An administrator deploys a virtual machine to its software-defined data center (SDDC) and configures it to perform backups of the other virtual machines in the SDDC. The administrator also creates an AWS Simple Storage Service (S3) bucket in the linked Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) and is attempting to use the S3 bucket as a repository for their backups. The administrator confirms that the backup software is capable of using AWS S3 storage as a backup repository, and that the AWS S3 bucket is configured to use an endpoint in the linked VPC. What else should the administrator do to ensure connectivity between SDDC virtual machines and the AWS S3 repository in the linked VPC through the Elastic Network Interface?

Answer :
  • Configure Direct Connect to a Private Virtual Interface for access to AWS services.

What must be done to enable access to the VMware vSphere Client in a new SDDC after it has been deployed in VMware Cloud on AWS?

Answer :
  • configure a firewall rule in the SDDC to allow access to vCenter Server

Which API endpoint serves as the authentication point for VMware Cloud on AWS?

Answer :
  • Cloud Services Platform API

An administrator deploys a virtual machine and configures it to perform backups to an AWS Simple Storage Service (S3) bucket. After the first month of use, the administrator receives a bill from AWS indicating egress charges were applied to the backup traffic leaving the software-defined data center (SDCC), destined for the AWS S3 bucket. What can the administrator do to ensure backup traffic travels to the linked Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) through the Elastic Network Interface?

Answer :
  • Configure a route-based virtual private network (VPN) for the SDDC to the VPC.

Which two statements are true for the pre-defined resource pools in VMware Cloud on AWS? (Choose two.)

Answer :
  • Users can rename child resource pools to better match company policy.
  • All workload virtual machines are created in the top-level (root) Compute-ResourcePool by default.

An administrator is preparing to deploy a VMware Cloud on AWS software-defined data center (SDDC) and is planning to scale up to 48 nodes in the future. What is the minimum size management CIDR block that is needed to meet this requirement?

A customer plans to use VMware Cloud on AWS to support their public cloud adoption initiatives. Their use case for VMware Cloud on AWS is predominately data center extension to support seasonal and business specific demands. There will also be a number of workloads running in VMware Cloud on AWS on a long-term, permanent basis. Based on a recent sizing assessment, it is determined that utilization of VMware Cloud on AWS will fluctuate between two and five hosts throughout the year based on seasonal and market conditions. Which possible subscription option would result in the greatest benefit to this customer and why?

Answer :
  • Create a subscription for three hosts for three years and consume the remaining hosts, as needed, on-demand. This option allows the customer to lock in a term rate for required hosts and leverage on-demand rates for additional hosts as needed.

A company is operating a main data center and two smaller data centers in branch offices. The main data center is being replicated to a disaster recovery site at a co-located data center with a recovery point objective (RPO) of five minutes and a recovery time objective (RTO) of two hours. The branch data centers are shipping backup tapes to the main data center on a weekly basis. What would be a cost-efficient VMware solution that would improve RTO and RPO for the branch office data centers while maintaining the recovery time for the main data center?

Answer :
  • Create a software-defined data center (SDDC) in VMware Cloud on AWS. Create a shared content librand let the branch offices subscribe to it. Export the virtual machines in the branch offices to OVF files on the shared content library on a weekly basis.
