Ready-Made Environment A is hosted by Virtual Server A and Ready-Made Environments is hosted by Virtual Server B. Virtual Servers A and B are hosted by Hypervisor A, which is part of a hypervisor cluster. An automated scaling listener intercepts cloud consumer requests and automatically invokes the on-demand generation of additional instances of ready-made environments, as required.
A self-service portal and a usage and administration portal are also available to cloud consumers. The self-service portal can be used to request the provisioning of a new ready- made environment. Any cloud consumer that has already had a ready-made environment provisioned can configure and view information about that ready-made environment via the usage and administration portal.
Cloud Consumer A accesses Ready-Made Environment A to work on the development of a new cloud service (1). Cloud Consumer B accesses Ready-Made Environment B to test a recently completed application comprised of three cloud services (2). Cloud Consumer C accesses the self-service portal to request the creation of a new ready-made environment
(3).


The cloud provider is required to perform an emergency maintenance outage on a cloud storage device used by all ready-made environments. The unplanned outage takes two hours. During this period, Cloud Consumers A and B are unable to access Ready-Made
Environments A and B and Cloud Consumer C receives an error when submitting a request to create a new ready-made environment.
After the maintenance outage is over, Cloud Consumers A and B encounter the following problems:
-> Cloud Consumer A is unable to recover session data that was kept in memory for an extended period, prior to the time of the outage.
-> Cloud Consumer B has no access to Virtual Server B, which was moved to
Hypervisor B during the maintenance outage. When Cloud Consumer B attempts to ping Virtual Server B, the request times out.
Even though Cloud Consumer C is able to lo

Answer : A

Cloud Storage Device A contains LUN A and can be accessed by external cloud consumers via a proprietary user portal that is used primarily by cloud consumers to upload and manage data for backup purposes. Pay-Per-Use Monitor A tracks the amount of data being uploaded and forwards this information to a billing management system. Cloud
Storage Device B is a secondary cloud storage device. Data from Cloud Storage Device A is replicated synchronously to Cloud Storage Device B using a storage replication program
(not shown). Cloud Storage Device A is further administered by a cloud resource administrator that works for the cloud provider, who accesses the cloud storage device via an internal usage and administration portal.

Answer : A

Cloud Service A and Cloud Service B perform different functions but both share access to
Cloud Storage Device A when fulfilling requests from cloud service consumers that require data access. Cloud Services A and B are hosted by Virtual Server A, which is hosted by
Hypervisor A on Physical Server A.
Cloud Service Consumer A accesses Cloud Service A to issue a request for data (1).
Cloud Service A queries a database in Cloud Storage Device A to retrieve the data (2).
Upon receiving the requested data, Cloud Service Consumer A combines it with additional data to form a new collection of data. Cloud Service Consumer A then accesses Cloud
Service B and provides it with the new data (3). Cloud Service B accesses a different database in Cloud Storage Device A to store the new data (4). Cloud Consumer B accesses the usage and administration portal to upload new data (5). The data is uploaded to Cloud Storage Device B (6).
