Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) is a fully managed online backup service that allows you to back up data to the cloud in an efficient, secure, and cost-effective way. HBR is compatible with SAP HANA 1.0 and 2.0 and integrated with the SAP HANA API to back up and restore data. You can use HBR backup clients for Elastic Compute Service (ECS) to back up SAP HANA instances that are hosted on ECS. You can then restore these instances if needed.

Note HBR uses the Backint API for SAP HANA to back up and restore data. Backup data is not stored in files. HBR calls the Backint API for SAP HANA to directly read data from or write data to SAP HANA instances.

You can use the following procedure to back up an SAP HANA instance:
