The HANA DB data cannot be backed up by customers. There is an internal backup process happening for the HANA DB but that is specifically for SAP disaster recovery. This is documented under System Backup and Recovery. There is no process currently that enables the customer to request a restore of the Datasphere tenant or the tenant DB.  However, there is Object backup available for the customer in Datasphere.
