Working knowledge of the various types of clouds

15. Which of the following statements best describes public cloud?

A public cloud is use for an enterprise can provide and govern computing resources (physical servers, application servers, storage space, applications, services, etc.) A public cloud is a cloud environment consisting of multiple internal and/or external providers "will be typical for most enterprises". A public cloud helps businesses shift the bulk of the costs from capital expenditures and IT infrastructure investment to a utility operating expense model,whereby resources are dynamically provisioned on a fine-grained, self-service basis over the Internet via Web applications/Web services
16. Which customer scenario best fits a deployment on a public cloud?

A customer whose IT Infrastructure is underutilized A customer who deals with highly sensitive user information A customer who is not too concerned about security control over their data, and the system load is almost a constant at all times A customer who does not have the IT infrastructure to handle variable system load.
17. A company is considering a cloud environment to improve the operating efficiency for their data and applications. The company is part of an industry where strict security and data privacy issues are of the highest importance. Which type of cloud would be a

good choice?

private cloud public cloud hybrid cloud governed cloud

18. What are two considerations before moving data to a public cloud (Choose two)

A company can safely assume that cloud services will replicate and backup all of their data. A company must restructure all data to accommodate a public cloud data model. A company should analyze all legal and regulatory issues that pertain to the data. A company should encrypt all data so that they do not have to analyze legal and regulatory issues. A company should analyze data structure to see if they can take advantage of public cloud data models.
19. What is private cloud?

An IT activities/functions are provided "as a service" over the secured Internet, which allows access to technology-enabled services without knowledge of, expertise with, or control over the technology infrastructure that supports them. A cloud architecture maintained within an enterprise's data center A cloud service that is operated by a 3rd party cloud service provider A cloud infrastructure that allows automatically scale up and scale down of resources rapidly through a external connection in a shared infrastructure
20. Which of the following are important reason(s) for enterprise not to adopt public cloud services?

Security Performance Scalability Control of data Speed of Access
