I had this question after viewing Backing up Sybase database Server using Veeam
I'm new in experts-exchange community. My company is on the way to use SAP Solutions. Right now I must choose backup concept for all VM's and databases. As far I know HANA backs up relatively automatic (dumps database and logs from RAM to storage). The issue what keeps me not sleeping is backup from Sybase ver. 11 databases, as database shouldn't be stopped at any time (24/7 availabilty) and this version have no support for VSS. I've readed that it's possible to HA (High Availabilty) and DR (Disaster Restore) only with VMWare solutions but I'm not sure - will consistency of database not be corrupted?...
Can someone give me a Tip what would be the best solution?
Database: Sybase 11
VMWare: vSphere 5.5
Many thanks for Your replies.
