The third version of the Virtual Machines Appliance (VMWare) is Advanced Design. This version is a supplement to the 3.0 version and is required for servers running on Microsoft Windows or an Apple Macintosh OS X. This lab includes four different kinds of exams: a security lab, a performance lab, a network lab, and a diagnostics lab. All the books and handbooks related to the design topics are included. In addition to the four exams there is an additional twenty-one-page lab manual that you will find very useful for understanding specific VMWare components.
Question No 1:
An architect is designing a new vSphere platform to meet a list of requirements from the security team. Which two requirements would be classified as non-functional requirements? (Choose two.)
A. Migration of virtual machines between hosts must be encrypted
B. Log information must be verbose to support incident resolution
C. Critical events generated within the platform must be logged to an external Syslog service
D. Data integrity must be ensured
E. A common content library must be maintained across all data centers
Answer: B C
Question No 2:
An architect is tasked with expanding an existing VMware software-defined data center (SDDC) solution so that it can be used to deliver a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) service off-shore development activities.
The production environment is currently delivered across two geographically dispersed data centers. The two data centers are currently connected to each other through multiple diversely routed, high bandwidth and low latency links. The current operations management components are deployed to a dedicated management cluster that is configured with N+1 redundancy. The current VMware software-defined data center (SDDC) has a monthly availability target of 99.5%, which includes all management components.
The customer requires that the new solution scale to support the concurrent running of 500 persistent virtual desktops. The virtual desktops must not share the same virtual infrastructure as existing virtual machines, but can be managed using the same VMware operations management components. Any new VDI service management components must be installed into the management cluster. There is no requirement to back up the virtual desktops because all relevant user data is stored centrally. The VDI service is providing business critical services and must have an availability target of 99.9%.
Given the information from the customer, which two assumptions would the architect include in the design? (Choose two.)
A. The existing virtual infrastructure has sufficient capacity to host the new VDI workloads
B. The existing operations monitoring tools have sufficient capacity to monitor the new VDI services
C. The existing management cluster has enough available capacity to host any VDI service management component
D. The management cluster has N+1 redundancy
E. The VDI service has a higher service-level agreement (SLA) than the operations management SLA
Answer: A B
Question No 3:
An architect makes the design decision to install ESXi on embedded and resilient 8 GB SD cards. What is the impact of this design decision?
A. Host profiles must be used for this kind of installation
B. Scratch partition would need to be created on the external storage
C. The size of the SD cards is too small and the installation will fail
D. The vSphere Auto Deploy feature must be enabled on vCenter Server
