Question 8 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

HOTSPOT
You plan to migrate on-premises Microsoft SQL Server databases to Azure.
You need to identify which deployment and resiliency options meet the following requirements:
Support user-initiated backups.

Support multiple automatically replicated instances across Azure regions.

Minimize administrative effort to implement and maintain business continuity.

What should you identify? To answer, select the appropriate options in the answer area.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:

Answer:

Explanation:
Box 1: SQL Server on Azure VMs
SQL Server on Azure Virtual Machines can take advantage of Automated Backup, which regularly creates backups of your
database to blob storage. You can also manually use this technique.
Box 2: Active geo-replication
Geo-replication for services such as Azure SQL Database and Cosmos DB will create secondary replicas of your data
across multiple regions. While both services will automatically replicate data within the same region, geo-replication protects
you against a regional outage by enabling you to fail over to a secondary region.

Question 11 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

Note: This question is part of a series of questions that present the same scenario. Each question in the series contains a
unique solution that might meet the stated goals. Some question sets might have more than one correct solution, while
others might not have a correct solution.
After you answer a question in this section, you will NOT be able to return to it. As a result, these questions will not appear in
the review screen.
You have two Azure SQL Database servers named Server1 and Server2. Each server contains an Azure SQL database
named Database1.
You need to restore Database1 from Server1 to Server2. The solution must replace the existing Database1 on Server2.
Solution: From Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS), you rename Database1 on Server2 as Database2. From
the Azure portal, you create a new database on Server2 by restoring the backup of Database1 from Server1, and then you
delete Database2.
Does this meet the goal?

  • A. Yes
  • B. No
Answer:

B

User Votes:
A
50%
B
50%

Explanation:
Instead restore Database1 from Server1 to the Server2 by using the RESTORE Transact-SQL command and the REPLACE
option.
Note: REPLACE should be used rarely and only after careful consideration. Restore normally prevents accidentally
overwriting a database with a different database. If the database specified in a RESTORE statement already exists on the
current server and the specified database family GUID differs from the database family GUID recorded in the backup set, the
database is not restored. This is an important safeguard.

Question 12 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

You have an on-premises app named App1 that stores data in an on-premises Microsoft SQL Server 2019 database named
DB1.
You plan to deploy additional instances of App1 to separate Azure regions. Each region will have a separate instance of
App1 and DB1. The separate instances of DB1 will sync by using Azure SQL Data Sync.
You need to recommend a database service for the deployment. The solution must minimize administrative effort.
What should you include in the recommendation?

  • A. Azure SQL Managed instance
  • B. Azure SQL Database single database
  • C. Azure Database for PostgreSQL

Question 13 Topic 8, Mixed Questions

You plan to move two 100-GB databases to Azure.
You need to dynamically scale resources consumption based on workloads. The solution must minimize downtime during
scaling operations.
What should you use?

  • A. two Azure SQL Databases in an elastic pool
  • B. two databases hosted in SQL Server on an Azure virtual machine
  • C. two databases in an Azure SQL Managed instance
  • D. two single Azure SQL databases

Explanation:
Azure SQL Database elastic pools are a simple, cost-effective solution for managing and scaling multiple databases that
have varying and unpredictable usage demands. The databases in an elastic pool are on a single server and share a set
number of resources at a set price.

You have an Azure SQL database named Sales.
You need to implement disaster recovery for Sales to meet the following requirements:
During normal operations, provide at least two readable copies of Sales. Ensure that Sales remains available if a


datacenter fails.
Solution: You deploy an Azure SQL database that uses the General Purpose service tier and failover groups.
Does this meet the goal?

  • A. Yes
  • B. No
Answer:

B

User Votes:
A

B

Explanation:
Instead deploy an Azure SQL database that uses the Business Critical service tier and Availability Zones.
Note: Premium and Business Critical service tiers leverage the Premium availability model, which integrates compute
resources (sqlservr.exe process) and storage (locally attached SSD) on a single node. High availability is achieved by
replicating both compute and storage to additional nodes creating a three to four-node cluster.
By default, the cluster of nodes for the premium availability model is created in the same datacenter. With the introduction of
Azure Availability Zones, SQL Database can place different replicas of the Business Critical database to different availability
zones in the same region. To eliminate a single point of failure, the control ring is also duplicated across multiple zones as
three gateway rings (GW).
