    Hello @@Jayesh Sawant - Appreciate your patience in this matter!

    Azure backup does offer solution for SAP HANA databases on Azure VM. However, in your scenario the actual servers are on-premise, one on VMware and the other one on Linux, which is not a supported scenario.

    You can use NFS on blob, mount that point to these servers and try using SAP native tools to schedule backups.
