#6. A customer is deploying a new application and needs to choose an AWS Region. Which of the following factors could influence the customer’s decision?

Data sovereignty, an idea that certain data is subject to a country’s laws and where it is stored within certain borders, is becoming more of a challenge for businesses as they move to the cloud.

#7. Which storage service can be used as a low-cost option for hosting static websites?

Deploy a static website using Amazon S3. Amazon S3 will provide the origin for your website as well as storage for your static content.


#8. Which Amazon EC2 instance pricing model can provide discounts of up to 90%?

Amazon EC2 Spot Instances let you take advantage of unused EC2 capacity in the AWS cloud. Spot Instances are available at up to a 90% discount compared to On-Demand prices.


#9. What is the AWS customer responsible for according to the AWS shared responsibility model?

You can impose additional controls, such as protection of data at rest, and protection of data in transit, or introduce a layer of opacity between services from AWS and your platform. The opacity layer can include data encryption, data integrity authentication, software- and data-signing, secure time-stamping, and more.

AWS Security Best Practices

#10. Which of the following AWS Cloud services can be used to run a customer-managed relational database?

The majority of SAP solutions use a customer-managed model on Amazon EC2. Installation, configuration, administration, and backup and recovery of the database are done by either the customer or a partner.


#11. A company is looking for a scalable data warehouse solution. Which of the following AWS solutions would meet the company’s needs?

More customers pick Amazon Redshift than any other cloud data warehouse
Redshift powers analytical workloads for Fortune 500 companies, startups, and everything in between. Companies like Lyft have grown with Redshift from startups to multi-billion dollar enterprises.


#12. Which statement best describes Elastic Load Balancing?

Elastic Load Balancing automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple targets, such as Amazon EC2 instances, containers, IP addresses, and Lambda functions. It can handle the varying load of your application traffic in a single Availability Zone or across multiple Availability Zones. Elastic Load Balancing offers three types of load balancers that all feature the high availability, automatic scaling, and robust security necessary to make your applications fault tolerant.


#13. Which of the following are valid ways for a customer to interact with AWS services?

AWS consists of many cloud services that you can use in combinations tailored to your business or organizational needs. This section introduces the major AWS services by category. To access the services, you can use the AWS Management Console, the Command Line Interface, or Software Development Kits (SDKs).


#14. The AWS Cloud’s multiple Regions are an example of:

As software-as-a-service (SaaS) organizations grow and begin to extend their global reach, they must consider how their larger geographic footprint will shape and influence the architecture of their systems. Operations, deployment, agility, security, and scale all can be impacted by the move to a geographically distributed SaaS model.


#15. Which of the following AWS services can be used to serve large amounts of online video content with the lowest possible latency?

#16. Which one of this is not an Infrastructure Service?

Container Services: Services in this category typically run on separate
Amazon EC2 or other infrastructure instances, but sometimes you don’t
manage the operating system or the platform layer. AWS provides a managed service for these application “containers”. You are responsible
for setting up and managing network controls, such as firewall rules, and
for managing platform-level identity and access management separately
from IAM. Examples of container services include Amazon Relational
Database Services (Amazon RDS), Amazon Elastic Map Reduce (Amazon
EMR) and AWS Elastic Beanstalk

#17. Which one of this is not an Abstracted Service?

Abstracted Services: This category includes high-level storage,
database, and messaging services, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service
(Amazon S3), Amazon Glacier, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Simple
Queuing Service (Amazon SQS), and Amazon Simple Email Service
(Amazon SES). These services abstract the platform or management layer
on which you can build and operate cloud applications. You access the
endpoints of these abstracted services using AWS APIs, and AWS
manages the underlying service components or the operating system on
which they reside. You share the underlying infrastructure, and abstracted
services provide a multi- tenant platform which isolates your data in a
secure fashion and provides for powerful integration with IAM.

#18. which one is no a Trusted Advisor recommendation:

#19. Which one is not a good practice?

Create separate AWS accounts for each autonomous
part of the organization. You can assign permissions
and policies under each account.

#20. Best practices: 3 different AWS customers in the same organization and with the same duties should…

For example, let’s assume that IAM user John is responsible for backups within an organization, and needs to access objects in the Amazon S3 bucket called Archives. You can give John permissions directly so he can access theArchives bucket. But then your organization places Sally and Betty on the same team as John. While you can assign user permissions individually to John, Sally, and Betty to give them access to the Archives bucket, assigning the permissions to a group and placing John, Sally, and Betty in that group will be easier to manage and maintain. If additional users require the same access, you can give it to them by adding them to the group. When a user no longer needs access to a resource, you can remove them from the groups that provide access to that resource.

#21. Web servers running on Amazon EC2 access a legacy application running in a corporate data center. What term would describe this model?

Enterprise environments are often a mix of cloud, on-premises data centers, and edge locations. Hybrid cloud architectures help organizations integrate their on-premises and cloud operations to support a broad spectrum of use cases using a common set of cloud services, tools, and APIs across on-premises and cloud environments.


#22. What is the benefit of using AWS managed services, such as Amazon ElastiCache and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS)?

#24. Which of the following Identity and Access Management (IAM) entities is associated with an access key ID and secret access key when using AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI)?
