AWS Backup now offers a simple, cost-effective, and application-consistent backup and restore solution for SAP HANA databases running on Amazon EC2. With this launch, you can centrally automate backup and restore of your SAP HANA application data, in addition to the currently supported AWS services. Using AWS Backup’s seamless integration with AWS Organizations, you can create and manage immutable backups of SAP HANA databases across all your accounts, help protect your data from inadvertent or malicious actions, and restore the data.

To get started with AWS Backup for SAP HANA on Amazon EC2, you can use the AWS Management console, CLI, or SDK to create backup policies to start protecting your SAP HANA databases. AWS Backup leverages AWS Systems Manager (SSM) for SAP to register these SAP HANA systems and AWS Backint Agent to take backups. Once you define your backup policies and assign SAP HANA resources to the policies, AWS Backup automates the creation of SAP HANA backups that are application-consistent and stores those backups in an encrypted backup vault that you designate. You can now take continuous backups with PITR (Point-In-Time Recovery) support, automatically set lifecycle policies to cold storage, and restore your data with a few clicks.

AWS Backup for SAP HANA databases running on Amazon EC2 will be available in the AWS Regions where AWS Backup is offered with the exception of Asia Pacific (Hyderabad), Asia Pasific (Jakarta), AWS GovCloud (US-East), AWS GovCloud (US-West), China (Beijing), China(Ningxia), Europe (Spain), Europe (Zurich), and Middle East (UAE) Regions.
