Plug-ins for application integration


Plug-ins are used to put applications or databases into a consistent state. Snap Creator contains several plug-ins that are already part of the binary file and do not require any additional installation.

Types of applications that are supported include database, email, hypervisor, or custom applications. The following plug-ins are supported for use with Snap Creator:

  • Application and database plug-ins:

    • DB2

    • IBM Domino (Domino)

    • MaxDB

    • MySQL

      Note The MySQL plug-in does not support backup and restore operations for multiple databases.
    • Oracle

    • SAP High-Performance Analytic Appliance (HANA)

    • Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE)

  • SnapManager plug-ins:

    • SnapManager for Microsoft Exchange

    • SnapManager for Microsoft SQL Server

  • Hypervisor plug-ins:

    • Citrix XenServer

    • Red Hat Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM)

    • VMware (vSphere for individual virtual machine backup and vCloud Director for vApp backup)

Custom (also called "community") plug-ins are written by the developer community, and can be enabled by Snap Creator but are not supported. These plug-ins leverage the interface provided by Snap Creator and enable the developers to concentrate their development efforts on their target applications.
