  • DP-203 Attempt
    by /u/teja1394 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 24, 2022 at 3:50 pm

    Exam scheduled: 24Sep, 2022 18:00PM IST No. of questions: 43 Time: 100 min Score: 648 - failed Out of 43 questions, there was one scenario given and based on that 5 questions were asked(These questions do not have option to review at last) In remaining 38, there are 5 questions based on scenario and few services were given and asked they're appropriate. Should choose b/w yes or no (These also don't have option to review) My questions are mostly from Synapse and related services, got questions from DataFactory, triggers, stream analytics, syntax questions from mySQL, spark. I felt exam was moderate level and more questions are based on scenarios. Resources I used: Udemy Course from Eshant Garg(Covered most topics in this course, but I feel not sufficient enough to clear exam) Whizlabs practice tests --> decent enough and covered the topics Reason I feel for not clearing: Did not go much through MS Learning paths. Previously I cleared AZ-900,DP-900 in first attempt where I completed learning paths. Will look at my detailed report of exam and will give another shot after preparation! submitted by /u/teja1394 [link] [comments]

My question is, will they charge me if I reschedule the exam for next month as the expiry date of the voucher is 30th Sep. submitted by /u/ahmedtm1 [link] [comments]

  • How LG CNS is creating future AI leaders with immersive machine learning training
    by (Training & Certifications) on September 22, 2022 at 4:00 pm

    As a Korean technology leader specializing in digital transformation (DX), LG CNS partners with customers to help them achieve digital growth across fields including cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), big data, smart factory, and smart logistics. Towards the end of 2020, LG CNS was investigating how to drive digital transformation and growth within their own ranks to demonstrate and extend their core competitive advantage as a consulting service and system integration service provider. By enhancing their internal teams’ AI capabilities, they would ensure they could provide even more innovation and technical expertise for their customers’ own transformation journeys to maintain their position in the market, and continue to provide creative insights and thought leadership both within Korea and overseas.After investigating several external training programs, LG CNS decided to partner with Google Cloud Learning Services to guarantee they received the right level of training and support to further elevate their world-class team. They recognized and respected Google’s global leadership in AI and machine learning (ML), and believed Google was the only partner that could elevate their company to a global level, in line with their already prominent position within the Korean market.  LG CNS’s employees participated in 5 weeks of machine learning and 1 week of machine learning operations (MLOps) training through the Advanced Solutions Lab (ASL) via ASL Virtual. This immersive learning program enabled participants to collaborate and learn directly from Google Cloud engineers and ML experts, without having to attend a Google campus. LG CNS’ participants for this transformative training program were selected based on a strict criteria. They were all considered high performers within LG CNS, and held 1-2 years practical experience in the AI/ML field. With continuous competency development and care, many will progress to become AI development leaders within the company, ensuring LG CNS can remain at the forefront of their field and collaborate with other businesses to fuel their own DX solutions.“I hope that all trainees can grow through the Google Cloud ASL program, which has the world's best AI technology, and I look forward to taking responsibility for leading AI in each division.” — SVP of LG CNSGoogle Cloud Learning services’ early involvement in the organizational stages of this training process, and agile response to LG CNS’s requirements, ensured LG CNS could add the extra week of MLOps training to their program as soon as they began the initial ASL ML course. This productive, collaborative experience demonstrated the strength and flexibility of Google Cloud Learning services, and their capacity to tailor virtual learning content to meet the needs of the specific client and their business objectives.Following the success of this first round in 2021, LG CNS has done ASL ML/MLOps training for another cohort in 2022 to cultivate even more AI and ML expert groups. This empowers LG CNS to build even more capacity within their workforce to continue advancing and developing the most breakthrough technologies to support their customers’ own digital transformation and innovation.To learn more about how you can engage business innovation in your own organization through cloud education services, visit Google Cloud Training & Certification and get started on your own learning journey.Related ArticleDrive digital transformation, get Cloud Digital Leader certifiedDiscover Google Cloud Digital Leader no-cost training and certification discount, and attend free webinar on September 15, 2022.Read Article

  • Fun ways to learn besides docs/acg/youtube
    by /u/Neverchoosered (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 21, 2022 at 10:57 pm

    Hello all. Just seeing if anyone has any cool resources to help study and practice for the az104. I passed the az900 with just the docs but it seemed pretty practical. I have acg and have watched some YouTube videos to learn, along with Microsoft docs. Is there anything else out there to make it more fun? Build something cool and interesting to learn along the way and delete it? I messed around with the AWS cloud practitioner game and it was pretty cool. I haven't been able to find anything online for azure like it or just enjoyable. Sure videos and reads get it done but I get bored too quick and switch to something else. Thanks in advance! submitted by /u/Neverchoosered [link] [comments]

  • What Azure certification(s) are best If I want to manage applications within an azure environment?

