They will need four more ports on each SVM server.

B.

They will need four fewer ports on each SVM server.

C.

by host

B.

by RAID level

C.

by DPM

D.

by users

Question 4

The cost of application down-time can be quantified by which method?

Options:

A.

duration of outage in hours multiplied by the number of employees impacted multiplied by the hourly employee expense

B.

number of application outages multiplied by the number of employees multiplied by the business hours in a day

C.

number of business days in a year multiplied by the number of outages in a year multiplied by the yearly employee salary

D.

duration of outage in hours multiplied by the number of outages in a year divided by the time to recover application

Question 5

When consolidating onto a new storage platform, what actually moves the data?

Options:

A.

the Data Path Module

B.

the SVM server

C.

the storage array

D.

the SAN switch

Question 6

A customer cannot redo backups in the event of tape failure. Even though the customer has live backup agents, the increased load on the application server causes severe performance problems should the backup be restarted and runs into peak processing periods. What are two ways that multiView can assist in reducing the load on the application server? (Choose two.)

Options:

A.

multiView can take a PiT of the application that can be kept for recovery from disk and then backed up to tape during quieter processing times.

B.

multiView can take a PiT of the application and then copy it over IP to another site for resilience.

C.

multiView will take a full copy of the application which the backup application can then backup offline during less busy processing times.

D.

A view of a PiT can be mounted on a backup server and backed up to tape with no data flow or processing overhead on the application server.

Question 7

Which statement describes tiered storage?

Options:

A.

An infrastructure designed to lower the overall cost of storage by placing volumes on "fit for purpose" storage based on defined cost, availability, and performance requirements.

B.

An infrastructure designed to place data on the storage devices that have the lowest price per megabyte ratio.

C.

An infrastructure designed to place data on different storage devices to ensure a heterogeneous model.

D.

An infrastructure designed to place data on different storage devices to ensure a homogeneous model.

Question 8

Which virtualized storage solution offers data services that include thin provisioning with Dynamic Provisioning software, application-centric storage management, logical partitioning, and unified data replication?

Options:

A.

EMC Clariion CX-4

B.

Hitachi USP VM

C.

Compellent Storage Center

D.

3PAR InServ

Question 9

A long time customer just called requesting your help justifying SVM as they virtualize their data center using VMware. What are three reasons SVM's storage services would benefit this customer? (Choose three.)

Options:

A.

Rapid application recovery is easier with SVM's snapshot capabilities.

B.

SVM will make provisioning easy and fast.

C.

Disaster recovery will be less expensive than using traditional methods.

D.

SVM will eliminate the need for tape.

E.

SVM will automatically size storage to fit the data.

Question 10

What is used to guarantee the consistency of an application snapshot that spans multiple volumes?

Options:

A.

Consistency Volumes

B.

Consistency Groups

C.

Consistency Snapshots

D.

Consistency Association

Question 11

In an IT center with several different vendor’s storage arrays, virtualized networked storage with SVM provides migration of data to less expensive tiers of storage by doing what?

Options:

A.

Pooling the storage into a server virtualization model whereby different servers can emulate hosts and tier the data.

B.

Pooling the storage into a networked virtualization model zoning the virtualized storage utilizing third-party tools.

C.

Pooling the storage across different vendor’s storage arrays into a centralized pool and then assigning different applications and tiers to different pools.

D.

Pooling the storage across different vendor’s storage arrays into assigned volume groups and use virtual servers to tier the data.

Question 12

How can zero-window backup assist a customer in reducing the time taken to recover volumes, applications, or files?

Options:

A.

The customer will simply uncompress the data on disk that was previously compressed by SVM.

B.

The customer can recover from recently taken PiTs that are on disk rather than the last tape backup.

C.

The customer can recover from tape images on a virtual tape library managed by SVM.

D.

The customer can move the data back from a disaster recovery site using IP.

Question 13

The hourly cost of organization-wide downtime can be calculated for each client using which method?

Options:

A.

(yearly revenue) divided by (number of business days in a year multiplied by the number of business hours in a day)

B.

(yearly revenue) divided by (number of employees multiplied by the number of business hours in a day)

C.

(yearly revenue) divided by (duration of outage multiplied by employee hourly wage)

D.

each industry has a fixed rate that is unique

Question 14
