Managing Worker Configurations
A configuration is a group of network settings that Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure uses to launch worker instances in a specific Azure region to perform data protection and disaster recovery operations. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure launches one worker instance per each Azure resource added to a backup policy or restore task.
By default, Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure creates a new network configuration for each Azure region in which it launches worker instances. However, you can add custom worker configurations to provide network settings that will be used to launch worker instances in a specific region.
You can tell worker instances from other Azure VMs running in your environment — all worker instances launched by Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure will have the word VBA and a GUID in their names, and the Veeam backup appliance ID tag.
