Managing Worker Configurations

A configuration is a group of network settings that Veeam Backup for Google Cloud uses to deploy worker instances in a specific Google Cloud region to perform data protection and disaster recovery operations. Veeam Backup for Google Cloud deploys one worker instance per each VM, Cloud SQL or Cloud Spanner instance added to a backup policy or restore task.

By default, Veeam Backup for Google Cloud deploys worker instances with the same network configurations as those specified for the processed instances. However, to optimize infrastructure costs and to ensure better performance of backup and restore processes, you can add worker configurations to specify network settings for each region in which worker instances will be deployed.


You can tell worker instances from other VM instances running in your environment by their names — the names of all worker instances deployed by Veeam Backup for Google Cloud will contain the word worker, a GUID and the name of the processed resource, and will be assigned the label veeamvbid.
