NetApp Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud is a fully managed cloud service that enables you to move your mission-critical workloads and applications to the cloud, and manage them with ease.

You can take instant snapshots and create clones. But, how do you coordinate your enterprise application backup with your snapshots? It might be easier than you think.

We've just published sample code showing how SAP HANA backups can be captured in a snapshot.

ntaphana --hana-backup

You can then create clones from the snapshot and even restore from a snapshot. You can list snapshots by cloud volume and delete them, all through a python script we've just open sourced.

Why SAP HANA? Because Cloud Volumes Service for Google Cloud is now certified for use with SAP HANA on Google Cloud. You can check out a demo of the script in action.

If you want to do something similar with your enterprise app, you can save time by starting with sample code. Even if you prefer a different programming language, ntaphana can show you how to use the RESTful APIs for CVS.
