So, apparently, IBM’s TSM (Tivoli Storage Manager) for Enteprise Resource Planning now supports Backup/Recovery of data on HANA DB. Since I hadn’t found this information here before, I thought it’d be worth sharing.
Sorry if it’s old news.
According to this document on IBM, it’s available from TSM version 6.4.0 and HANA 1.0 SPS4 (it doesn’t specify which rev). I’m yet to find any information on this within SAP’s website, experiencesaphana.com or SAP Notes.
As soon as I see anything there, I’ll make sure to update this blog.
Here is the content of the document on IBM:
