Back up analysis services database

I regularly use Red Gate for database backups. Now I'm getting involved in Analysis Services (SSAS) and I want to back up the database(s) created in SSAS. I don't think that SQL Backup can do this, but please prove me wrong. Is there another tool which can?

Thanks in advance

    Thanks for your post.

    Unfortunately SQL Backup only works with your system & user databases and won't work with Analysis services ones (as you suspected).

    I'm not aware of a 3rd party tool off the top of my head that would help, but a quick google led to some useful looking information here

    Something for Version 8 perhaps? :)
