Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Just what is the cloud?

    • A.

      Atmospheric concentrations of gas that hold moisture. Often white and puffy.

    • B.

      System of storage that allows users to store private content on their hard-drives.

    • C.

      Interconnected online data that is stored online rather than any one area.

    • D.

      It’s that tech term. You know… that one…thing… people talk about. I have no idea.

    Correct Answer
    C. Interconnected online data that is stored online rather than any one area.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Interconnected online data that is stored online rather than any one area." This answer accurately describes what the cloud is - a system of storage that allows users to store and access data from any location, as opposed to being limited to a specific physical location. The term "cloud" refers to the interconnected nature of this storage system, where data is stored on remote servers and accessed through the internet.

    What is the proper hierarchy of the cloud stacks?

    • A.

      IaaS < PaaS < SaaS

    • B.

      PaaS < SaaS < IaaS

    • C.

      SaaS < IaaS < PaaS

    • D.

      SaaS < PaaS < IaaS

    • E.

      They're all equal.

    Correct Answer
    D. SaaS < PaaS < IaaS
    Explanation
    The proper hierarchy of the cloud stacks is SaaS < PaaS < IaaS. In this hierarchy, Software as a Service (SaaS) is at the top, followed by Platform as a Service (PaaS), and then Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). This hierarchy represents the different levels of abstraction and control that each stack provides. SaaS offers ready-to-use software applications accessed over the internet, PaaS provides a platform for developing and deploying applications, and IaaS offers virtualized computing resources such as servers and storage.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    PaaS stands for...

    • A.

      Programming as a Service

    • B.

      Platform as a Service

    • C.

      Penguins as a Service

    • D.

      Pineapple as a Softserve

    Correct Answer
    B. Platform as a Service
    Explanation
    PaaS stands for Platform as a Service. This model of cloud computing provides a platform for developers to build, test, and deploy applications without the need to manage the underlying infrastructure. With PaaS, developers can focus on the development and deployment of their applications, while the platform takes care of managing the hardware, operating system, and runtime environment. This allows for faster development cycles and increased productivity.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    You decided to store all your data in the cloud. The next day your computer accidentally explodes from 17 sticks of dynamite. YOU HAVE LOST ALL OF YOUR DATA.

    • A.

      True – Cloud technology by nature syncs itself to the hardware that uploads the information, and thus requires an operational source

    • B.

      True – Your data in the cloud is deleted when the computer’s IP address changes or disappears as security measure

    • C.

      False – Your information is stored in nebulous internet software, and has no attachment to your computer

    • D.

      False – Dynamite only explodes in even numbers.

    Correct Answer
    C. False – Your information is stored in nebulous internet software, and has no attachment to your computer
    Explanation
    The correct answer is false because cloud technology stores data in internet software and does not have any direct attachment to the computer. Therefore, even if the computer is destroyed, the data stored in the cloud remains unaffected and can be accessed from any device with internet connection.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Which cloud stack specializes in storing, running and designing applications without the hardware?

    • A.

      PaaS

    • B.

      IaaS

    • C.

      SaaS

    • D.

      The Matrix

    Correct Answer
    A. PaaS
    Explanation
    PaaS, or Platform as a Service, is a cloud stack that specializes in providing a platform for developers to build, run, and manage applications without the need for hardware. It allows users to focus on the development and deployment of their applications, while the underlying infrastructure and hardware are managed by the PaaS provider. This eliminates the need for users to worry about hardware maintenance, allowing them to solely concentrate on application design and functionality.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which is a perk for operating and storing data in the cloud?

    • A.

      Frees up personal storage space

    • B.

      Universal access to information

    • C.

      Trans-continental collaboration

    • D.

      Faster processing speed

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    Operating and storing data in the cloud offers several perks. Firstly, it frees up personal storage space as data is stored remotely. Secondly, it provides universal access to information, allowing users to access their data from any device with an internet connection. Thirdly, it enables trans-continental collaboration by allowing multiple users to work on the same data simultaneously from different locations. Lastly, the cloud offers faster processing speed, as data can be processed and accessed quickly. Therefore, all of the options mentioned are perks of operating and storing data in the cloud.

    What is SaaS?

    • A.

      Syndication as a Service

    • B.

      Systems as a Service

    • C.

      Smeagol as a Spy

    • D.

      Software as a Service

    Correct Answer
    D. Software as a Service
    Explanation
    SaaS stands for Software as a Service. It is a cloud computing model where software applications are provided to users over the internet. Instead of downloading and installing software on individual computers, users can access and use the software through a web browser. This eliminates the need for users to manage and maintain the software themselves, as all updates and maintenance are handled by the service provider. SaaS offers a flexible and cost-effective solution for businesses and individuals, as they only pay for the software they need and can easily scale up or down as required.

      True: the cloud requires specific programs for access and operation

    • B.

      False: Do you have an internet connection? You're good.

    Correct Answer
    B. False: Do you have an internet connection? You're good.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is False because software on your computer is not required for cloud computing. Cloud computing relies on internet connectivity, and as long as you have an internet connection, you can access and use cloud services without the need for any specific software on your computer.
