you use.
Amazon Backint Agent supports server-side encryption of backups and validates Amazon S3 bucket ownership before backup and restore to and from Amazon S3.
Amazon Backint Agent is optimized to utilize the maximum Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) throughput and network bandwidth available to Amazon S3 from your EC2 instance. This increases the speed at which your SAP HANA database can be backed up or restored to and from Amazon S3, improving your Recovery Time Objective (RTO).
Amazon Backint Agent is integrated with the SAP HANA Backint API, which has built-in validations to provide reliable backup and restore capabilities.
Amazon Backint Agent directly backs up your SAP HANA databases to Amazon S3. This prevents the need to create custom scripts to manually copy your SAP HANA backup files to and from S3.
Lower Recovery Point Objective (RPO)
Amazon Backint Agent can automatically back up your SAP HANA database log files to Amazon S3 at regular intervals to meet your RPO requirements.
