A Data Scientist at work has come to you stating they need several very large servers in order to conduct an analysis of historical customer data. They will need the servers for about 24 hours, after which they will only need the results of the analysis saved to a file service. What benefit of cloud computing is relevant to this scenario?

  • Virtualization
  • Resource Pooling
  • On-demand infrastructure
  • IaaS

Your employer has a large team of developers that focus on developing an important set of internal business applications.

  • SaaS
  • IaaS
  • DaaS

True or false:

> It is not possible to install a server operating system in a hypervisor running on a desktop operating system

  • False
  • True

When reviewing different cloud models and vendors the security team at your employer suggests the company opt for a private cloud vendor. They state that because public cloud vendors place multiple customers data and computing resources on the same physical infrastructure there is a higher security risk.

  • vHost
  • Virtual Host Machine (VHM)
  • Sandbox

Which of the following is NOT a benefit of using Cloud Infrastructure?

  • The Cloud Provider will handle security on your behalf
  • Cloud Infrastructure provides elasticity and rapid scalability based on demand
  • Pay-as-you-go model requires a lower upfront investment for large amounts of infrastructure
