What is the primary indicator for a poor performing cloud environment?
Slow cloud services response time
Which component is optional when building a Software as a Service solution?
What has reduced administrative tasks in computer provisioning by 90% for some processes for adopters of cloud computing?
High capability of automation software
Which scenario would be most appropriate for a private cloud?
A critical production workload
Which type of cloud solution do these security focuses relate to specifically? - Manage data center identities - Secure virtual machines - Patch default images - Monitor logs on all resources - Network isolation

In which delivery model does the cloud consumer have little or no control over the implementation of services?
Software as a Service
According to the Cloud Services Adoption Pattern, what is considered to be the set of services that make up the entry level for a Platform as a Service implementation?
Management of services through service catalog, automated service deployment and metering, resource
What is more important for computing, storage, and network hardware when used in a cloud computing management infrastructure where elasticity is of great importance?
[VERIFY] What is the emerging standard for environment-based patterns?
Which security capability is needed to prevent issues related to administrative users sharing login credentials to access sensitive applications and data?
Privileged Identity Management
What is included in cloud computing governance?
Auditing policies define rules to be deployed to auditing systems.
Which IBM application can monitor access to shared databases and block unauthorized access?
IBM InfoSphere Guardium
A company is implementing a cloud storage solution that offers backup services for employee critical data. The company is funding each employee up to $5 per month, and any excess usage will be charged per employee. What is the best option for this scenario based on cloud computing billing (metering/measuring) models?
[VERIFY] What is an advantage of Storage Area Network (SAN) virtualization in cloud computing?
Centralized stored data improves utilization and reduces storage growth.
Given the context of the IBM Cloud Computing Reference Architecture V4, 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
What are two business advantages of cloud computing?
Virtualization:abstracting physical resources away from their underlying hardware resources in order to improve IT control.
Pervasiveness:improving customer experience by enabling services to be accessed fromanywhere, anytime, and on any device.
Which IBM cloud offering provides flexibility and choice with options to use bare metal, vitalized dedicated, or shared servers?
