Which feature of vSphere 6.x enables organizations to move virtual machines across data centers?
Long Distance vMotion
Which vSphere 6.x storage service provides array-based operations at the virtual disk level?
You are planning to use shared storage for your evaluation of vSphere. Your colleague is describing a storage topology that can be built on a dedicated, 4Gbps, 8Gbps, or 16Gbps network composed of two fabrics for redundancy. What is the name of this type of shared storage?
Which statement about standard switches is true?
Bridges traffic internally between virtual machines in the same port group.
What vCenter feature does Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) use during the automated load balancing of virtual machines?
What is the minimum number of virtual NICs that you can configure for a virtual machine?
What is the name of the logical volume that vSphere 6.x uses to store virtual machines files?
Logical Unit Number (LUN)
What are two advantages of Network I/O Control? (Choose two.)
Performs load-based teaming.
Enforces network bandwidth limit on the virtual distributed switch.
A consultant is meeting the COO of a new client to help the company consider implementing data center virtualization. The COO asks the consultant to explain the benefits of virtualization. Which are three benefits of data center virtualization with vSphere 6.x? (Choose three.)
