Database Backup (SAP HANA Cockpit)

After you configure Veeam Plug-in settings, you can back up your databases with SAP HANA Cockpit 2.0. You can perform complete, incremental, and differential backups of SYSTEMDB and tenant databases. Veeam Plug-in will automatically transform backup files to Veeam backup repository. Keep in mind that you must select the Backint option as a destination target.