    I recently got the AZ900 and plan to test on the AZ104 soon. I am a sysadmin of a company and manage an Azure environment and application management, deployment and automation for the applications we use. Specifically, we are going to be taking on app identity management, access, management, automation, deployment as well as security. I have looked into the Azure development paths and documentation and it seems like AZ500 will be another good next step. Any other suggestions? submitted by /u/TW3RKUL33Z [link] [comments]

  • A few administrative tips for new ESI users.
    by /u/IT_ISNT101 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 21, 2022 at 12:17 pm

    Hey Everyone, I know there are quite a few ESI users here and after having done a *lot* of the ESI courses and exams I thought it may be useful to add some tips and to see if anyone else has tips they can share about making it the best experience they can. 1) Multi-day invites - potential for marked as not attending. I am currently on a course and the instructor explained that you should NEVER, ever use the same link/incorrect link in calendar (i.e. don't just re-use day 1 invite). Reason for this is that it goes to automatically update your attendance on the course and if the instructor isn't vigilant in making sure everyone attends "in the system" you may not get the credit. I am currently trying to remediate this situation that has happened to me. 2) Check your enrolments. Not everyone wants to take the exam but it is good to have proof that you attended. The link to use is https://esi.learnondemand.net/ - Course attendance will be listed under "My Training" with a completion status - See above warning on that one. I was looking for this and didn't even realise it was there! 3) Check your courses before you click on them to make sure they are correct. I know it sounds obvious but with that many languages and time zones it can be super easy to end up on one at some stupid time or even worse, a language you don't speak. It just pays to make sure and do it in advance so that a cancellation doesn't result in a black mark. 4) Don't be tempted to use your own Azure lab for the labs I know, cloudslice isn't great and its slow BUT the one advantage is that your instructor can actually see your lab and if you get stuck, help figure out what's wrong. They can't do that if you use your own sub. That's it for now. Hope it helps. submitted by /u/IT_ISNT101 [link] [comments]

  • DP-900 Exam Prep Question
    by /u/HavenHexed (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 20, 2022 at 5:54 pm

    I have been through the Microsoft Learn modules, watched John Savill's exam cram, and been through Scott Duffy's videos on Udemy for the DP-900. I bought the exam reference with the intention of reading it through, but it seems way more in depth than what the videos and learn modules presented. I did sign up for the Microsoft Virtual Training Days for the Data Fundamentals. Is all the extra information needed in the book? I am not a data admin or anything. I am more in systems admin with my boss wanting me to learn more about Azure. I have taken the AZ-900 and figured this would be a good one as well. Just trying to figure out if the book is worth the read for the exam. submitted by /u/HavenHexed [link] [comments]

  • struggling with az-104
    by /u/scootscootman1 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 20, 2022 at 11:24 am

    Hi All, I've been studying for az-104 for coming up 5 months, and also using it daily at my job (amongst a barrel of other random IT systems) i am really struggling. i decided to buy the measure up exam and i got 33%. I already failed az-104 once with 685. The next attempt my work has given my a voucher so i can't afford to fail it. i think i did so bad on the measureup because, first attempt and im really tired right now. i think i am just having problems remebering all the stuff. my memory isn't that great, i have anxiety and depression, which really makes that much worse. im actually starting to question if its even possible for me to pass this, i've done so much study and i was so enthusiastic, but now im just dead, my employer thinks im useless because they thought i should have passed it within 3 months. sometimes i try to study and the brain just can't tune in, i just get distracted by any small thing. i really want to focus on it, but i think my passion for this is just gone. what to do? maybe im using the wrong training materials? so far 80% complete on acloudguru az-104 course some of the microsoft learn modules whizzlab practise exams - all complete 4-5 with 80%+ just got the measureup exam today - 33% on first go i've been watching some john savill and also have my own tenant - spun up various vms' player with policy and backups, log analytics workspaces load balancers nsgs. ​ what am i doing wrong? i am beggining to think im just dumb - or its not that im dumb as its not like i can't understand what im reading, i just forget it quite quickly for some reason? submitted by /u/scootscootman1 [link] [comments]

