For each data protection and disaster recovery operation performed for a Google Cloud resource, you must specify a service account that has access to the resource and a set of permissions that determine what operations are allowed for the resource.
Particularly, Veeam Backup for Google Cloud uses service accounts to perform the following tasks:
- To access projects that manage Google Cloud resources.
- To synchronize the Google Cloud environment data with the configuration data stored on the backup appliance.
- To create and remove snapshots of VM instances.
- To create and remove snapshots of Cloud SQL instances.
