Question 1 Topic 7, Describe Azure cost management and Service Level Agreements

HOTSPOT
To complete the sentence, select the appropriate option in the answer area.
Hot Area:

Answer:

Explanation:
When a virtual machine is stopped (deallocated), the virtual machine is unloaded/dismounted from the physical server in
Azure. In this state, you are not charged for the virtual machine itself. However, you are still charged for the storage costs of
the virtual hard disks attached to the virtual machine.
If the virtual machine is stopped but not deallocated (this happens if you shut down the virtual machine from the operating
system of the virtual machine), the virtual machine is still mounted on the physical server in Azure and you are charged for
the virtual machine itself as well as the storage costs. To ensure that a virtual machine is stopped (deallocated), you need
to stop the virtual machine in the Azure portal.

Question 8 Topic 7, Describe Azure cost management and Service Level Agreements

HOTSPOT
For each of the following statements, select Yes if the statement is true. Otherwise, select No.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:

Answer:

Explanation:
Box 1: Yes
SLAs 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.
Box 2: Yes
The SLA guaranteed uptime is increased (usually to 99.95 percent) when resources are deployed across multiple regions.
Box 3: No
The number of subscriptions is unrelated to uptime SLAs. 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 9 Topic 7, Describe Azure cost management and Service Level Agreements

HOTSPOT
To complete the sentence, select the appropriate option in the answer area.
Hot Area:

Answer:

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 12 Topic 7, Describe Azure cost management and Service Level Agreements

HOTSPOT
For each of the following statements, select Yes if the statement is true. Otherwise, select No.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:

Answer:

Explanation:
Box 1: 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.
Box 2: 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.
Box 3: No
An Azure service in general availability is available to all Azure customers, not just a subset of the customers.

Question 14 Topic 7, Describe Azure cost management and Service Level Agreements

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
Answer:

B

User Votes:
A
50%
B
50%
C
50%
D
50%

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.

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.
