You are in the process of moving a virtualized environment from an old host computer to a new host computer. You are using VMWare Workstation for the virtualization. You have forgotten where you have saved the guest virtual disk image files on the old host computer. What file extensions can you search for so you may copy the disk images to the new host computer?
[A vmdk file is a virtualization storage format that is associated with VMWare Workstation and ESX server products.]
Which of the following cloud computing service offerings consists of infrastructure that is operated solely for a single organization?
[A private cloud is a cloud infrastructure setup for the use of a single entity. An example of a private cloud is an organization's private Intranet.]
With Microsoft Hyper-V, different types of virtual switches can be created. Which switch type is only usable by the guest virtual machines on the Hyper-V host?
[A private switch created with Microsoft Hyper-V is a switch that is only usable by the guest virtual machines. For example, with this type of switch a Linux guest and a Windows guest could communicate with each other but not with the host or any other physical machines on the network.]
Which of the following cloud services offers a cloud based web development and deployment platform?
[PaaS (Platform as a Service) is a cloud based offering that provides a platform for developers to create web based applications and deploy them. Examples of PaaS components would be web servers, application engines and their functionality.]
Which of the following cloud services offers application hosting with web based management and access for users?
[SaaS (Software as a Service) is a cloud based offering that provides application access to users via the Internet. Examples of popular SaaS applications are Office 365, Google Suite, SalesForce, and Zoho Office.]
You have purchased a new gaming PC. When looking at the BIOS to tweak settings, you find a feature setting named AMD-V. What does this feature support?
[AMD-X is an AMD technology that is included in many CPUs. Within a system BIOS, AMD-X can be enabled or disabled. When enabled, virtualization platforms can take advantage of features that allow guest virtual machines to use a host CPU as if it were a dedicated CPU.]
You plan on purchasing a Windows 10 desktop to virtualize two Linux operating systems for web development purposes. You are in the market for a machine with an Intel processor. What CPU virtualization feature will you look for when shopping?
[VT (Virtualization Technology) is an Intel technology that is included in many CPUs. Within a system BIOS, VT can be enabled or disabled. With VT enabled, virtualization platforms can take advantage of features that allow guest virtual machines to use a host CPU as if it were a dedicated CPU.]
Which cloud deployment type uses both private and public cloud features?
Hybrid clouds are a combination of public and private cloud type. An example of hybrid cloud usage can be the use of public cloud storage services for an internal private cloud application.
You are starting a project that requires virtualizing two Windows 10 workstations on a single host computer. Your supervisor has gone ahead and purchased VMWare Workstation Pro for the project. Which method best describes installing the host system properly?
Install an operating system such as Windows 10 on the host system and then Install VMWare Workstation Pro.
[VMWare Workstation Pro uses a type-2 hypervisor. A type-2 hypervisor needs to run atop an operating system.]
A user is requesting to be able to virtualize a Windows 10 Professional workstation on their computer. You learn that the user has an Apple computer. Which virtualization solution do you choose to install?
[VMWare Fusion is type-2 virtualization hypervisor that can be used to run guest operating systems on an Apple computer. A type-2 hypervisor requires an underlying operating system and does not have direct access to the host system’s hardware.]
Which cloud deployment type is targeted towards only a certain group of users?
[Community clouds are available only to a certain group. Individuals using a cloud application for project purposes is an example of a community cloud.]
