    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Elastic
    B. Metered
    C. Self-service
    E. Pool of resources
    Explanation
    The four characteristics of a cloud platform are elastic, metered, self-service, and pool of resources. Elasticity refers to the ability of the platform to scale up or down based on demand. Metered means that users are charged based on their usage of resources. Self-service allows users to provision and manage resources without requiring assistance from IT staff. Pool of resources means that the platform provides a shared pool of computing resources that can be allocated to different users or applications as needed.

      Option 4

    Correct Answer
    A. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS
    Explanation
    The correct answer is IaaS, PaaS, SaaS. These are the three common types of service models in cloud computing. IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) provides virtualized computing resources over the internet, allowing users to manage and control their own infrastructure. PaaS (Platform as a Service) offers a platform for developing, testing, and deploying applications without the need to manage the underlying infrastructure. SaaS (Software as a Service) delivers software applications over the internet on a subscription basis, eliminating the need for users to install and maintain the software locally. These service models provide different levels of abstraction and flexibility for users in the cloud environment.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    When running a VM in Microsoft Azure, how is the compute portion metered and charged? This does not include bandwidth or storage costs, just CPU.

    • A.

      By the percentage load on the CPU core

    • B.

      By the CPU core hour used

    • C.

      Trick question. You pay by size, and not CPU core.

    • D.

      By the CPU core minute used

    Correct Answer
    D. By the CPU core minute used
    Explanation
    The compute portion of a VM in Microsoft Azure is metered and charged based on the CPU core minute used. This means that the cost is calculated by the amount of time the CPU cores are utilized, with the minute being the unit of measurement. The percentage load on the CPU core, CPU core hour used, and paying by size are not the correct ways in which the compute portion is metered and charged.

    Can a customer upload a custom VHD machine image to run as a VM?

    • A.

      Yes, within certain perfectly reasonable boundaries.

    • B.

      Not at all. You must use one from the Microsoft library and customize it.

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes, within certain perfectly reasonable boundaries.
    Explanation
    Yes, a customer can upload a custom VHD machine image to run as a VM. However, there are certain limitations and guidelines that need to be followed. These boundaries ensure that the uploaded image is compatible with the virtualization platform and meets the necessary requirements for running as a VM. It allows customers to have flexibility and customization options while maintaining a controlled environment for smooth operation.

    How is SQL Server licensed when running on a VM in Microsoft Azure?

    • A.

      It's just included in the regular costs. Go crazy with data!

    • B.

      You can migrate a traditional license, or pay extra by the hour to rent a license.

    • C.

      You have to rent a license by the hour for an extra charge.

    • D.

      Silly question. No one runs SQL Server on VM.

    Correct Answer
    B. You can migrate a traditional license, or pay extra by the hour to rent a license.
    Explanation
    When running SQL Server on a VM in Microsoft Azure, there are two options for licensing. The first option is to migrate a traditional license, which means using an existing license that was purchased outside of Azure. The second option is to rent a license by the hour, which incurs an additional charge. This allows flexibility for users to choose the licensing method that suits their needs and budget.

    What is our price match policy when it comes to AWS?

    • A.

      Give us a receipt, and we'll price match.

    • B.

      We don't match because the services aren't similar.

    • D.

      We are already lower priced than them, so no matching is available.

    Correct Answer
    C. We match on commodity services (vm compute, storage).
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "We match on commodity services (vm compute, storage)." This means that if a customer provides a receipt for a comparable service from AWS, our company will match the price for commodity services such as virtual machine compute and storage. This indicates that our price match policy applies specifically to these types of services and not to other non-commodity services.

    Both Amazon and Google have more cloud datacenters/regions than Microsoft Azure. We're behind, but expect to surpass them in Fall 2017.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement claims that both Amazon and Google have more cloud datacenters/regions than Microsoft Azure, but it also mentions that Microsoft Azure expects to surpass them in Fall 2017. Therefore, the statement contradicts itself, as it cannot be true that both Amazon and Google currently have more cloud datacenters/regions than Microsoft Azure, while also claiming that Microsoft Azure will surpass them in the future. Hence, the correct answer is False.

Additionally, it is mentioned that we support Linux, unlike AWS, and ensure that all customer data is encrypted at all times.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    AWS uses an open standard for their VM disk formats. This makes it easy for customers to avoid lock in, and move from vendor to vendor to on-premises as their business needs change. Azure cannot do this because of our higher performant, but proprietary VHD format.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. AWS does not use an open standard for their VM disk formats. They use their own proprietary disk format called Amazon Machine Image (AMI). Azure, on the other hand, uses the open standard Virtual Hard Disk (VHD) format. This allows customers to easily move their virtual machines between different cloud providers or to on-premises environments without being locked into a specific vendor.
