Managing Worker Instances

In this article

    To perform most data protection and disaster recovery operations (such as creating image-level backups in backup repositories and restoring backed-up data), Veeam Backup for AWS uses worker instances. Each worker instance is launched in a specific AWS Region for the duration of the backup or restore process. For more information on AWS Regions in which Veeam Backup for AWS launches worker instances to perform restore and backup operations, see Architecture Overview.

    To launch worker instances, Veeam Backup for AWS uses the default network settings of AWS Regions. However, to optimize infrastructure costs and to ensure better performance of backup and restore processes, you can configure specific network settings for worker instances in different AWS Regions.
