SNIA Architect ? Assessment Planning & Design Exam

Question 1

Which statement is correct?

  • A. Fan-out is the ratio of switch ports to host ports; and indication of switch load at a single host port.
  • B. B. Fan-out is the ratio of storage ports to host ports; an indication of storage load at a single host port.
  • C. Fan-out is the ratio of switch ports to storage ports; an indication of switch load at a single storage port.
  • D. Fan-out is the ratio of host ports to storage ports; an indication of host traffic load at a single storage port.



Question 2

A company is adding a NAS solution to its existing infrastructure. Their current network infrastructure
is overloaded. After implementing the NAS solution what will the network experience?

  • A. Decreased latency
  • B. Increased latency
  • C. No change in latency
  • D. Decreased latency and improved security



Question 3

You have been tasked with designing an iSCSI based storage network that support 24 servers at a
primary location attached to a 2TB storage array including a tape library with four tape drives. In
addition, there are 18 branch offices each with at least one Windows server that eeds to gain access
to primary storage, tape, and file sharing. Which two should be considered as part of his design?
(Choose two.)

  • A. Determine if current switches support 802.11g and jumbo frames.
  • B. Upgrade the remote network to 1Gb to every device and install iSCSI hardware adapters.
  • C. Assess network topology (bandwidth, available ports, current workload) and file server utilization and the onnectivity needs of storage and tape.
  • D. Look at available network bandwidth at primary location and to remote facilities and ability of current nfrastructure to support more devices and bandwidth.

C, D


Question 4

You have been asked to design a SAN/NAS that stores data that will be internally read by web
browsers for data replay. Some browsers are more likely to render a readable version of a standards-
based page, whereas some browsers will have problems rendering table-based data, invalidating
your design. What should you implement in your design to mitigate these

  • A. A NAS solution that tracks users browser use
  • B. A SAN solution that tracks users browser use
  • C. A NAS solution that segregates the data types for browser reading
  • D. A SAN solution that segregates the data types for browser reading



Question 5

Which tool configures persistent binding in a SAN?

  • A. Zoning tool
  • B. Hba software
  • C. Switch manager
  • D. Backup software



Question 6

A network backup server is attached to a SAN. The server's two HBAs deliver 60 MB/s each to the
tape devices. The tape library attached to the SAN includes 15 MB/s tape devices. Theoretically, how
many tape devices are required to efficiently stream output from the tape server?

  • A. 4
  • B. 8
  • C. 12
  • D. 15



Question 7

A customer has created a disaster recovery (DR) plan and is synchronously replicating its data to
a remote facility. The remote storage/server needs to be configured (LUN masking, zoning, and
rescanning the SCSI bus). To failover the application, what must the customer do?

  • A. Failover storage, re-configure the remote storage/server, start application
  • B. Failover storage, start application, re-configure the remote storage/server
  • C. Pre-configure the remote storage/server, failover storage, start application
  • D. Pre-configure the remote storage/server, start application, failover storage



Question 8

Which two data protection techniques provide the highest level of data protection and rapid
recovery? (Choose two.)

  • A. Local mirroring with backup to tape.
  • B. Backup to disk combined with RAID disk data protection.
  • C. RAID-0 with mirrored write back cache and battery backup.
  • D. Remote mirroring with consistency groups and backup to alternate storage.

B, D


Question 9

A heterogeneous SAN consists of one RAID with four LUNs, one hub, and four servers. How
should you assign one LUN to each server while preventing other servers from accessing other

  • A. Configure the HBA for persistent binding
  • B. Disable the undesired LUNs in the operating system disk manager of each server
  • C. Use the array LUN masking feature to assign RAID LUNs to HBA WWPNs in the servers
  • D. Substitute the hub with a switch and use soft zoning to assign RAID LUNs to HBA WWNs in the servers



Question 10

Which demonstrates a strong potential for data center error(s)?

  • A. Unrestricted vendor access to infrastructure for immediate resolution issues
  • B. Precise documentation that outlines steps to perform during common fault conditions
  • C. Defined roles and scope or all employees that service and maintain infrastructure equipment
  • D. Approved change control process that limits actions to the infrastructure to those who are qualified
