Q1. A 3-tier e-commerce web application is current deployed on-premises and will be migrated to AWS for greater scalability and elasticity The web server currently shares read-only data using a network distributed file system The app server tier uses a clustering mechanism for discovery and shared session state that depends on IP multicast The database tier uses shared-storage clustering to provide database fall over capability, and uses several read slaves for scaling Data on all servers and the distributed file system directory is backed up weekly to off-site tapes

Which AWS storage and database architecture meets the requirements of the application?

A. Web servers, store read-only data in S3, and copy from S3 to root volume at boot time App servers snare state using a combination or DynamoDB and IP unicast Database use RDS with multi-AZ deployment and one or more Read Replicas Backup web and app servers backed up weekly via Mils database backed up via DB snapshots.

B. Web servers store -read-only data in S3, and copy from S3 to root volume at boot time App servers share state using a combination of DynamoDB and IP unicast Database, use RDS with multi-AZ deployment and one or more read replicas Backup web servers app servers, and database backed up weekly to Glacier using snapshots.

C. Web servers store read-only data In S3 and copy from S3 to root volume at boot time App servers share state using a combination of DynamoDB and IP unicast Database use RDS with multi-AZ deployment Backup web and app servers backed up weekly via AM is. database backed up via DB snapshots

D. Web servers, store read-only data in an EC2 NFS server, mount to each web server at boot time App servers share state using a combination of DynamoDB and IP multicast Database use RDS with multl-AZ deployment and one or more Read Replicas Backup web and app servers backed up weekly via Mils database backed up via DB snapshots

Answer:- A
B: You can’t directly backup EBS snapshots to Glacier they first need to be move to S3 standard.
C: doesn’t have DB read replicas
D: AWS does not support IP Multicast.
So only A seems to be correct.

Q2. Your customer wishes to deploy an enterprise application to AWS which will consist of several web servers, several application servers and a small (50GB) Oracle database information is stored, both in the database and the file systems of the various servers. The backup system must support database recovery whole server and whole disk restores, and individual file restores with a recovery time of no more than two hours. They have chosen to use RDS Oracle as the database

Which backup architecture will meet these requirements?

A. Backup RDS using automated daily DB backups Backup the EC2 instances using AMI s and supplement with file-level backup to S3 using traditional enterprise backup software to provide file level restore

B. Backup RDS using a Multi-AZ Deployment Backup the EC2 instances using AMI s, and supplement by copying file system data to S3 to provide file level restore.

C. Backup RDS using automated daily DB backups Backup the EC2 instances using EBS snapshots and supplement with file-level backups to Amazon Glacier using traditional enterprise backup software to provide file level restore

D. Backup RDS database to S3 using Oracle RMAN Backup the EC2 instances using AMI s, and supplement with EBS snapshots for individual volume restore.

Answer :- A
B:- Multi AZ is for DR.
C:-Glacier takes 3-4 hours so RTO of 2 Hours can’t be respected.
D:- RDS doesn’t use RMAN backups

Q3. Is there a limit to the number of groups you can have?

C. Yes unless special permission granted
D. Yes for all users

Answer :- D

A. No charge. It is free.
B. Double the standard data transfer charge
C. Same as the standard data transfer charge
D. Half of the standard data transfer charge

Answer:- A
You are not charged for the data transfer incurred in replicating data between your source DB Instance and Read Replica.

Q5. Through which of the following interfaces is AWS Identity and Access Management available?
A) AWS Management Console
B) Command line interface (CLI)
C) IAM Query API
D) Existing libraries

A.Only through Command line interface (CLI)
