As discussed in the section “Data protection strategy,” policies are usually configured independently of the resource and can be used by multiple SAP HANA databases.

A typical minimum configuration consists of the following policies:

  • Policy for hourly Snapshot backups.

    For example, SnapshotEvery4h

  • Policy for weekly block integrity check using a file-based backup.

    For example, BlockIntegrityCheckEverySunday

The following sections describe the configuration of these two policies.
