Amazon Backint Agent is now available in the Amazon Web Services China (Beijing) Region, operated by Sinnet, and Amazon Web Services China (Ningxia) Region, operated by NWCD in addition to all commercial regions.

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.

Amazon Backint Agent runs on an SAP HANA database server, where backups and catalogs are transferred from the SAP HANA database to the Backint Agent. Amazon Backint Agent stores your files in the Amazon S3 bucket specified in the agent configuration file. To restore your SAP HANA database server, SAP HANA reads the catalog files stored in your S3 bucket using Amazon Backint Agent and initiates a request to restore the required files from the S3 bucket.
