Multi Choice Questions
SAMPLE QUESTION 1
A company is trying to analyze the costs applied to their AWS account recently. Which of the following provides them the most granular data about their AWS costs and usage?
AWS Cost & Usage Report (CORRECT ANSWER)
Amazon Machine Image
AWS Cost Explorer
The AWS Cost & Usage Report contains the most comprehensive set of AWS cost and usage data available, including additional metadata about AWS services, pricing, and reservations (e.g., Amazon EC2 Reserved Instances (RIs)). The AWS Cost and Usage Report tracks your AWS usage and provides information about your use of AWS resources and estimated costs for that usage. You can configure this report to present the data hourly or daily. It is updated at least once a day until it is finalized at the end of the billing period. The AWS Cost and Usage Report gives you the most granular insight possible into your costs and usage, and it is the source of truth for the billing pipeline. It can be used to develop advanced custom metrics using business intelligence, data analytics, and third-party cost optimization tools.
“Amazon CloudWatch” is incorrect. Amazon CloudWatch is a monitoring service for AWS cloud resources and the applications you run on AWS. You can use Amazon CloudWatch to collect and track metrics, collect and monitor log files, set alarms, and automatically react to changes in your AWS resources. Amazon CloudWatch can monitor AWS resources such as Amazon EC2 instances, Amazon DynamoDB tables, and Amazon RDS DB instances, as well as custom metrics generated by your applications and services, and any log files your applications generate. You can use Amazon CloudWatch to gain system-wide visibility into resource utilization, application performance, and operational health. You can use these insights to react and keep your application running smoothly.
“Amazon Machine Image” is incorrect. An Amazon Machine Image is used to launch Amazon EC2 instances.
“AWS Cost Explorer” is incorrect. AWS Cost Explorer helps you visualize, understand, and manage your AWS costs and usage over time. This is done via an intuitive interface that enables you to quickly create custom reports that include charts and tabular data. You can analyze your cost and usage data in aggregate (such as total costs and usage across all accounts) down to granular details (for example, m2.2xlarge costs within the Dev account tagged “project: Blackthorn”). This option is incorrect because the AWS Cost & Usage Report provides more granular data about your AWS costs and usage than what the AWS Cost Explorer provides. The AWS Cost & Usage Report is your one-stop shop for accessing the most detailed information available about your AWS costs and usage.
SAMPLE QUESTION 2
A company has developed a media transcoding application in AWS. The application is designed to recover quickly from hardware failures. Which one of the following types of instance would be the most cost-effective choice to use?
Spot instances (CORRECT ANSWER)
The question stated that the application is designed to recover quickly from failures, therefore it can handle any interruption may occur with the instance. Hence, we can use the Spot instances for this application. Spot instances provide a discount (up to 90%) off the On-Demand price.
The Spot price is determined by long-term trends in supply and demand for EC2 spare capacity. If the Spot price exceeds the maximum price you specify for a given instance or if capacity is no longer available, your instance will automatically be interrupted.
Spot Instances are the most cost-effective choice if you are flexible about when your applications run and if your applications can be interrupted. For example, Spot Instances are well-suited for data analysis, batch jobs, background processing, and optional tasks.
The other options are incorrect:
“On-Demand instances” is incorrect. On-demand is not a cost-effective choice.
“Reserved instances” is incorrect. Reserved Instances provide a discount (up to 75%) compared to On-Demand instance. Even if the question stated that the company needs the instances for a year, the best answer should still be Spot Instances as they offer a greater overall cost reduction (up to 90 %) than Reserved Instances.
“Dedicated instances” is incorrect. Dedicated instances are used when you want your instances to be physically isolated at the host hardware level from instances that belong to other AWS accounts.
SAMPLE QUESTION 3
Which AWS Service enables customers to set up an AWS billing alarm to inform them when their spending exceeds a certain threshold?
