Thousands of organizations rely on Oracle and SAP HANA databases for their business-critical, production workloads every day. These enterprise applications power their daily business operations, so having a successful backup solution is mandatory! IDC reports that enterprise databases, including in-memory and relational databases, continue to hold popularity both on premises and in clouds, thus reflecting the importance of being able to reliably back these up like other workloads. Many of these enterprise organizations also run Veeam to back up many of their solutions and have been asking for a way to integrate the backup, replication and restore features of Veeam Availability Suite, into a solution that works for these Oracle and SAP HANA applications as well.

It just works… For Enterprise databases too!

Veeam has a reputation of delivering simple, reliable solutions that work for any app, any data and any cloud and we are now extending this promise to supporting Enterprise Applications!

Veeam is proud to announce that this integration with Veeam Backup & Replication is now a reality, enabling backups directly into Veeam repositories with Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4 with Veeam Plug-in for Oracle and Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA. This integration saves time and simplifies the overall management of backups for mission critical database solutions. Let’s dive into these benefits a bit further.

Business benefits

Database Administrators (DBAs) have been leveraging the native backup solutions offered by Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) and SAP HANA (BACKINT) to protect and manage backups of their mission critical workloads. These organizations can now save time and improve operational efficiencies with the Veeam Plug-in for Oracle and Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA, which allows them to simplify management of even more workloads within the Veeam portal for a holistic view of all backups. This saves time while keeping the DBAs in control.

Veeam Plug-in for Oracle provides users with the ability to send Oracle RMAN backups to Veeam Backup & Replication repositories, including several benefits such as:

  • Direct Integration with Oracle RMAN
  • Backups to Veeam repositories for a single-pane-of-glass management view
