Example Questions

A travel company owning multiple SAN switches plans to introduce a core-to-edge design to its existing fabrics. The customer decided to buy DC04 SAN Directors. Which software solution provides a topology-centric view across their fabric SANs at lowest cost? A customer has performance problems during backup and restore sessions. The customer's dual- site SAN design is built on one single-mode fibre pair (per fabric) between the two sites. Which solution can improve the current bandwidth between the two sites, without requiring more physical fibre links? Scenario: The customer is a university with 20,000 students and 3,500 staff. They have been directed to reduce their overall IT spending for the next 3 years by 30%. A major issue is that most of the university's server and storage infrastructure is now over 3 years old and they need to show substantial return on investment before new hardware can be purchased. Their environment consists of HP BladeSystems c7000, with sixteen BL6S5c servers, a mixture of twelve Gl and four G5 servers. The G5 servers are the newest (less than a year old) while the Gl servers are now more than three years old. Most equipment was installed three years earlier, The interconnect modules in the C7000 Blade Enclosure for both the Ethernet and fibre connections are Pass Thru Modules. The storage is an EVA8000 with 50TB of disk, 30TB of Fibre Channel disk and 20TB of FATA disk. This too is over 3 years old. Connecting all the fibre components are two HP MDS9216i SAN Switches,Their entire server base is virtualized using ESX 3.5 utilizing VMware High Availability (HA) and DRS. All of the university's critical systems run on the BL685c Gl servers. The university requires a 24 x 7 uptime on all e-Learning systems including email. The university does not utilize any additional software tools to manage their systems other than VMware vCentre and HP CommandView. Questioning reveals the customer needs instantaneous access to archived data, which is an opportunity for Active Archive. Which solution should be suggested to this customer? Which encryption type is used for securing data in transit over IP networks? A consultant recently visited a customer at a paper manufacturing site. The company has a small IT staff that performs basic server and storage administration. The IT staff wants a simple way to diagnose system faults, perform basic configuration management and keep system software up- to-date. The paper manufacturer currently has EVA-based storage, a small SAN, and 10-15 servers. Two of these servers are VMware hosts, with 10-20 VMs per host running both Windows Server and SuSE Enterprise Linux operating systems. Which HP software should the consultant recommend to meet the IT staff's requirements? A customer provides their requirements for a storage solution.

Which information should the consultant request from the customer in order to verify the solution design and interoperability? (Select two.) A hospital customer needs to expand their capability to process and store medical images. A recent acquisition of another hospital and additional CT scanners has doubled their need for additional storage for these images. They are currently storing most of images on dedicated systems that are directly associated with the radiology departments on small SAN-based storage arrays. The IT director indicates they want a central repository for holding images until they are archived to long term storage. This central repository must be accessible by file sharing protocols so that the radiologists can access images at their workstation, even after an image has been initially read at the original scanner. This repository needs be able to add additional capacity without downtime. Which type of solution should you recommend?
