Question 3 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

HOTSPOT
You have two Azure virtual machines named VM1 and VM2 that run Windows Server 2019. VM1 and VM2 each host a
default Microsoft SQL Server 2019 instance. VM1 contains a database named DB1 that is backed up to a file named
D:\DB1.bak.
You plan to deploy an Always On availability group that will have the following configurations:
VM1 will host the primary replica of DB1.

VM2 will host a secondary replica of DB1.

Explanation:
Azure Databricks makes a distinction between all-purpose clusters and job clusters. You use all-purpose clusters to analyze
data collaboratively using interactive notebooks. You use job clusters to run fast and robust automated jobs.
The Azure Databricks job scheduler creates a job cluster when you run a job on a new job cluster and terminates the cluster
when the job is complete.

Question 5 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

HOTSPOT
You have an Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 container.
Data is ingested into the container, and then transformed by a data integration application. The data is NOT modified after
that. Users can read files in the container but cannot modify the files.
You need to design a data archiving solution that meets the following requirements:
New data is accessed frequently and must be available as quickly as possible.

Data that is older than five years is accessed infrequently but must be available within one second when requested.

Data that us older than seven years is NOT accessed. After seven years, the data must be persisted at the lowest cost

possible.
Costs must be minimized while maintaining the required availability.

How should you manage the data? To answer, select the appropriate options in the answer area.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:

Answer:


Explanation:
Box 1: Move to cool storage
The cool access tier has lower storage costs and higher access costs compared to hot storage. This tier is intended for data
that will remain in the cool tier for at least 30 days. Example usage scenarios for the cool access tier include:
Short-term backup and disaster recovery
Older data not used frequently but expected to be available immediately when accessed Large data sets that need to be
stored cost effectively, while more data is being gathered for future processing
Note: Hot - Optimized for storing data that is accessed frequently.
Cool - Optimized for storing data that is infrequently accessed and stored for at least 30 days. Archive - Optimized for storing
data that is rarely accessed and stored for at least 180 days with flexible latency requirements, on the order of hours.
Box 2: Move to archive storage
Example usage scenarios for the archive access tier include:
Long-term backup, secondary backup, and archival datasets
Original (raw) data that must be preserved, even after it has been processed into final usable form Compliance and archival
data that needs to be stored for a long time and is hardly ever accessed

Question 6 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

HOTSPOT
You have an Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 account named account1 that stores logs as shown in the following table.

You do not expect that the logs will be accessed during the retention periods.
You need to recommend a solution for account1 that meets the following requirements:
Automatically deletes the logs at the end of each retention period Minimizes storage costs


What should you include in the recommendation? To answer, select the appropriate options in the answer area.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:

Answer:


Explanation:
Box 1: Store the infrastructure logs in the Cool access tier the application logs in the Archive access tier
Hot - Optimized for storing data that is accessed frequently.
Cool - Optimized for storing data that is infrequently accessed and stored for at least 30 days. Archive - Optimized for storing
data that is rarely accessed and stored for at least 180 days with flexible latency requirements, on the order of hours.
Box 2: Azure Blob storage lifecycle management rules
Blob storage lifecycle management offers a rich, rule-based policy that you can use to transition your data to the best access
tier and to expire data at the end of its lifecycle.

Question 9 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

HOTSPOT
You have SQL Server on an Azure virtual machine that contains a database named DB1.
The database reports a CHECKSUM error.
You need to recover the database.
How should you complete the statements? To answer, select the appropriate options in the answer area.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:

Answer:


Explanation:
Box 1: SINGLE_USER The specified database must be in single-user mode to use one of the following repair options.
Box 2: REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS tries to repair all reported errors. These repairs can
cause some data loss.
Note: The REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS option is a supported feature but it may not always be the best option for bringing
a database to a physically consistent state. If successful, the REPAIR_ALLOW_DATA_LOSS option may result in some data
loss. In fact, it may result in more data lost than if a user were to restore the database from the last known good backup.
Incorrect Answers:
REPAIR_FAST Maintains syntax for backward compatibility only. No repair actions are performed.
Box 3: MULTI_USER MULTI_USER All users that have the appropriate permissions to connect to the database are allowed.
