Veeam Plug-in for IBM Db2 uses the backup and restore functionality of IBM Db2 built-in tools and transfers backups to Veeam backup repositories. For details, see How Veeam Plug-in for IBM Db2 Works.

With the configured Veeam Plug-in, you can perform full, incremental or log backups for IBM Db2 databases. Use Veeam Plug-in to back up databases in the following cases:

  • If you want the database administrator to fully control the backup and recovery processes.
  • If you want to back up and restore individual databases.
  • If you want to use existing scripts or external schedulers.
  • If you use high availability disaster recovery (HADR).

You can use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to initiate and manage the Veeam Plug-in backup operations. For details, see Data Backup.


If you want to protect the server itself, you can use the image-level backup functionality of Veeam Backup & Replication, Veeam Agent for Linux or Veeam Agent for IBM AIX.

In case of malware activity or unplanned actions, you can perform restore operations based on the backup data transferred by Veeam Plug-in to the Veeam Backup & Replication backup repositories. You can restore entire databases from a full backup or to a specific point in time. Veeam Plug-in for IBM Db2 supports restoring databases to the original IBM Db2 machine or another server. For details, see Data Restore.