    by /u/_-readit-_ (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 18, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    Huge thanks to this subreddit for helping me kick start my Azure journey. I have over 2 decades of experience in IT and this is my 3rd Azure certification as I already have AZ-900 and DP-900. Here's the order in which I passed my AWS and Azure certifications: SAA>DVA>SOA>DOP>SAP>CLF|AZ-900>DP-900>AI-900 I have no plans to take this certification now but had to as the free voucher is expiring in a couple of days. So I started preparing on Friday and took the exam on Sunday. But give it more time if you can. Here's my study plan for AZ-900 and DP-900 exams: finish a popular video course aimed at the cert watch John Savill's study/exam cram take multiple practice exams scoring in 90s This is what I used for AI-900: Alan Rodrigues' video course (includes 2 practice exams) 👌 John Savill's study cram 💪 practice exams by Scott Duffy and in28Minutes Official 👍 knowledge checks in AI modules from MS learn docs 🙌 I also found the below notes to be extremely useful as a refresher. It can be played multiple times throughout your preparation as the exam cram part is just around 20 minutes. https://youtu.be/utknpvV40L0 👏 Just be clear on the topics explained by the above video and you'll pass AI-900. I advise you to watch this video at the start, middle and end of your preparation. All the best in your exam. submitted by /u/_-readit-_ [link] [comments]

  • AZ-900 Practice Exam -- is it out of date?
    by /u/cmh55264 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 17, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Hi all, I am taking my AZ-900 certification exam next week. I decided to take a practice exam on it today and could have done better. As I went through the learning modules I took detailed notes as well as make flashcards for all the key concepts/resources that are available through Azure. I bought the practice exam and took one today and was confused by a number of the questions because they seemed to relate to terminology that I did not take in my notes nor that I remember reading about at all in the learning modules. I am aware that Microsoft did some switching around regarding the requirements of the exam. After looking at what changed, it seems to me that most if not all of the terms I had encountered are no longer tested on. That then made me wonder if the practice tests that are offered now are out of date with the changes to the exam that Microsoft made back in May. For example, I saw many questions about advanced security and I know the newer course content greatly reduced information for this topic. Do any of you know if my assumption is correct or am I just missing something? I know that I still have work to do on my end for full preparation but it struck me odd the number of topics that were on the practice test that seem to either have been reduced or all out removed with the update in May. Any advice for the exam is appreciated too. submitted by /u/cmh55264 [link] [comments]

  • Passed AZ-104 this morning with 3 weeks of studying
    by /u/ciscogenius320 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 15, 2022 at 10:07 pm

    First time post, but this community helped me push through. I passed the AZ-104 early this morning with only 3 weeks of studying. I took the midnight exam ( I’m a night owl). I put in about 3-4 hours a day (some days 5-6 hours) and sacrificed doing the things that I enjoy and even time with family/friends. For anyone who feels as if it is not possible or very tough, I’m telling you that Yes it may be tough, but it will be worth it. I used an Az-104 course from YouTube (A Guide To Cloud), and also the Az-104 lab course on YouTube (Cloud Security Training & Consulting). I also used practice exams similar to the real exam that you can find online. It was a tough one, but if you put the work in-You 2 can pass this exam. I actually thought I failed while in the middle of the test because some questions I have never seen, so I was surprised when I saw “CONGRATULATIONS” lol. Good luck to everyone on their exam journey. submitted by /u/ciscogenius320 [link] [comments]

  • Passed AZ-104 exam today with a month prep time
    by /u/Mac_PPK (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on September 15, 2022 at 3:42 pm

