Sample Practice Exam Questions:

Sample Question 1:

[Question ID = HCC-AWS-PQ-1386]

The Company is running their IT environment in on-premise data centers. The Company is debating whether to use the Cloud Computing for their business application needs. Executive team is in a meeting to discuss and decide about their decision to embrace the Cloud. Executives seem to be worried about cost, security, ROI, capabilities, and ability to master the cloud administration. 

If you were a fly on the wall of this meeting room what would you say to your cousin fly?

(A) AWS environment is by default more secure than on-premise environments. 

(B) AWS environment cannot be more secured than on-premise environment because you own the building.

(C) AWS environment can be more secure than on-premise environment if well architected.

(D) AWS environment cannot achieve compliances as a cloud provider.

Correct Answer is C.

AWS environment can be more secure than on-premise environment if well architected.

[Question Difficulty Level = 65]

AWS environment can be more secure than on-premise environment if well architected because AWS provides several tools, capabilities, services, and market place solutions to secure your workload in AWS.

Sample Question 2:

[Question ID = HCC-AWS-PQ-1232]

The Startup has very little money but a lot of hope and potential. Their app is free for the customers. The app saves their user’s photos and converts it to thumbnails. The Startup wants to ensure that they can retrieve the actual photo and the thumbnail for 1 month. However, after 1 month, they are not too concerned about the thumbnail because they can recreate it if lost, however, they would like to keep it and not delete it and they can wait a few hours for the access to this file.

Which of the following approach will result in the most cost savings with regards to the thumbnail in operating their AWS environment?

(A) Configure S3 lifecycle to migrate data from S3 Standard to Glacier after 1 month.

(B) Configure S3 lifecycle to migrate data from S3 Standard to S3 RRS after 1 month.

(C) Configure S3 lifecycle to migrate data from S3 Standard to S3 IA after 1 month.

(D) Configure S3 lifecycle to migrate data from S3 Standard to S3 RRS after 1 month and back to S3 Standard after 6 months.

Correct Answer is A.

Configure S3 lifecycle to migrate data from S3 Standard to Glacier after 1 month.

[Question Difficulty Level = 75]

Configure S3 lifecycle to migrate data from S3 Standard to Glacier after 1 month.

S3 lifecycle policies allow you to migrate data from one class to another on a schedule. Moving data from S3 standard storage tier to other tiers such as S3 IA (Infrequently Accessed) or RRS (Reduced Redundancy Storage) class or Glacier class will result in substantial cost saving by trading off on higher durability of the data. 

Here, The Startup requirement is such that they need to have access to the actual photo and the thumbnail for 1 month and after that time they are less concerned about the durability and the amount of time it takes to access it. Glacier is extremely low cost storage solution for such a use case where it is acceptable that the access to data can take a few hours.
