000-283 - Foundations of IBM Cloud Computing Architecture V3
Go back to IBM
Which statement is true about clustering in a cloud computing environment?
The number of nodes within a virtual cluster can grow or shrink dynamically.
Server consolidation and virtualization initiatives demand more bandwidth per physical system and wide area network environments. Bottlenecks are becoming more pervasive making it increasingly more difficult to spot and remove them in a timely and seamless way. Clearly this has a significant impact on the performance and even the availability of the enterprise network. What must be configured to prevent this?
Quality of service
The pay-as-you-go billing model is most likely to be used with which cloud service model?
Software as a Service
How can cloud computing improve service delivery?
By automating processes used to request and provision workloads
Which statement is true about non-functional requirements?
They can dictate placement of key cloud infrastructure components.
Which statement is true about IBM¡¯s Cloud Computing Reference Architecture V3?
It provides guidance based on common cloud deployment patterns.
What are two reasons that cloud computing is a good runtime environment for Systems of Engagement (SQE)? (Choose two.)
Upfront capital investment is eliminated with cloud's pay per use billing.
Rapid resource scaling to respond to a sudden increase in engaged customers.
How does server virtualization reduce cloud computing infrastructure investments?
Optimal server hardware utilization is achieved by consolidating under-utilized physical servers running one workload into fewer servers running several virtualized workloads.
How can the user experience be improved in a cloud computing environment?
Enable services to be accessible from anywhere and anytime
What is the purpose of the IBM Cloud Computing Reference Architecture V3 cloud enabled data center adoption pattern?
To describe how to build an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in a private cloud
How does provisioning take place in a hybrid cloud environment?
A rule-based work flow is usually in place which determines the best location for the workload.
Where is the private cloud deployed?
Internally behind the enterprise's security firewall, on-premise or off-premise
What is a benefit of standardization for cloud consumers or users?
Services are obtained faster and cheaper
Which cloud service model is most likely to use resource-based billing?
Infrastructure as a Service
Which initial plan gets run when a new service deployment instance is created from a service definition?
If the middleware is included with an OS image in a cloud computing environment, what must be changed every time the OS or middleware version has to be changed?
What is more important for computing, storage, and network hardware when used in a cloud computing management infrastructure where elasticity is of great importance?
What is a characteristic of Software as a Service?
Software is managed from a central location.
In which scenario is Platform as a Service most suitable?
An integrated development and runtime platform is required for specific workloads.
What are the two ways in which multi4enancy can be enabled by the network in cloud computing? (Choose two.)
Virtual Local Area Network
Virtual Routing and Forwarding
Which characteristics describe a cloud data center as opposed to a traditional data center?
Standardized management tools, highly automated, highly virtualized, standardized architecture
A hybrid cloud consists of which cloud types?
public and private
What is a benefit of using IBM's Cloud Computing Reference Architecture V3?
It saves clients time and money by providing the steps and components required for constructing a cloud implementation across all deployment models.
What are the two integration points that IBM SmartCloud Aggregator for Service Providers offers for a cloud service provider solution? (Choose two.)
Which statement describes economies of scale as it relates to IBM's Cloud Computing Reference Architecture V3 design principle?
Reuse management components by sharing a common management platform to deliver cloud services.
The capacity management process belongs to which ITIL handbook?
In which delivery model does the cloud consumer have little or no control over the implementation of services?
Software as a Service
Which hypervisor does IBM Virtual Server Protection support?
What is a routine compilation of the procedures and operations which the administrator or operator of the system carries out?
Which security capabilities are part of the Cloud Governance/Management macro-pattern of the Cloud Enabled Data Center adoption pattern?
Patch management and security compliance
What defines scalability related to cloud computing?
Sufficient capacity to handle growing user loads into the future
Which cloud computing feature is different when compared to traditional data center infrastructures?
Dynamic scaling of computing infrastructure available to a workload based upon measured demand
What are two cloud computing provisioning characteristics? (Choose two.)
Environments can be delivered with speed and efficiency
Automatically creates, prepares, and configures computing resources
What is the best example standardization achieved with a catalog of cloud services?
Offer a single version of an application server regardless of the OS selected by the consumer
When comparing cloud data centers to traditional data centers, which statement is most true?
Traditional data centers typically host applications on dedicated servers, while applications in a cloud data center typically run on shared resources in a virtualized environment.
Which statement is true about service catalogs?
The offerings in a service catalog could be deployed on various platforms and cloud types.
Which option best demonstrates a use case for block storage?
Given the context of the IBM Cloud Computing Reference Architecture V3, what architectural consideration is true regarding workload migration into a private cloud?
Workloads with fewer dependencies are good candidates to migrate to a cloud-based infrastructure.
Which statement is true about cloud computing architecture?
Virtual machines provisioned on a cloud can be provisioned using both SAN and NAS.
What has reduced administrative tasks in computer provisioning by 90% for some processes for adopters of cloud computing?
High capability of automation software
What is the benefit of using a service catalog in a cloud implementation?
To enforce a standard process for ordering and delivering IT services
What are two support system domains that relate to Platform Services Adoption Pattern? (Choose two.)
Business Support System
Operational Support System
What are two essential characteristics of a cloud computing model? (Choose two.)
What type of cloud model is provisioned for exclusive use by a specific selection of consumers from organizations that have shared concerns (e.g., mission, security requirements, policy, and compliance considerations)?
Which security capability is needed to prevent issues related to administrative users sharing login credentials to access sensitive applications and data?
Privileged Identity Management
Which capability is related to the discovery, selection, and subscription of external third-party services?