    Hi All, This sub has been super helpful with tips on my AZ-104 study journey and passing of the exam. So, I also would like to share my own experience. As stated in subject, my company is moving to Azure direction and encouraging us [nice word used - not pushing 🙂 ] to take AZ-104 exam as soon as possible after the training finished. So, I only have about a month to study between exam date and training. Due to my limited knowledge to Azure, I was really scare that I will not be able to pass the exam. But I went through a lot of suggestions on this reddit sub, quora, etc, and got an idea on my exam journey. During my exam prep time, I tried to spent daily at least one hour doing labs during work days after working hour. Walked thru Microsoft Learn materials AZ-104 topics. Watched John Savill's study cram a couple of times. Joined practice exams on tutorialdojo and Whizlabs (Planned to buy from measureup; but it's expensive, so I just decided to split money on those above two) I learned a lot of unnoticed subjects from those practice question sets. Highly recommended to go thru the practice exams; you will find unfamiliar part for sure. Tutorialdojo has closet type of question to actual exam, I'd say. Explore Microsoft Docs for unclear topic from those above exams. In the actual exam, questions on storage part are harder than I expected but questions on Networking part are okay (although I expected them to be more difficult). In the end, I passed but not with highest mark; however, I'm happy that I passed and my journey with Azure will continue. Thank you all and wish you happy Azure journey! submitted by /u/Mac_PPK [link] [comments]

  • Drive digital transformation, get Cloud Digital Leader certified
    by (Training & Certifications) on September 13, 2022 at 4:00 pm

    As enterprises look to accelerate cloud adoption, it is critical to not only upskill your technical talent, but to focus on skilling your non-technical teams too. Investing in your collective workforce’s cloud proficiency helps ensure you fully embrace everyone’s potential, and make the most of your cloud investment.According to research shared in a recent IDC paper1, comprehensively trained organizations saw a bigger impact vs. narrowly trained organizations, with 133% greater improvement in employee retention, a 47% reduction in business risk and a 22% increase in innovation. This is where Cloud Digital Leader training and certification comes in. Most cloud training and certification is geared toward technical cloud practitioners, leaving non-technical (tech-adjacent) teams with little understanding of cloud technologies. Cloud Digital Leader bridges this gap, providing easy-to-understand training that enables everyone to understand the capabilities of cloud so that they can contribute to digital transformation in their organizations.In  a recent fireside chat with Google Cloud Partner Kyndryl, who have achieved over 1,000 Cloud Digital Leader certifications across their organization, they shared how the Cloud Digital Leader training and certification has led to significant time reduction within their pre-sales cycle:“Our sales teams who work with customers and learn about their challenges were able to apply the know-how from their Cloud Digital Leader education and certification. They can now guide the technical solution teams in the right direction, without having to pull them into the discovery phases of their customer interactions. As a result, we operated more quickly and efficiently,  as the sales teams were able to speak to the Google Cloud solutions very early on in the sales cycle. This accelerated the sales process, as the sales teams were therefore more confident in their Google Cloud knowledge, saving time and money for us, and the customer.” — Christoph Schwaiger, Google Cloud Business Development Executive, Global Strategic Alliances, Kyndryl.Empower your team’s cloud fluency, and discover your next phase of digital transformation.

  • Four non-traditional paths to a cloud career (and how to navigate them)
    by (Training & Certifications) on September 6, 2022 at 4:00 pm