AWS Cost Explorer
Amazon CloudWatch (CORRECT ANSWER)
Amazon CloudWatch is the AWS service that allows you to monitor the usage of your AWS resources. CloudWatch collects metrics, and allows you to create alarms based on those metrics. You can use CloudWatch to monitor your estimated AWS charges. When you enable the monitoring of estimated charges for your AWS account, the estimated charges are calculated and sent several times daily to CloudWatch as metric data. Billing metric data includes the estimated charges for every service in AWS that you use, in addition to the estimated overall total of your AWS charges. The alarm triggers when your account billing exceeds the threshold you specify.
The other options are incorrect
AWS Cost Explorer is incorrect. AWS Cost Explorer is used to view and analyze your costs and usage. You can explore your usage and costs using graphs and the Cost Explorer cost and usage reports.
Consolidated Billing is incorrect. The consolidated billing is a feature in AWS Organizations that enables you to consolidate billing and payment for multiple AWS accounts.
Amazon Inspector is incorrect. Amazon Inspector is an automated security assessment service to help improve the security and compliance of applications deployed on AWS
SAMPLE QUESTION 4
Which of the following AWS Services helps with planning application migration to the AWS Cloud?
AWS Migration Hub
AWS Snowball Migration Service
AWS Application Discovery Service (CORRECT ANSWER)
AWS Application Discovery Service helps systems integrators quickly and reliably plan application migration projects by automatically identifying applications running in on-premises data centers, their associated dependencies, and their performance profiles. Planning data center migrations can involve thousands of workloads that are often deeply interdependent. Application discovery and dependency mapping are important early first steps in the migration process, but these tasks are difficult to perform at scale due to the lack of automated tools. AWS Application Discovery Service automatically collects configuration and usage data from servers, storage, and networking equipment to develop a list of applications, how they perform, and how they are interdependent. This information helps reduce the complexity and time in planning your cloud migration.
The other options are incorrect:
“AWS Migration Hub” is incorrect. AWS Migration Hub provides a single location to track the progress of application migrations across multiple AWS and partner solutions.
“AWS Snowball Migration Service” is incorrect. Snowball is a petabyte-scale data transport solution that uses secure devices to transfer large amounts of data into and out of the AWS Cloud.
“AWS DMS” is incorrect. AWS Database Migration Service (DMS) is used to migrate your data to and from most widely used commercial and open-source databases. AWS DMS supports homogeneous migrations such as Oracle to Oracle, as well as heterogeneous migrations between different database platforms, such as Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server to Amazon Aurora.
SAMPLE QUESTION 5
A company has hundreds of VPCs in multiple AWS Regions worldwide. What service does AWS offer to simplify the connection management among the VPCs?
AWS Transit Gateway (CORRECT ANSWER)
AWS Transit Gateway is a network transit hub that simplifies how customers interconnect all of their VPCs, across thousands of AWS accounts and into their on-premises networks. Customers can easily and quickly connect into a single centrally-managed gateway, and rapidly growing the size of their network. Transit Gateway acts as a hub that controls how traffic is routed among all the connected networks which act like spokes. This hub and spoke model significantly simplifies management and reduces operational costs because each network only has to connect to the Transit Gateway and not to every other network. Any new VPC is simply connected to the Transit Gateway and is then automatically available to every other network that is connected to the Transit Gateway. This ease of connectivity makes it easy to scale networks as business grow.
The other options are incorrect:
“VPC Peering” is incorrect. A VPC peering connection is a networking connection between two VPCs that enables customers to route traffic between them using private IPv4 addresses or IPv6 addresses. Instances in either VPC can communicate with each other as if they are within the same network. Using VPC peering to connect hundreds of VPCs is very complex and time consuming because customers need to peer each Amazon VPC to each other manually.
With AWS Transit Gateway, each VPC only has to connect to the Transit Gateway and not to every other VPC. Customers simply connect each Amazon VPC to the AWS Transit Gateway, and the Gateway will route traffic to and from each VPC.
“Amazon Connect” is incorrect. Amazon Connect is a cloud-based contact center service that makes it easy for businesses to deliver customer service at low cost.
“Security Groups” is incorrect. Security Groups are not used to connect Amazon VPCs. Security Groups are an Amazon VPC networking feature that allows customers to control instance traffic.
