    For the ones who are interested in using Snapshots of SAP HANA, than one can use Spictera Snapshot storing the snapshots on the IBM Spectrum Protect

    Each snapshot are taken locally and incrementally sent using progressive block level forever techniques to the IBM Spectrum Protect server.

    The snapshot retention policy are centralized controlled from the IBM Spectrum Protect backup server

    Restoring snapshots are almost instantly.
