Backup of Database Systems
You can instruct Veeam Agent for Linux to create consistent backups of Veeam Agent computers that run one of the supported database systems.
Supported Database Systems
Veeam Agent processes the Oracle database system using an internal component: oralib.
Veeam Agent processes the PostgreSQL database system using an internal component: pgsqlagent.
To learn how backup of database systems works, see the Backup of Database Systems section in the Veeam Agent for Linux User Guide.
Backup of Database Archived Logs
If you back up the Oracle or PostgreSQL database system using a backup job managed by Veeam backup server, Veeam Agent can also back up archived logs. You can use archived logs to restore the database system to the necessary state up to the certain operation. Veeam Agent backups archived logs in the similar way as in a backup job for VMs, with the same requirements and limitations.
To learn more about backup of Oracle database archived logs, see the Oracle Log Backup section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
To learn more about backup of PostgreSQL database archived logs, see the PostgreSQL Log Backup section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
