- Question 1 of 12
You are running an Auto Scaling Group (ASG) with an Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) and a fleet of EC2 instances. Health checks are configured on the ASG to use EC2 status checks. The ELB has determined that an EC2 instance is unhealthy and has removed it from service. However, you noticed that the instance is still running and has not been terminated by the ASG.
What would be an explanation for this behavior?CorrectIncorrect
- Question 2 of 12
An Auto Scaling Group is unable to respond quickly enough to load changes resulting in lost messages from another application tier. The messages are typically around 128KB in size.
What is the best design option to prevent the messages from being lost?CorrectIncorrect
- Question 3 of 12
Your company would like to restrict the ability of most users to change their own passwords whilst continuing to allow a select group of users within specific user groups.
What is the best way to achieve this? (choose 2)CorrectIncorrect
- Question 4 of 12
A Solutions Architect has been asked to suggest a solution for analyzing data in S3 using standard SQL queries. The solution should use a serverless technology.
Which AWS service can the Architect use?CorrectIncorrect
- Question 5 of 12
Your organization has a data lake on S3 and you need to find a solution for performing in-place queries of the data assets in the data lake. The requirement is to perform both data discovery and SQL querying, and complex queries from a large number of concurrent users using BI tools.
What is the BEST combination of AWS services to use in this situation? (choose 2)CorrectIncorrect
- Question 6 of 12
You have recently enabled Access Logs on your Application Load Balancer (ALB). One of your colleagues would like to process the log files using a hosted Hadoop service. What configuration changes and services can be leveraged to deliver this requirement?CorrectIncorrect
- Question 7 of 12
A systems integration company that helps customers migrate into AWS repeatedly build large, standardized architectures using several AWS services. The Solutions Architects have documented the architectural blueprints for these solutions and are looking for a method of automating the provisioning of the resources.
Which AWS service would satisfy this requirement?CorrectIncorrect
- Question 8 of 12
A company is deploying a big data and analytics workload. The analytics will be run from a fleet of thousands of EC2 instances across multiple AZs. Data needs to be stored on a shared storage layer that can be mounted and accessed concurrently by all EC2 instances. Latency is not a concern however extremely high throughput is required.
What storage layer would be most suitable for this requirement?CorrectIncorrect
- Question 9 of 12
Your company has offices in several locations around the world. Each office utilizes resources deployed in the geographically closest AWS region. You would like to implement connectivity between all of the VPCs so that you can provide full access to each other’s resources. As you are security conscious you would like to ensure the traffic is encrypted and does not traverse the public Internet. The topology should be many-to-many to enable all VPCs to access the resources in all other VPCs.
How can you successfully implement this connectivity using only AWS services? (choose 2)CorrectIncorrect
- Question 10 of 12
You are building an application that will collect information about user behavior. The application will rapidly ingest large amounts of dynamic data and requires very low latency. The database must be scalable without incurring downtime. Which database would you recommend for this scenario?CorrectIncorrect
- Question 11 of 12
An application you are designing receives and processes files. The files are typically around 4GB in size and the application extracts metadata from the files which typically takes a few seconds for each file. The pattern of updates is highly dynamic with times of little activity and then multiple uploads within a short period of time.
What architecture will address this workload the most cost efficiently?CorrectIncorrect
- Question 12 of 12
An Architect is designing a serverless application that will accept images uploaded by users from around the world. The application will make API calls to back-end services and save the session state data of the user to a database.
Which combination of services would provide a solution that is cost-effective while delivering the least latency?CorrectIncorrect
