AWS Backint Agent version 1.04 is now available in all commercial regions, including AWS GovCloud (US) Regions.

AWS Backint Agent is an SAP-certified backup and restore solution for SAP HANA workloads running on Amazon EC2 instances. AWS Backint Agent makes it easy to back up your SAP HANA databases to Amazon S3 and restore them using familiar tools, such as SAP HANA Cockpit, SAP HANA Studio, or SQL commands. AWS Backint Agent supports full, incremental, differential and log backup of SAP HANA database and catalogs to Amazon S3.

AWS Backint Agent Version 1.04 introduces a few new features:

  • Bucket Owner Full Control Access: AWS Backint Agent now grants the owner of the target S3 bucket full access and control to backups triggered by other accounts, enabling cross-account backups. For example, some customers have asked to be able to centrally manage backups from separate AWS accounts they use for production and non production, which is now supported by AWS Backint Agent. 
  • Instance Metadata Service v2 Support: The installer for AWS Backint Agent now supports Amazon EC2 Instance Metadata Service (IMDS) v2.
