    CV0-002 Part 04 Q11 017
    CV0-002 Part 04 Q11 017

    Which of the following descriptions of the situation is correct?

    • The deployment was done with the wrong memory configuration.
    • The deployment was unsuccessful due to the cloud failure.
    • The deployment was successful, but the capacity planning was inaccurate.
    • The deployment was done with the wrong storage parameter.
  12. A large finance firm processes three times as many transactions in December of each year. The transactions are processed in a private cloud. Management wants to avoid adding permanent resources to accommodate the single month increase. Which of the following is the BEST way to meet the need?

    • Migrate all transaction processing to a public cloud and size capacity for the largest seasonal needs.
    • Keep current capacity for processing, but implement cloud bursting to auto scale the resources without having to invest in infrastructure.
    • Determine usage patterns over time and virtualize the processing traffic to give room for seasonal changes in resource demand.
    • Determine usage patterns for the seasonal capacity needs and add physical resources to allow additional processing.
  13. A cloud administrator is adding several accounts for new development team interns. These interns will need access to some, but not all, of the resources and will only be working over the summer. Which of the following user provisioning techniques should be used?

    • Create a single account for the interns to share. Set the expiration date for the account to six months.
    • Create a role labeled “interns” with the appropriate permissions. Create a separate account with an expiration date for each intern and add each intern to that role.
    • Create one template user account with the appropriate permissions and use it to clone the other accounts. Set an expiration date for each account individually.
    • Create individual accounts for each intern, set the permissions and expiration date for each account, and link them to a temporary guests user group.
  14. After deploying new VMs, the systems administrator notices it is not possible to connect to them using network credentials; however, local accounts work. After logging in, the administrator notices the NTP servers are not set. Which of the following is MOST likely causing this issue?

    • Directory services requires the use of NTP servers.
    • The VMs are insufficiently licensed.
    • There is a directory services outage.
    • There is a time synchronization issue.
  15. A cloud engineer notices on a dashboard that the host is close to reaching maximum capacity for the CPU and memory in the cloud environment, which could cause performance issues. The cloud environment has 100 servers, with 25% of the servers consuming their compute only during peak business hours, 25% consuming half of the allocated resources, and the remaining 50% using the compute during off hours. Which of the following should the engineer perform to optimize the efficiency of the compute usage in the cloud?

    • Add additional CPUs and RAM to the host that is serving the cloud.
    • Adjust the cloud workload by migrating resource-intensive applications to different hosts.
    • Add additional hosts to the environment using the cloud management tool.
    • Enable automatic scaling in the cloud management tool.
  16. A cloud administrator is managing two private cloud environments. In cloud A, the disaster recovery solution has an SLA for RPO of five minutes and RTO of one hour. In cloud B, the disaster recovery solution has an SLA for RPO of one hour and RTO of 24 hours. A new customer’s application requires that, in case of a disaster, no more than 15 minutes of data can be lost, and it should be fully recovered within one day. Which of the following would be the BEST approach to this application?

    • Tell the customer cloud A is the best solution
    • Put it in cloud B and ask the customer to create snapshots every 15 minutes
    • Both cloud A and cloud B would suit the customer’s needs
    • Change the cloud B disaster recovery solution so RPO will be 15 minutes
  17. A new private cloud platform is being deployed by an engineer. SLA requirements state that any clusters should have a baseline redundancy sufficient to handle the failure of at least two hosts. The engineer records the following metrics after the deployment:
