Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    All of the following are the three main components of Windows Azure Platform except...

    • A.

      Compute

    • B.

      Storage

    • C.

      Savepower

    • D.

      AppFabric

    Correct Answer
    C. Savepower
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Savepower" because the Windows Azure Platform consists of three main components: Compute, Storage, and AppFabric. Compute refers to the processing power and resources needed to run applications, while Storage provides a scalable and durable storage solution. AppFabric is a set of services that enable applications to connect and communicate with each other. However, "Savepower" is not a component of the Windows Azure Platform and does not exist in its offerings.

    How many types of deployment models are used in clouds? 

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      2

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      4

    Correct Answer
    D. 4
    Explanation
    There are four types of deployment models used in clouds. These include public cloud, private cloud, hybrid cloud, and community cloud. Public cloud refers to services provided by third-party vendors over the internet. Private cloud is dedicated to a single organization and is managed internally or by a third-party. Hybrid cloud combines public and private cloud resources, allowing organizations to have greater flexibility and control. Community cloud is shared by multiple organizations with similar needs and concerns.

    All of the following are the roles of the Compute component in Azure except... 

    • A.

      Rastar

    • B.

      Web

    • C.

      Worker

    • D.

      VM

    Correct Answer
    A. Rastar
    Explanation
    The Compute component in Azure includes services such as Virtual Machines (VMs), Azure Batch, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), and Azure Container Instances (ACI). These services are responsible for running and managing applications and workloads in the cloud. However, "Rastar" is not a recognized role or service in Azure's Compute component. Therefore, the correct answer is "Rastar" as it is not a valid role in Azure Compute.

    Which of the following is a combination of many virtualized instances which run client application? 

    • A.

      Compute

    • B.

      Cloud

    • C.

      Fabric

    • D.

      Vector

    Correct Answer
    C. Fabric
    Explanation
    Fabric is the correct answer because it refers to a combination of many virtualized instances that run client applications. In the context of cloud computing, a fabric is a framework or infrastructure that allows for the creation and management of virtualized resources. These virtualized instances can be used to run client applications, providing a scalable and flexible environment for computing needs.

    What is a Blob? 

    • A.

      A small size file

    • B.

    Explanation
    A Blob is a term used to refer to a file of any size. It can be a small size file or a large size file, or even a file of any other size. The term "Blob" does not specify a specific size range for the file. Therefore, the correct answer is "File of any size".

    How would you categorize Windows Azure?

    • A.

      IaaS

    • B.

      PaaS

      SaaS

    • D.

      Drop

    Correct Answer
    B. PaaS
    Explanation
    Windows Azure would be categorized as PaaS (Platform as a Service). PaaS is a cloud computing model where a provider offers a platform to develop, run, and manage applications without the complexity of infrastructure management. Windows Azure provides a platform for developers to build, deploy, and manage applications using various programming languages, frameworks, and tools. It allows developers to focus on application development rather than worrying about the underlying infrastructure.

    You can programmatically scale out Azure Worker Role instances by...

    • A.

      Creating a table

    • B.

      Creating a task

    • C.

      Using baselines

    • D.

      Using AutoScaling Application

    Correct Answer
    D. Using AutoScaling Application
    Explanation
    Using AutoScaling Application is the correct answer because it allows you to automatically adjust the number of Azure Worker Role instances based on predefined rules or metrics. This ensures that your application can handle increased workload and maintain performance without manual intervention. By setting up AutoScaling Application, you can easily scale out your Worker Role instances as needed, improving the scalability and efficiency of your application.

    What is referred to as an operating system that runs on a virtual machine that hosts an instance of role?

    • A.

      Owner OS

    • B.

      Guest OS

    • C.

      Base OS

    • D.

      Object OS

    Correct Answer
    B. Guest OS
    Explanation
    A guest operating system refers to an operating system that runs on a virtual machine. In this context, the virtual machine acts as a host and provides the necessary resources for the guest operating system to run. The guest operating system is isolated from the underlying hardware and interacts with the virtual machine instead. Therefore, the correct answer is Guest OS.

    The benefit of Azure SLA is constant connectivity. Azure SLA ensures that the services and applications hosted on the Azure platform have a guaranteed uptime and availability. This means that users can access their resources and data without any interruption, leading to improved productivity and reliability. With constant connectivity, businesses can confidently rely on Azure for their critical workloads and applications, knowing that they will be accessible at all times.
