Managing Worker Instances
To perform most data protection and disaster recovery operations (such as creating image-level backups in S3 repositories and restoring backed-up data), Veeam Backup for AWS uses worker instances. Each worker instance is launched for the duration of the backup or restore process. Veeam Backup for AWS uses the default network settings of an AWS Region where the worker instance will be launched.
To optimize infrastructure costs and to ensure better performance of the backup and restore processes, you can specify network settings for AWS Regions in which worker instances will be launched.
