Question 702

Which statement accurately describes the Modern Lifecycle Policy for Azure services?

A. Microsoft provides mainstream support for a service for five years.
*B. Microsoft provides a minimum of 12 months’ notice before ending support for a service.
C. After a service is made generally available, Microsoft provides support for the service for a minimum of four years.
D. When a service is retired, you can purchase extended support for the service for up to five years.

Explanation

For products governed by the Modern Lifecycle Policy, Microsoft will provide a minimum of 12 months’ notification prior to ending support if no successor product or service is offered — excluding free services or preview releases.

Question 703

For each of the following statements, select Yes if the statement is true. Otherwise, select No.

Statement 1: The Service Level Agreement (SLA) guaranteed uptime for paid Azure services is at least 99.9 percent: Yes
Statement 2: Companies can increase the Service Level Agreement (SLA) guaranteed uptime by adding Azure resources to multiple regions: Yes
Statement 3: Companies can increase the Service Level Agreement (SLA) guaranteed uptime by purchasing multiple subscriptions: No

Explanation

Statement 1: The Service Level Agreement (SLA) guaranteed uptime for paid Azure services is at least 99.9 percent: Yes
SLA’s vary based on the resource type and the location distribution of the resource. However, the minimum uptime for all Azure services is 99.9 percent.

Statement 2: Companies can increase the Service Level Agreement (SLA) guaranteed uptime by adding Azure resources to multiple regions: Yes
The SLA guaranteed uptime is increased (usually to 99.95 percent) when resources are deployed across multiple regions.

Statement 3: Companies can increase the Service Level Agreement (SLA) guaranteed uptime by purchasing multiple subscriptions: No
The number of subscriptions is unrelated to uptime SLA’s. You can deploy resources to multiple regions under a single subscription or you can have multiple subscriptions with resources deployed to the same region.

Question 704

To complete the sentence, select the appropriate option in the answer area.

You have an application that is comprised of an Azure web app that has a Service Level Agreement (SLA) of 99.95 percent and an Azure SQL database that has an SLA of 99.99 percent.

The composite SLA for the application is __________.

Answer Area:
*A. the product of both SLAs, which equals 99.94 percent.
B. the lowest SLA associated to the application, which is 99.95 percent.
C. the highest SLA associated to the application, which is 99.99 percent.
D. the difference between the two SLAs, which is 0.05 percent.

Explanation

Composite SLAs involve multiple services supporting an application, each with differing levels of availability. For example, consider an App Service web app that writes to Azure SQL Database. At the time of this writing, these Azure services have the following SLAs:

  • App Service web apps = 99.95%
  • SQL Database = 99.99%

What is the maximum downtime you would expect for this application? If either service fails, the whole application fails. The probability of each service failing is independent, so the composite SLA for this application is 99.95% × 99.99% = 99.94%. That’s lower than the individual SLAs, which isn’t surprising because an application that relies on multiple services has more potential failure points.

Question 705

For each of the following statements, select Yes if the statement is true. Otherwise, select No.

Statement 1: The cost of Azure resources can vary between regions: Yes
Statement 2: An Azure reservation is used to reserve server capacity at a specific data center: Yes
Statement 3: You can stop an Azure SQL Database instance to decrease costs: No

Question 706

For each of the following statements, select Yes if the statement is true. Otherwise, select No.

Statement 1: With a consumption-based plan, you pay a fixed rate for all data sent to or from virtual machines hosted in the cloud: No
Statement 2: With a consumption-based plan, you reduce overall costs by paying only for extra capacity when it is required: Yes
Statement 3: Serverless computing is an example of a consumption-based plan: Yes

Question 707

For each of the following statements, select Yes if the statement is true. Otherwise, select No.

Statement 1: An Azure service in private preview is released to all Azure customers: No
Statement 2: An Azure service in public preview is released to all Azure customers: Yes
Statement 3: An Azure service in general availability is released to a subset of Azure customers: No

Explanation

Statement 1: An Azure service in private preview is released to all Azure customers: No
Most services go to private preview then public preview before being released to general availability. The private preview is only available to certain Azure customers for evaluation purposes.

Statement 2: An Azure service in public preview is released to all Azure customers: Yes
Public Preview means that the service is in public beta and can be tried out by anyone with an Azure subscription. Services in public preview are often offered at a discount price.
Public previews are excluded from SLAs and in some cases, no support is offered.

Statement 3: An Azure service in general availability is released to a subset of Azure customers: No
An Azure service in general availability is available to all Azure customers, not just a subset of the customers.

Question 708

For each of the following statements, select Yes if the statement is true. Otherwise, select No.

Statement 1: An Azure free account has a spending limit: Yes
Statement 2: An Azure free account has a limit of 2 TB of data that can be uploaded to Azure: No
Statement 3: An Azure free account can contain an unlimited number of web apps: No

Explanation

Statement 1: An Azure free account has a spending limit: Yes
An Azure free account has a spending limit. This is currently 200 USD or 150 GBP.

Statement 2: An Azure free account has a limit of 2 TB of data that can be uploaded to Azure: No
Azure free account has a 5 GB blob storage limit and a 5 GB file storage limit.

Statement 3: An Azure free account can contain an unlimited number of web apps: No
Azure free account has a limit of 10 web, mobile or API apps

Question 709

Your company has 10 departments.

The company plans to implement an Azure environment.

You need to ensure that each department can use a different payment option for the Azure services it consumes.

What should you create for each department?

A. a reservation
*B. a subscription
C. a resource group
D. a container instance

Explanation

There are different payment options in Azure including pay-as-you-go (PAYG), Enterprise Agreement (EA), and Microsoft Customer Agreement (MCA) accounts.

Your Azure costs are ‘per subscription’. You are charged monthly for all resources in a subscription. Therefore, to use different payment options per department, you will need to create a separate subscription per department. You can create multiple subscriptions in a single Azure Active Directory tenant.

Incorrect Answers:
A: A reservation is where you commit to a resource (for example a virtual machine) for one or three years. This gives you a discounted price on the resource for the reservation period. Reservations do not provide a way to use different payment options per department.
C: A resource group is a logical container for Azure resources. You can view the total cost of all the resources in a resource group. However, resource groups do not provide a way to use different payment options per department.
D: A container instance is an Azure resource used to run an application. Container instances do not provide a way to use different payment options per department.

Question 710

Your company has a Software Assurance agreement that includes Microsoft SQL Server licenses.

You plan to deploy SQL Server on Azure virtual machines.

What should you do to minimize licensing costs for the deployment?

A. Deallocate the virtual machines during off hours.
*B. Use Azure Hybrid Benefit.
C. Configure Azure Cost Management budgets.
D. Use Azure reservations.

Explanation

Azure Hybrid Benefit is a licensing benefit that helps you to significantly reduce the costs of running your workloads in the cloud. It works by letting you use your on-premises Software Assurance-enabled Windows Server and SQL Server licenses on Azure.
