AWS Backint Agent now supports three new features: Amazon S3 Intelligent Tiering, the ability to send log and data backups to separate folders, and compatibility with Ansible.

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.

Amazon S3 Intelligent Tiering is the only cloud storage class that delivers automatic cost savings by moving objects between four access tiers when access patterns changes, helping you further reduce backup storage costs for SAP HANA databases.

Further, the ability to send log and data backups to separate folders makes it simpler to select your desired backup file before performing a restore.

Ansible support gives SAP on AWS customers more choice, allowing them to use existing open-source configuration language with AWS Backint Agent installation.