    One thing I love about cloud is that it’s possible to succeed as a cloud engineer from all kinds of different starting points. It’s not necessarily easy; our industry remains biased toward hiring people who check a certain set of boxes such as having a university computer science degree. But cloud in particular is new enough, and has such tremendous demand for qualified talent, that determined engineers can and do wind up in amazing cloud careers despite coming from all sorts of non-traditional backgrounds.But still - it’s scary to look at all the experienced engineers ahead of you and wonder “How will I ever get from where I am to where they are?”A few months ago, I asked some experts at Google Cloud to help me answer common questions people ask as they consider making the career move to cloud. We recorded our answers in a video series called Cracking the Google Cloud Career that you can watch on the Google Cloud Tech YouTube channel. We tackled questions like…How do I go from a traditional IT background to a cloud job?You have a superpower if you want to move from an old-school IT job to the cloud: You already work in tech! That may give you access to colleagues and situations that can level up your cloud skills and network right in your current position. But even if that’s not happening, you don’t have to go back and start from square one. Your existing career will give you a solid foundation of professional experience that you can layer cloud skills on top of. Check out my video to see what skills I recommend polishing up before you make the jump to cloud interviews:How do I move from a help desk job to a cloud job?The help desk is the classic entry-level tech position, but moving up sometimes seems like an insurmountable challenge. Rishab Kumar graduated from a help desk role to a Technical Solutions Specialist position at Google Cloud. In his video, he shares his story and outlines some takeaways to help you plot your own path forward.Notably, Rishab calls out the importance of building a portfolio of cloud projects: cloud certifications helped him learn, but in the job interview he got more questions about the side projects he had implemented. Watch his full breakdown here:How do I switch from a non-technical career to the cloud?There’s no law that says you have to start your tech career in your early twenties and do nothing else for the rest of your career. In fact, many of the strongest technologists I know came from previous backgrounds as disparate as plumbing, professional poker, and pest control. That’s no accident: those fields hone operational and people skills that are just as valuable in cloud as anywhere else. But you’ll still need a growth mindset and lots of learning to land a cloud job without traditional credentials or previous experience in the space. Google Cloud’s Stephanie Wong came to tech from the pageant world and has some great advice about how to build a professional network that will help you make the switch to a cloud job. In particular, she recommends joining the no-cost Google Cloud Innovators program, which gives you inside access to the latest updates on Google Cloud services alongside a community of fellow technologists from around the globe.Stephanie also points out that you don’t have to be a software engineer to work in the cloud; there are many other roles like developer relations, sales engineers and solutions architects that stay technical and hands-on without building software every day.You can check out her full suggestions for transitioning to a tech career in this video:How do I get a job in the cloud without a computer-related college degree?No matter your age or technical skill level, it can be frustrating and intimidating to see role after role that requires a bachelor’s degree in a field such as IT or computer science. I’m going to let you in on a little secret: once you get that first job and add some experience to your skills, hardly anybody cares about your educational background anymore. But some recruiters and hiring managers still use degrees as a shortcut when evaluating people for entry-level jobs.Without a degree, you’ll have to get a bit creative in assembling credentials. First, consider getting certified. Cloud certifications like the Google Cloud Associate Cloud Engineer can help you bypass degree filters and get you an interview. Not to mention, they’re a great way to get familiar with the workings of your cloud. Google Cloud’s Priyanka Vergadia suggests working toward skill badges on Google Cloud Skills Boost; each skill badge represents a curated grouping of hands-on labs within a particular technology that can help you build momentum and confidence toward certification.Second, make sure you are bringing hands-on skills to the interview. College students do all sorts of projects to bolster their education. You can do this too - but at a fraction of the cost of a traditional degree. As Priyanka points out in this video, make sure you are up to speed on Linux, networking, and programming essentials before you apply:No matter your background, I’m confident you can have a fulfilling and rewarding career in cloud as long as you get serious about these two things:Own your credibility through certification and hands-on practice, andBuild strong connections with other members of the global cloud community.In the meantime, you can watch the full Cracking the Google Cloud Career playlist on the Google Cloud Tech YouTube channel. And feel free to start your networking journey by reaching out to me anytime on Twitter if you have cloud career questions - I’m happy to help however I can.Related ArticleShow off your cloud skills by completing the #GoogleClout weekly challengeComplete the weekly #GoogleClout challenge and show off your cloud skillsRead Article

  • Passed GCP Professional Cloud Architect
    by /u/electricninja911 (Google Cloud Platform Certification) on September 1, 2022 at 6:25 am

    First of all, I would like to start with the fact that I already have around 1 year of experience with GCP in depth, where I was working on GKE, IAM, storage and so on. I also obtained GCP Associate Cloud Engineer certification back in June as well, which helps with the preparation. I started with Dan Sullivan’s Udemy course for Professional Cloud Architect and did some refresher on the topics I was not familiar with such as BigTable, BigQuery, DataFlow and all that. His videos on the case studies helps a lot to understand what each case study scenario requires for designing the best cost-effective architecture. In order to understand the services in depth, I also went through the GCP documentation for each service at least once. It’s quite useful for knowing the syntax of the GCP commands and some miscellaneous information. As for practice exam, I definitely recommend Whizlabs. It helped me prepare for the areas I was weak at and helped me grasp the topics a lot faster than reading through the documentation. It will also help you understand what kind of questions will appear for the exam. I used TutorialsDojo (Jon Bonso) for preparation for Associate Cloud Engineer before and I can attest that Whizlabs is not that good. However, Whizlabs still helps a lot in tackling the tough questions that you will come across during the examination. One thing to note is that, there wasn’t even a single question that was similar to the ones from Whizlabs practice tests. I am saying this from the perspective of the content of the questions. I got totally different scenarios for both case study and non case study questions. Many questions focused on App Engine, Data analytics and networking. There were some Kubernetes questions based on Anthos, and cluster networking. I got a tough question regarding storage as well. I initially thought I would fail, but I pushed on and started tackling the multiple-choices based on process of elimination using the keywords in the questions. 50 questions in 2 hours is a tough one, especially due to the lengthy questions and multiple choices. I do not know how this compares to AWS Solutions Architect Professional exam in toughness. But some people do say GCP professional is tougher than AWS. All in all, I still recommend this certification to people who are working with GCP. It’s a tough one to crack and could be useful for future prospects. It’s a bummer that it’s only valid for 2 years. submitted by /u/electricninja911 [link] [comments]

