Question regarding the backing up of SAP servers

Hello SAP gurus

I have a basis related question.

We have several SAP servers (ECC, EP, XI) etc., servers and we are planning to find a suitable way to back up the server.

The backup software that we have can only back up flat files. We are using MSSQL database.

So what we are planning is to just do the backup from MSSQL from SQL server management studio which will back it up as a flat file. We want to save that flat file on the tape drive.

So my question is, if some thing happens to our server,

Can I just re-install the SAP server and SQL server and just recover the flat file that was backed up?

Or is there anything that I need to do? Is backing up this flat file, stores all the info or do I need to back up anything else?

Your suggestions or feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Tks

Ram
