C2030-283 - Foundations of IBM Cloud Computing Architecture V3 Exam
Go back to IBM
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.
Where is the private cloud deployed?
Internally behind the enterprise's security firewall, on-premise or off-premise
What type of cloud computing environment provides and manages some capabilities in-house and has others provided externally?
Given the context of the IBM Cloud Computing Reference Architecture V3, which IBM solution allows rapid integration to existing Platform as a Service workloads?
IBM WebSphere Cast Iron
How does provisioning take place in a hybrid cloud environment?
A rule-based workflow is usually in place which determines the best location for the workload.
Why is it important to document and analyze existing IT processes at the beginning of a cloud computing project?
It identifies areas where efficiency improvements and automation can be introduced using cloud.
What is a valid integration strategy to an existing IBM endpoint security solution when IBM Tivoli Service Automation Manager (TSAM) is used to create an Infrastructure as a Service cloud?
Install an agent using its software stack installation capability. The endpoint solution will handle the rest of the interaction.
Which statement is true about clustering in a cloud computing environment?
The number of nodes within a virtual cluster can grow or shrink dynamically.
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
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.
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
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.
Given the context of the IBM Cloud Computing Reference Architecture V3, what are two valid integration use cases when using IBM SmartCloud Cost Management to integrate to existing billing and charging systems in a cloud service provider environment? (Choose two.)
Usage data collection
Batched data file generation
Which security capability is needed to prevent issues related to administrative users sharing login credentials to access sensitive applications and data?
Privileged Identity Management
How can cloud computing improve service delivery?
By automating processes used to request and provision workloads
Given the context of the IBM Cloud Computing Reference Architecture V3, which two integration use cases are best addressed by IBM WebSphere Cast Iron? (Choose two.)
Exposition of services
Data migration to Software as a Service providers
What are two essential characteristics of a cloud computing model? (Choose two.)
Which costing model is leveraged to provide cost efficiency in the public cloud computing model?
Which component is needed to integrate a private cloud with a public cloud like IBM SmartCloud Enterprise or Amazon EC2?
IBM WebSphere Cast Iron
Which characteristics describe a cloud data center as opposed to a traditional data center?
Standardized management tools, highly automated, highly virtualized, standardized architecture
Which statement is true about non-functional requirements?
They include extensibility and security requirements.
What is the difference between elasticity and scalability?
Elasticity is the ability to handle short term spikes of demand while maintaining acceptable performance. Scalability is having sufficient capacity to handle planned future demand.
Why is a change management process important in a cloud environment?
The combination of a cloud delivery model and virtualization makes the infrastructure very fluid and change rapidly.
What is the benefit of using a service catalog in a cloud implementation?
To enforce a standard process for ordering and delivering IT services
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?
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.
Which hypervisor does IBM Virtual Server Protection support?
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
How does virtualization create a more agile and responsive cloud computing infrastructure?
The supply of virtualized server, storage, and network resources can be dynamically provisioned, moved, or deprovisioned as demand changes.
In which delivery model does the cloud consumer have little or no control over the implementation of services?
Software as a Service
Which component of a cloud computing solution can assist in automating IT processes?
In a hybrid cloud computing model, where can peak loads and less critical applications be moved in order to improve service delivery and cost of computing?
What are two support system domains that relate to Platform Services Adoption Pattern? (Choose two.)
Business Support System
Operational Support System