  • Passed GCP: Cloud Digital Leader
    by /u/Kalad1nBrood (Google Cloud Platform Certification) on August 12, 2022 at 11:38 pm

    Hi everyone, First, thanks for all the posts people share. It helps me prep for my own exam. I passed the GCP: Cloud Digital Leader exam today and wanted to share a few things about my experience. Preparation I have access to ACloudGuru (AGU)and Udemy through work. I started one of the Udemy courses first, but it was clear the course was going beyond the scope of the Cloud Digital Leader certification. I switched over AGU and enjoyed the content a lot more. The videos were short and the instructor hit all the topics on the Google exam requirements sheet. AGU also has three - 50 question practices test. The practice tests are harder than the actual exam (and the practice tests aren't that hard). I don't know if someone could pass the test if they just watched the videos on Google Cloud's certification site, especially if you had no experience with GCP. Overall, I would say I spent 20 hrs preparing for the exam. I have my CISSP and I'm working on my CCSP. After taking the test, I realized I way over prepared. Exam Center It was my first time at this testing center and I wasn't happy with the experience. A few of the issues I had are: - My personal items (phone, keys) were placed in an unlocked filing cabinet - My desk are was dirty. There were eraser shreds (or something similar) and I had to move the keyboard and mouse and brush all the debris out of my work space - The laminated sheet they gave me looked like someone had spilled Kool-Aid on it - They only offered earplugs, instead of noise cancelling headphones Exam My recommendation for the exam is to know the Digital Transformation piece as well as you know all the GCP services and what they do. ​ I wish you all luck on your future exams. Onto GCP: Associate Cloud Engineer. submitted by /u/Kalad1nBrood [link] [comments]

    by /u/Themotionalman (Google Cloud Platform Certification) on August 11, 2022 at 9:40 am

    Hey so I would like to start my cloud journey. I just graduated in may and I’m lucky to have gotten a job in June. The company uses AWS the problem is I don’t see myself staying here long term. I currently do some front and back but I’d like to move more into cloud maybe later in life. I have used AWS and GCP on some personal projects nothing too intense. So I’d consider myself a noob. Here are my questions. How much preparation do you think is required for the cloud practitioner? After the CP I’d like to get a solutions architect dev architect I think and afterwards get the security specialist. Is this plan feasible, what would you change ? Last question something that might trigger a few, I’m afraid of vendor lock in, I know my company uses AWS and the best move to take would be to stick with them but here in France I see that GCP is more lucrative I am thinking of maybe doing just CP from AWS and pivoting, what do you think about this strategy, if any, what advice would you give to help me pick a platform or maybe you could tell me why you chose what you chose thanks in advance submitted by /u/Themotionalman [link] [comments]

