An application development company is considering implementing a cloud solution to help improve time to market with new software upgrades. The existing application has been in use by customers for several years and contains a large amount of code. Which of the following types of clouds would be BEST for this company to implement?
Answer: C Explanation:
Platform as a service (PaaS) is a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud, with resources that enable you to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated, cloud-enabled enterprise applications. You purchase the resources you need from a cloud service provider on a pay-as-you-go basis and access them over a secure Internet connection.
Like IaaS, PaaS includes infrastructure-servers, storage, and networking-but also middleware, development tools, business intelligence (BI) services, database management systems, and more. PaaS is designed to support the complete web application lifecycle: building, testing, deploying, managing, and updating.
PaaS allows you to avoid the expense and complexity of buying and managing software licenses, the underlying application infrastructure and middleware or the development tools and other resources. You manage the applications and services you develop, and the cloud service provider typically manages everything else.

You store data in an Azure blob. Data accumulates at a rate of 0.10 GB per day.
You must use storage analytics data to verify that the service level agreement (SLA) has been met and to analyze the performance of VHDs, including the pattern of usage.
Analytics data must be deleted when it is older than 100 days or when the total amount of data exceeds 10 GB.
You need to configure storage analytics and access the storage analytics data.
Which two approaches will achieve the goal? Each correct answer presents part of the solution.
Disable the data retention policy.
Access analytics data by using the Service Management REST APL
Access analytics data by using the APIs used to read blob and table data.
Configure a data retention policy of 100 days.

Consumption statistics for individual cloud service offerings is used by which of the following ITIL processes?
Continuous service improvement
Service level management
Information security management
Answer: C Explanation:
ITIL defines Service Management as 鈥渁 set of specialised organisational capabilities for providing value to customers in the form of services鈥?
The managed service provider will intermediate between the cloud service provider and consumer, aligning the two and ensuring minimal service disruptions.
ITIL Service Level Management aims to negotiate Service Level Agreements with the customers and to design services in accordance with the agreed service level targets. Service Level Management is also responsible for ensuring that all Operational Level Agreements and Underpinning Contracts are appropriate, and to monitor and report on service levels.

Your company has a main office and several branch offices.
You create an Azure subscription and you deploy several virtual machines. The virtual machines are located in multiple subnets.
You need to provide remote access to the virtual machines to five users in each office by using a VPN connection. The remote access connections will not require a VPN device nor a public-facing IP address in order to work.
Which three actions should you perform in sequence before you download the VPN client on each computer? To answer, move the appropriate actions from the list of actions to the answer area and arrange them in the correct order.

You are designing an upgrade strategy for a Windows Azure application that includes one web role with one instance.
You have the following requirements:
-> Test the application on the Windows Azure platform.
-> Ensure that application upgrades can be rolled back.
-> Ensure that upgrade and rollback processes do not cause downtime.
You need to recommend an approach for upgrading the application. What should you recommend?
Deploy to the Production slot. Test the application, and then perform a VIP swap.
Deploy to the Staging slot. Test the application, and then perform a VIP swap.
Deploy to the Staging slot. Test the application, and then perform a manual in-place upgrade to the Production slot.
Deploy to the Staging slot. Test the application, and then perform an automatic in-place upgrade to the Production slot.
Answer: B Explanation:
Run Set-AzureDeploymentSlot from the service directory to set the deployment environment for the current service to either Staging or Production.
This updates the DeploymentSettings.json file for the service.
A hosted service is a service that runs your code in the Windows Azure environment.
It has two separate deployment slots: staging and production. The staging deployment slot allows you to test your service in the Windows Azure environment before you deploy it to production. You can upgrade your service by deploying a new package to the staging environment and then swapping the staging and production deployments. This type of upgrade is called a Virtual IP or VIP swap, as it swaps the addresses of the two deployments.
Both deployments remain online during the swap process. You can swap VIPs using the Windows Azure Platform Management Portal, or by using the Service Management API. If you are upgrading your service with a new service definition file, you must swap VIPs; you cannot perform an in-place upgrade. However, you can swap VIPs only if the number of endpoints specified by the service definition is identical for both deployments. For example, if you add an HTTPS endpoint to a web role that previously exposed only an HTTP endpoint, you cannot upgrade your service using a VIP swap; you#39;ll need to delete your production deployment and redeploy instead
