A cloud administrator has deployed a new all-flash storage array with deduplication and
compression enabled, and moved some of the VMs into it. The goal was to achieve 4:1 storage
efficiency while maintaining sub-millisecond latency. Which of the following results would BEST
suit the requirements?
A. Compression 1:1, Deduplication 4:1, Overall savings 4:1, Average latency 1.0ms
B. Compression 1.5:1, Deduplication 1.8:1, Overall savings 2.2:1, Average latency 600us
C. Compression 1.3:1, Deduplication 3.1:1, Overall savings 4.3:1, Average latency 900us
D. Compression 1.8:1, Deduplication 2.7:1, Overall savings 4.2:1, Average latency 1.2ms
A company's security policy requires full disk encryption on all clients with preboot enabled. The
encryption server is hosted, and the requirement is to push an update to all endpoints. Which of
the following is the BEST method to test and apply the update with minimal disruption to end users?
A. Access the API of the encryption server, develop a custom script, and then update all
B. Access the web UI portal of the encryption server, apply the update to the test group,
validate, and then update all endpoints.
C. Add the update to the standard desktop configuration image, apply the update to a test VM,
and then reimage clients.
D. Access the web UI of the encryption server and disable preboot, apply the update, test,
and then deploy the update to all endpoints.
A software development company is building cloud-ready applications and needs to determine the
best approach for releasing software. Which of the following approaches should be used?
A. Perform QA, develop, test, and release to production
B. Test, perform QA, develop, and release to production
C. Develop, perform QA, test, and release to production
D. Develop, test, perform QA, and release to production
In an IaaS model, to which of the following methodologies would the client apply a list of OS patches,
assuming approval from CAB has been given?
A. Using a patch management system, identify the hypervisor type, select a group of
hypervisors to be patched, and perform a rolling application of patches.
B. Using a patch management system, identify the guests that require patching, and select
and apply the patches.
C. Using a patch management system, identify the applications needing the patch, select the
required application in a patch management console, and apply the patches.
D. Using a patch management system, identify the services that require patching, and select
and apply the patches.
A company is migrating their physical servers to virtual. The administrator is tasked with migrating
- One application server with a dual-core 3.2GHz processor that reaches
50% CPU utilization at peak time.
- Two web servers, each with a dual-core 3.2GHz processor, both reaching
70% CPU utilization at peak time.
Currently, the administrator only has two hosts available, so resources will need to be set for the
new VMs. Each host has two 2.4GHz quad-core processors. One host is already near maximum
capacity, and the second host is at 30% CPU utilization. Which of the following would be the BEST
minimum CPU resources set on the second host for the new VMs?
A. 1,600 MHz for the application server and 2,300 MHz for each web server.
B. 3,300 MHz for the application server and 4,600 MHz for each web server.
C. 3,300 MHz for the application server and 5,250 MHz for each web server.
D. 5,250 MHz for the application server and 7,080 MHZ for each web server.
