HANA based systems, backup concept


Hi all,

I could not find much information and best practicces for HANA backups.

We have HANA systems on vSphere virtual servers.

The question is - do we need HANA DB backups (let's say in /backup) when we already backup

the whole VM, and we successfully restore it????

If we don't make DB backups the database is not very happy, red messages, and the logs become quite a mess.

On the other hand I see we can use Veeam plugin to make HANA backups through the backint, but then we don't have a whole VM backup.....

What is the right concept??

Thank you!