    Enterprises across many industries are adopting artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) at a rapid pace. Many factors fuel this accelerated adoption, including a need to realize value out of the massive amounts of data generated by multichannel customer interactions and the increasing stores of data from all facets of an enterprise's operations. This growth prompts a question: what knowledge and skill sets are needed to help organizations leverage and scale AI and ML? To answer this question, it’s important to understand what types of transformations enterprises are going through as they aim to make better use of their data.Growing AI/ML Maturity Many large organizations have moved beyond pilot or sample AI/ML use cases within a single team to figuring out how to solidify their data science projects and scale them to other areas of the business. As data changes or gets updated, organizations need ways to continually optimize the outcomes from their ML models. Mainstreaming Data Science Data science has moved into the mainstream of many organizations. People working in various line-of-business teams — such as product, marketing and supply chain — are eager to apply predictive analytics. With this growth, decentralized data science teams are popping up all over a single enterprise. But many people looking to apply predictive techniques have limited training in data science or limited knowledge of the infrastructure fundamentals for production-scale AI/ML. Additionally, enterprises are faced with a proliferation of ad hoc technologies, tools and processes.  Increasing Complexity of Data Having achieved some early wins, often with structured or tabular data use cases, organizations are eager to derive value out of the massive amounts of unstructured data, including from language, vision, natural language and other categories. One role that organizations are increasingly turning to is the ML engineer.  What is a Machine Learning Engineer?I have observed that as organizations mature in their AI/ML practices, they expand from hiring mainly data scientists toward hiring people with ML engineering skills. A review of hundreds of ML engineer job postings sheds light on why this role is one way to meet the transformative needs of the enterprise. Examining the frequency of certain terms in the free text of the job postings surfaces several themes:SOFTWARE ENGINEERINGML engineers are closely affiliated with the software engineering function. Organizations hiring ML engineers have typically achieved some wins in their initial AI/ML pilots and they are moving up the ML adoption curve from implementing ML use cases to scaling, operationalizing and optimizing ML in their organizations. Many job postings emphasize the software engineering aspects of ML over the pure data science skills. ML engineers need to apply software engineering practices and write performant production-quality code. DATAEnterprises are looking for people with the ability to create pipelines or reusable processes for various aspects of ML workflows. This involves both collaborating with data engineers (another in-demand role) and creating the infrastructure for robust data practices throughout the end-to-end ML process. In other words, ML engineers create processes and partnerships to help with cleaning, labeling and working with large scale data from across the enterprise. PRODUCTIONMany employers look for ML engineers who have experience with the end-to-end ML process, especially taking ML models to production. ML engineers work with data scientists to productionize their work, building pipelines for continuous training, automated validation and version control of the model.  SYSTEMSMany ML engineers are hired to help organizations put the architecture, systems and best-practices in place to take AI/ML models to production. ML engineers deploy ML models to production either on cloud environments or on-premise infrastructure. The emphasis on systems and best practices helps to drive consistency as people with limited data science or infrastructure fundamentals learn to derive value from predictive analytics. This focus on systematizing AI/ML is also a critical prerequisite for developing an AI/ML governance strategy. This qualitative analysis of ML Engineering jobs is not based on an assessment of a specific job posting or even one specific to the enterprise I work in. Rather, it reflects a qualitative evaluation of general themes across the spectrum of publicly available job postings for ML engineers—a critical role for enterprises to scale AI/ML.In what teams do ML Engineers work?Within enterprises, ML engineers reside in a variety of teams, including data science, software engineering, research and development, product groups, process/operations and other business units.What industries seek talent to help productionize ML?While demand for ML engineers is at an all-time high, there are several industries that are at the forefront of hiring these roles. The industries with the highest demand for ML engineers include  computers and software, finance and banking and professional services. As AI and ML continue to grow and mature as a practice in enterprises, ML engineers play a pivotal role in helping to scale AI/ML usage and outcomes. ML engineers enable data scientists to focus on what they do best by establishing infrastructure, processes and best practices to realize business value from AI/ML models in production. This is especially the case as data volumes and complexity grows. Where to begin with building AI and ML skills? Google Cloud Skills Boost offers a number of courses that can help your teams build ML engineering skills on their path to achieving the Professional Machine Learning Engineer certification.

  • Google helps Indonesia advance education on cloud, machine learning, and mobile development through Bangkit academy
    by (Training & Certifications) on June 16, 2022 at 4:00 pm

