Veeam Backup for GCP deploys one worker instance per each VM instance added to a backup policy or restore task. Veeam Backup for GCP comes with the default worker configuration that deploys worker instances with the same networking configurations as those specified for the processed VM instances.
To optimize infrastructure costs and to ensure better performance of the backup and restore processes, you can add custom 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 — all worker instances deployed by Veeam Backup for GCP will have the word worker, the name of a related backup policy, and a GUID in their names.
