Question 2 of 15

A company is expanding its cloud infrastructure to support a new remote office location. To ensure that resources in this new location can securely communicate with the main data center, the cloud engineer has been tasked to configure the networking in such a way that it mimics a traditional network topology within the cloud. What is the MOST appropriate solution to meet this requirement?

  • Utilize public IP addresses exclusively for all instances in the cloud to ensure the new remote office can access the resources without additional configuration.

  • Install dedicated physical routers at the remote office location to handle the traffic between the cloud and the main data center.

  • Configure a direct peering connection between the cloud provider's default network and the company's on-premises network to establish communication with the remote office.

  • Deploy a VPC with defined subnets, route tables, and a virtual private gateway to enable secure communication between the remote office and the main data center.

Question 3 of 15

An organization is evaluating a transition to a cloud-based system for its sales and marketing teams. The new system must deliver a seamless experience across multiple device types, offer high configurability for custom workflows, and offload the maintenance of underlying hardware. Which variation of cloud service models would most effectively meet their operational and strategic goals?

  • Hybrid model leveraging both IaaS and PaaS for device flexibility

  • PaaS configured for cross-platform accessibility

  • SaaS with high customization capabilities

  • IaaS with a focus on mobile device integration

Question 4 of 15

An organization maintains a cloud-hosted database that requires backups to be able to restore operations to the state at the end of any given business day in the event of a failure. Recovery of the data must be possible within 2 hours to meet their Recovery Time Objective (RTO). Which backup policy should the organization implement to BEST meet these requirements?

  • Hourly incremental backups with a weekly full backup.

  • Continuous snapshots throughout the day with no full backups.

  • Weekly full backups and daily differential backups.

  • Daily full backups with offsite storage replication.

Question 5 of 15

A company is deploying a web application in the cloud. The cloud security engineer has been tasked with ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of the application's data in transit. Which configuration should the engineer implement to secure the communication between the web application and its clients?

  • Enable full disk encryption on the servers hosting the web application.

  • Implement TLS for the web server hosting the application.

  • Use tokenization of sensitive data fields within the application's database.

  • Apply data masking to the application's output to obscure sensitive data.

Question 6 of 15

An organization is reviewing security solutions for their cloud-based hosts. The security team wants a solution that not only detects potential intrusions by analyzing system events and log files but also has the capability to automatically block suspicious activity in real time without human intervention. Which type of solution should the organization implement on their hosts?

  • Host-based Intrusion Detection System (HIDS)

  • Anti-virus software

  • Host-based Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS)

  • Standard network firewall

Question 7 of 15

An organization is planning to deploy several applications on a cloud platform. The applications have varying workloads with periods of low usage followed by spikes in demand. Which method of allocation would BEST handle these workload requirements while optimizing resource utilization?

  • Limiting

  • Dynamic allocation

  • Fixed allocation

  • Oversubscription

  • Reservations

Question 8 of 15

An international e-commerce company is planning for an upcoming Black Friday sale, which historically causes a significant increase in website traffic and transactions. To ensure that the cloud infrastructure can handle the increased load without performance degradation, what scalability approach should the cloud team primarily focus on?

  • Cloud bursting

  • Adding high-speed storage to improve I/O performance

  • Upgrading existing instances with more powerful CPUs

  • Auto-scaling

Question 9 of 15

A cloud administrator finds that an application deployed via an Infrastructure as Code template is not connecting to a database server. The security settings and network configuration of the server are correct. During deployment, inputs for the template are predefined with no apparent errors. Which of the following should the administrator examine FIRST to resolve this issue?

  • Update the version of the orchestration tool used for deployment

  • Increase the CPU and memory allocation for the application

  • Review the database connection string in the template

  • Change the script execution policy in the cloud environment

Question 10 of 15

When conducting performance capacity planning, it is acceptable to solely base future resource requirements on immediate hardware and software needs without considering trend analysis and user density.

  • True

  • False

Question 11 of 15

A company is deploying a multi-cloud solution with interconnected services. To ensure predictable network traffic flow, they need specific routes to remain constant so that certain compliance requirements are met. Which routing method should be implemented in this scenario?

  • Static routing

  • Routing Information Protocol (RIP)

  • Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)

  • Dynamic routing

Question 12 of 15

Which type of storage should be used for frequently accessed data that requires high-speed read/write operations and low latency?

  • Tape drives

  • Network-attached storage (NAS)

  • Hard disk drives (HDDs)

  • Solid-state drives (SSDs)

Question 13 of 15

A developer is automating the deployment of resources in the cloud using a script. To comply with best practices for security, which approach should the developer use to handle credentials required by the script to authenticate with the cloud service provider's API?

  • Store the password in environment variables and retrieve it within the script at runtime.

  • Embed the password in a configuration file that the script can read from during execution.

  • Retain the credentials within the script but encrypt them before storing.

  • Use a password vault to store credentials and access them dynamically when the script runs.

Question 14 of 15

A company is preparing to deploy a fleet of virtual machines using a custom image that contains their proprietary software stack. The deployment needs to enable rapid scaling and consistent configuration across all instances. Which of the following deployment methods should the cloud professional use to meet these requirements?

  • Utilize templates that include the company's software stack for deploying the VM instances.

  • Configure a container orchestration platform to manage the deployment of VMs.

  • Adopt a serverless architecture to automatically handle the deployment and scaling of VMs.

  • Use a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering and install the proprietary software stack post-deployment.

  • Manually provision each virtual machine with the required configurations.

  • Set up multiple VMs in a hyperconverged infrastructure without a custom image.

Question 15 of 15

A company is deploying a mission-critical application in the cloud that requires high availability.
