One of your primary business objectives is being able to trust the data stored in your application. You want to log all changes
to the application data.
How can you design your logging system to verify authenticity of your logs?
Your company just finished a rapid lift and shift to Google Compute Engine for your compute needs. You have another 9
months to design and deploy a more cloud-native solution. Specifically, you want a system that is no-ops and auto-scaling.
Which two compute products should you choose? (Choose two.)
B: With Container Engine, Google will automatically deploy your cluster for you, update, patch, secure the nodes.
Kubernetes Engine's cluster autoscaler automatically resizes clusters based on the demands of the workloads you want to
run. C: Solutions like Datastore, BigQuery, AppEngine, etc are truly NoOps.
App Engine by default scales the number of instances running up and down to match the load, thus providing consistent
performance for your app at all times while minimizing idle instances and thus reducing cost.
Note: At a high level, NoOps means that there is no infrastructure to build out and manage during usage of the platform.
Typically, the compromise you make with NoOps is that you lose control of the underlying infrastructure.
Your marketing department wants to send out a promotional email campaign. The development team wants to minimize
direct operation management. They project a wide range of possible customer responses, from 100 to 500,000 click-through
per day. The link leads to a simple website that explains the promotion and collects user information and preferences. Which
infrastructure should you recommend? (Choose two.)
You want to enable your running Google Kubernetes Engine cluster to scale as demand for your application changes.
What should you do?
Your company places a high value on being responsive and meeting customer needs quickly. Their primary business
objectives are release speed and agility. You want to reduce the chance of security errors being accidentally introduced.
Which two actions can you take? (Choose two.)
Your customer is moving their corporate applications to Google Cloud Platform. The security team wants detailed visibility of
all projects in the organization. You provision the Google Cloud Resource Manager and set up yourself as the org admin.
What Google Cloud Identity and Access Management (Cloud IAM) roles should you give to the security team?
You are helping the QA team to roll out a new load-testing tool to test the scalability of your primary cloud services that run
on Google Compute Engine with Cloud Bigtable.
Which three requirements should they include? (Choose three.)
A B F
Your company runs several databases on a single MySQL instance. They need to take backups of a specific database at
regular intervals. The backup activity needs to complete as quickly as possible and cannot be allowed to impact disk
How should you configure the storage?
You want to make a copy of a production Linux virtual machine in the US-Central region. You want to manage and replace
the copy easily if there are changes on the production virtual machine. You will deploy the copy as a new instance in a
different project in the US-East region.
What steps must you take?
A recent audit revealed that a new network was created in your GCP project. In this network, a GCE instance has an SSH
port open to the world. You want to discover this networks origin.
What should you do?
A: To use the Stackdriver alerting console we must first set up alerting policies.
B: Data access logs only contain read-only operations.
Audit logs help you determine who did what, where, and when.
Cloud Audit Logging returns two types of logs:
Admin activity logs
Data access logs: Contains log entries for operations that perform read-only operations do not modify any data, such as
get, list, and aggregated list methods.
The application reliability team at your company this added a debug feature to their backend service to send all server
events to Google Cloud Storage for eventual analysis. The event records are at least 50 KB and at most 15 MB and are
expected to peak at 3,000 events per second. You want to minimize data loss.
Which process should you implement?
A lead software engineer tells you that his new application design uses websockets and HTTP sessions that are not
distributed across the web servers. You want to help him ensure his application will run properly on Google Cloud Platform.
What should you do?
Google Cloud Platform (GCP) HTTP(S) load balancing provides global load balancing for HTTP(S) requests destined for
your instances. The HTTP(S) load balancer has native support for the WebSocket protocol.
A: HTTP server push, also known as HTTP streaming, is a client-server communication pattern that sends information from
an HTTP server to a client asynchronously, without a client request. A server push architecture is especially effective for
highly interactive web or mobile applications, where one or more clients need to receive continuous information from the
Your companys test suite is a custom C++ application that runs tests throughout each day on Linux virtual machines. The
full test suite takes several hours to complete, running on a limited number of onpremises servers reserved for testing. Your
company wants to move the testing infrastructure to the cloud, to reduce the amount of time it takes to fully test a change to
the system, while changing the tests as little as possible.
Which cloud infrastructure should you recommend?
Google Compute Engine enables users to launch virtual machines (VMs) on demand. VMs can be launched from the
standard images or custom images created by users.
Managed instance groups offer autoscaling capabilities that allow you to automatically add or remove instances from a
managed instance group based on increases or decreases in load. Autoscaling helps your applications gracefully handle
increases in traffic and reduces cost when the need for resources is lower.
B: There is no mention of incoming IP data traffic for the custom C++ applications.
C: Apache Hadoop is not fit for testing C++ applications. Apache Hadoop is an open-source software framework used for
distributed storage and processing of datasets of big data using the MapReduce programming model.
D: Google App Engine is intended to be used for web applications.
Google App Engine (often referred to as GAE or simply App Engine) is a web framework and cloud computing platform for
developing and hosting web applications in Google-managed data centers. Reference:
You are working at an institution that processes medical data. You are migrating several workloads onto Google Cloud.
Company policies require all workloads to run on physically separated hardware, and workloads from different clients must
also be separated. You created a sole-tenant node group and added a node for each client. You need to deploy the
workloads on these dedicated hosts. What should you do?
Your company has a Google Cloud project that uses BigQuery for data warehousing. They have a VPN tunnel between the
on-premises environment and Google Cloud that is configured with Cloud VPN.
The security team wants to avoid data exfiltration by malicious insiders, compromised code, and accidental oversharing.
