    • Design Cost-Optimized Architectures
    • Design High-Performing Architectures
    • Design Resilient Architectures
Question 1 of 15

Your application is primarily involved in web serving and content management, experiencing variable traffic throughout the day with occasional spikes. Keeping cost optimization in mind, which EC2 instance family is best suited for this workload?

  • Memory Optimized

  • Accelerated Computing

  • Compute Optimized

  • General Purpose

Question 2 of 15

A multinational enterprise has separate accounts for development and production environments to enhance security and operational efficiency. Developers need to access cloud resources in the production environment sporadically to perform troubleshooting. As a solutions architect, what approach would you suggest to facilitate these occasional access requirements while maintaining stringent security controls?

  • Provide distinct user credentials for each developer that grant access to the necessary services in the separate environment, with a scheduled monthly rotation policy.

  • Create identically named roles with necessary permissions in both the development and separate environment accounts.

  • Adjust the policies attached to resources in the separate environment to directly authorize access for identities from the development environment.

  • Implement trust relationships between the organization's accounts using roles with permissions to access necessary services, allowing for temporary credential assumption through a trusted federation.

Question 3 of 15

A retail company wants to deploy a mission-critical web application that must remain operational even in the event of an Availability Zone outage. The application requires an RDBMS for transaction processing and should handle failover automatically without any manual intervention. Which AWS service should the company use to meet these requirements?

  • Utilize Amazon RDS with Multi-AZ deployments for high availability and automatic failover.

  • Implement Amazon Redshift with Concurrency Scaling features for database needs.

  • Leverage Amazon Aurora with cross-region replication for database high availability.

  • Deploy Amazon DynamoDB with global tables across multiple regions.

Question 4 of 15

What is the purpose of using multiple Availability Zones for deploying applications on AWS?

  • To cache static content closer to users and reduce latency.

  • To increase the overall performance of compute instances by equally distributing the workload.

  • To provide high availability and fault tolerance for applications by distributing resources within a region across physically separated data centers.

  • To serve as a single point of contact and management for global resources in multiple regions.

Question 5 of 15

A company is deploying a web application in AWS, which expects varying levels of traffic throughout the day. The application must handle sudden spikes in traffic and maintain high availability. Which solution should the Solutions Architect recommend to meet these requirements?

  • Use Amazon CloudFront to cache static content and minimize the load on the web servers.

  • Deploy an Application Load Balancer in front of the web application across multiple Availability Zones.

  • Integrate Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS) to queue the incoming requests to manage traffic spikes.

  • Implement a Network Load Balancer to manage the incoming traffic to the application.

Question 6 of 15

Which service would be most suitable for managing incoming web traffic, allowing for advanced request routing based on the content of the traffic itself?

  • Application Load Balancer

  • Simple Storage Service

  • Elastic Load Balancing Network Load Balancer

  • Elastic Load Balancing Classic Load Balancer

Question 7 of 15

Your application is hosted on a fleet of EC2 instances that serve HTTP/HTTPS traffic. The application experiences sudden and unpredictable spikes in traffic that can overwhelm a single server. Which type of load balancer should you use to ensure high availability and elasticity while also enabling advanced request routing capabilities?

  • Classic Load Balancer

  • Network Load Balancer

  • Application Load Balancer

  • AWS Global Accelerator

Question 8 of 15

Amazon Aurora is more cost-effective than Amazon Redshift for large-scale data warehousing and complex querying of columnar data

  • False

  • True

Question 9 of 15

A company utilizing a managed relational database service is facing performance bottlenecks during sporadic peaks in read traffic. They need to improve query performance during these periods without incurring excessive costs. What should they implement to handle the varying read loads effectively?

  • Scale up the primary instance to handle the increased load.

  • Add an additional standby replica to distribute the load.

  • Introduce a caching service to handle the read traffic.

  • Create read replicas to distribute the incoming read requests.

Question 10 of 15

Your client is planning to launch an online platform to process and store sensitive data. There is a high likelihood of exposure to volumetric network attacks that could saturate the bandwidth of their internet-facing infrastructure. Which service would you recommend to safeguard their platform against such network and transport layer attacks?

  • Implementing Identity Center for user authentication

  • Amazon Shield Advanced

  • Configuring VPC security group rules

  • Amazon Inspector

Question 11 of 15

The root user of an AWS account is the only user that can enable MFA on their own account.

  • True

  • False

Question 12 of 15

A company has established a monthly cloud expenditure threshold of $5,000. They need a service that will enable them to set this threshold, track their expenditure against it in real-time, and send alerts should their spending be projected to exceed the threshold. Which service is most suitable for achieving this goal?

  • Budget management tool that sends alerts on potential overspends

  • Service for cost and usage visualization and analytics

  • Cloud resource optimization recommendation platform

  • Detailed report generating tool for cost and resource utilization

Question 13 of 15

An application requires intelligent routing capabilities to distribute HTTP and HTTPS traffic based on the content of the request. Which load balancing option allows routing decisions to be made based on elements such as the URL path provided by the client?

  • Application Load Balancer

  • Network Load Balancer

  • Classic Load Balancer

  • Amazon CloudFront

Question 14 of 15

A company is building a centralized logging solution that will aggregate logs from various microservices. Each microservice will publish log messages to a central system, which will then store the logs for analysis and monitoring purposes. Given the need for high throughput and the ability to handle spikes in log data volume without losing messages, which service should the Architect recommend for collecting log data?

  • Amazon Glacier

  • Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose

  • Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS)

  • Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) Read Replicas

Question 15 of 15

When creating IAM policies, what approach ensures that permissions are not overly permissive while maintaining necessary access for users to perform their job functions?

  • Disabling logging to streamline permissions management

  • Granting only the permissions required to perform a task

  • Using predefined managed policies exclusively

  • Assigning all available permissions to avoid access issues
