Managing Worker Instances

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 Microsoft Azure uses worker instances.

Each worker instance is launched in a specific Azure region and keeps running for the duration of the backup or restore process. For more information on regions in which Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure launches worker instances, see Architecture Overview.
