Here's the Microsoft definition of it:

It can be issued from any software that can connect to SQL server. That could be and ADO or ADODB connection/command from VB/VB.NET/C#/C++, etc. There are many way to get there. Then you issue that simple text command and SQL Server performs some sort of backup.
