Overview

Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA connects SAP HANA servers and Veeam backup repositories by interacting with databases through the SAP HANA Backint component. Backint for SAP HANA is the backup interface that enables Veeam Plug-in to communicate with SAP HANA databases and send the database backup files to the specified Veeam repositories. For details, see How Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA Works.
