A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11971787B2) discloses a computer-implemented method for efficient database backup. The method involves installing a backup agent in a first database system, receiving information about the system, executing queries to determine the system's topology, configuring a receiver service in a second database system based on the topology, and setting up an interface module in the first database system for backing up data to the second system. The method includes streaming updates from the first database system to the second one, ensuring seamless data transfer.

Furthermore, the patent details a system and a tangible machine-readable storage medium that implement the method described above. The system includes a memory with instructions and computer processors to execute operations like installing the backup agent, configuring the receiver service, and streaming updates. The tangible storage medium contains instructions for performing similar operations, ensuring data backup efficiency. The method and systems outlined in the patent aim to streamline the backup process, providing full and incremental backups, updating connection information dynamically, and handling transaction logs effectively for comprehensive database protection.
