Virtual Machines Quiz - Quiz

How much do you know about virtual machines? Can you pass this virtual machines quiz? Give it a try and evaluate yourself. Virtual machines (VMs) enable a business to run an operating system that works like a completely separate computer in an application window on a desktop. The quiz will be very tough and test your knowledge and understanding of the same. We hope you like this quiz and score the highest marks.

  • 2. 
    Compared with a traditional server data center, a data center that makes extensive use of server virtualization requires:
    • A. 

      Approximately 25% fewer staffers to support the servers and operating systems.

    • B. 

      Roughly the same number of staffers to support the servers and operating systems.

    • B. 

      False

  • 4. 
    The introduction of server virtualization in a data center:
    • A. 

      Will make the introduction of a storage-area network (SAN) absolutely necessary.

    • B. 

      Will not materially change storage requirements.

    • C. 

      Will make the climax of a SAN desirable.

    • D. 

      Will make the introduction of a SAN desirable.

  • 5. 
    When it comes to avoiding major outages, the use of server virtualization:
    • A. 

      Reduces the frequency of hardware-related service outages.

    • B. 

      Has no material impact.

    • C. 

      Requires that levels of redundancy be increased to avoid an increase in outages affecting multiple applications or services.

    • D. 

      None of the options is correct.

  • 6. 
    The smallest part of the work done in a data center tends to be driven by the number of servers.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 7. 
    On a particular server:
    • A. 

      You can reboot a virtual machine without it having any effect on the other virtual machines.

    • B. 

      If you reboot one virtual machine, all the other virtual machines reboot at the same time.

    • C. 

      If you need to reboot one virtual machine, you have to first reboot the physical server. The individual virtual machines then reboot automatically when the physical machine reboot is finished.

    • D. 

      None of the options is correct.

  • 8. 
    In a virtualized server environment, compared with a traditional server environment:
    • A. 

      It is easier to keep track of software licensing.

    • B. 

      Tracking software licensing is neither materially easier nor harder.

    • C. 

      It is significantly harder to keep track of software licensing.

    • D. 

      None of the options is correct.

  • 9. 
    It is generally desirable to provide some level of redundancy, permitting the entire contents of the server to be quickly moved to a standby server if the main server fails.

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 10. 
    When deciding on the placement of development, testing/QA and production instances of applications and databases:
    • A. 

      You can (and generally should) use virtualization to put the three instances of an application or a database on the same physical server so that the development and test environments are an accurate reflection of the eventual production environment.

    • B. 

      You should dedicate physical machines to hosting each type of instance so that the three types are not on the same server to make it easier to secure the production environment.

    • C. 

      It really doesn't matter where you place the different types of instances.

    • D. 

      None of the options is correct.
