Your are deploying an application that requires very high random I/O performance, and high IOPS at a low cost. What kind of EC2 instance type you should select for this application?


Is encryption possible for Amazon EBS volumes and snapshots?


You have your 10 TB of archival data that needs to be migrate to Amazon Glacier. You have an 1-Mbps connection to the Internet. What service will provides the economical and fastest method of getting the data into Amazon Glacier?

What charges will apply when someone making a copy of your Amazon EBS shared snapshot?


Which procedure should you use for backing up a relational database on EC2 that is using a set of RAlDed EBS volumes? The procedure should minimize the time during which the database cannot be written to and results in a consistent backup?


How will you get best disk performance, when you install MySQL database on EC2 and maximizing the disk IO for this instance?


What would happens to the data on the root volume when an EC2 instance is terminated which is backed by instance store volumes?

17) Which operating systems are not available as Spot instances?

Your EC2 is running an MySQL Database. Instance has a 1 TB EBS magnetic storage volume. You notice that the writes are very slow. What can help improve the write performance?

You have audio transcoding application running on Amazon EC2. Each time instance runs it polls a queue to find out which audio should be transcoded, and then runs a the transcoding process. When the process is interrupted, the audio will be transcoded by another instance based on the queuing system. You have a large backlog of audios which need to be transcoded and you need to additional instances to reduce the backlog. These instances will only be required until the backlog is reduced. What cost effective instance type can be used to reduce the backlog in a shortest time?

Your company currently has a 2-tier web application running in an on-premises data center. You have experienced several infrastructure failures in the past two months resulting in significant financial losses. Your CIO is strongly agreeing to move the application to AWS. While working on achieving buy-in from the other company executives, he asks you to develop a disaster recovery plan to help improve Business continuity in the short term. He specifies a target Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of 4 hours and a Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of 1 hour or less. He also asks you to implement the solution within 2 weeks. Your database is 200GB in size and you have a 20Mbps Internet connection. How would you do this while minimizing costs?
