A customer has two Power System servers, each in a different data center, which the customer would like to use ato provide a highly available enviroment. The data centers are across the street from each other and share TCP/IP and SAN enviroments. The customer recently purchased PowerHA SystemMirror to manage availablilty. Both system are capable of running their mission-critical applications, but they have different types of storage. one system has its data stored on a DS8800, while the other used an XIV.

Which system will support the customer requirement using the least amount of rack space? A customer is deploying highly critical Web applications with dynamic workload characteristics on multiple Power Systems servers. Which features of PowerVM can help the customer to deploy the applications? A customer has a Power Systems 750 with PowerVM Standard Edition and Active Memory Expansion (AME). They have these LPARs defined: In which LPARs is AME supported? Which solution provides a cost effective to tape backup? A customer wants to know how to find the latest updates for their particular system. Which of the following should be recommended? A customer is planning to deploy several Web servers in a dedicated partition running AIX 6.1. What would be a benefit of using Workload Partitions (WPARs) in this environment? A customer is implementing multiple partitions on a Power 780 system. They will use mksysb to back up AIX and want to minimize the number of tape cartridges used for the backup. Which solution addresses the customer concerns? A customer has a new Power 720 with PowerVM Standard Edition. They plan to migrate their singlepartition POWER5 550 to the new Power 720. How can the customer migrate from the POWER5 550 to the Power 720 with minimal effort and down time? Ac ustomer wants to ru serveral appliacation servers. They will deploy WebSphere Application Server(WAS) on AIX 6.1 and Tomcat running on AIX 5.3. Which solution allows improved system utilization while minimizing management efforts? A customer needs to share large files across three Power Systems servers to create and validate complex automotive designs. What IBM solution should be recommended? Which AIX Edition includesall components nessary for Live Application mobility? A petroleum company is replacing their reservoir modeling High Performance Computing solution with a newer, faster solution. The software runs on AIX 6.1. The current environment is based on the same software running on a cluster of Power 550 systems. They are planning to move to the Power 755 systems, adding 50% in performance when compared to the existing solution. Which performance metric should be used to estimate the number of machines and cores required? A customer wants to run DB2 on a Power 780 with uncapped partitions. They have licensed DB2 for 32 of the 64 active cores, and will use it in multiple partitions. How can the customer ensure that the number of licenses purchased for DB2 is not exceeded?