    Indonesia is leading the way for digital transformation in Southeast Asia. According to Google’s e-Conomy South East Asia report, the country’s 2030 Gross Merchandise Value - the value of online retailing to consumers -  could be twice the value of the whole of Southeast Asia today.  This growth means that many companies need more qualified IT graduates and employees with digital skills than they have today. Fast-growing tech companies need more qualified IT graduates, and employees with digital skills. According to the World Bank, Indonesia needs an additional nine million people with digital skills by 2030. The shortage of technical talent reiterates the need to invest in a reliable skills pipeline. Following years of digital talent developments in Indonesia, Google has become a supporter of Bangkit, an academy designed to produce high-caliber technical talent for Indonesian technology companies and startups. Bangkit has facilitated a multi-stakeholder collaboration between Google, government, industry, and universities across Indonesia. Last year, the President of Indonesia and the Ministry of Education and Culture, Research, and Technology, acknowledged Bangkit’s significant impact, with 3,000 students completing nearly 15,000 courses and specialisations. Building on last year’s success, Bangkit started its 2022 program in February, offering three learning paths to students:Cloud computing with Google Cloud, preparing students for the Google Associate Cloud Engineer certification. Some of the course components are also available online Mobile development with Android, preparing students for the Google Associate Android Developer exam. An online version is available here. Machine learning with Tensorflow, getting students ready to take the Tensorflow Developer certification. Some of the online courses are available here for others.Bangkit 2022 has enrolled 3,100 university students who will take a five month study course, obtaining university study credit, as well as industry certifications. The program accepts diverse cohorts of people who are passionate about preparing for a tech career in the near future, with support and encouragement for women, people with disabilities, and students from across Indonesia to apply. Since its pilot in 2019, Bangkit has been guided by three principles:  Industry-led: provides curriculum and instructors from industry experts, including Google, GoTo and Traveloka. Instructors include key figures such as Laurence Moroney (Google, Lead AI Advocate), Google Developer Experts, and other committed professionals. Immersive: combines online learning methods conducted in both individual and group settings.  Interdisciplinary: contains knowledge and best practices in tech, soft skills, and English to provide complete career readiness. The program runs from February to July 2022, and has a 900-hour curriculum throughout the 18-week learning experience. Benefits for students participating in Bangkit include:Study credit conversion Job opportunities at our career fairGoogle Cloud, TensorFlow and AAD exam vouchersIncubation funds and mentorship support from industryTowards the end of Bangkit 2022, students will team up for the Capstone Project challenge to propose solutions to some of the nation’s most pressing problems, such as environmentalism, accessibility, and more. The top 15 teams will be selected to receive funding to incubate their capstone projects. These education and career-preparedness offerings are provided at no cost.Google is partnering with industry, governments, universities, and employers to help meet the skill demands of today. From supporting the State of Ohio to offer tech skills to residents, to working with the University of Minnesota-Rochester to create a customized health sciences degree program, Google is here to help our partners prepare those they serve for a cloud-first world.

  • Why IT leaders choose Google Cloud certification for their teams
    by (Training & Certifications) on May 27, 2022 at 4:00 pm

    As organizations worldwide move to the cloud, it’s become increasingly crucial to provide teams with confidence and the right skills to get the most out of cloud technology. With demand for cloud expertise exceeding the supply of talent, many businesses are looking for new, cost-effective ways to keep up.When ongoing skills gaps stifle productivity, it can cost you money. In Global Knowledge’s 2021 report, 42% of IT decision-makers reported having “difficulty meeting quality objectives” as a result of skills gaps, and, in an IDC survey cited in the same Global Knowledge report, roughly 60% of organizations described a lack of skills as a cause for lost revenue. In today’s fast-paced environment, businesses with cloud knowledge are in a stronger position to achieve more. So what more could you be doing to develop and showcase cloud expertise in your organization?Google Cloud certification helps validate your teams’ technical capabilities, while demonstrating your organization’s commitment to the fast pace of the cloud.What certification offers that experience doesn’t is peace of mind. I’m not only talking about self-confidence, but also for our customers. Having us certified, working on their projects, really gives them peace of mind that they’re working with a partner who knows what they’re doing. Niels Buekers, managing director at Fourcast BVBAWhy get your team Google Cloud certified?When you invest in cloud, you also want to invest in your people. Google Cloud certification equips your teams with the skills they need to fulfill your growing business. Speed up technology implementation Organizations want to speed up transformation and make the most of their cloud investment.Nearly 70% of partner organizations recognize that certifications speed up technology implementation and lead to greater staff productivity, according to a May 2021 IDC Software Partner Survey. The same report also found that 85% of partner IT consultants agree that “certification represents validation of extensive product and process knowledge.”Improve client satisfaction and successGetting your teams certified can be the first step to improving client satisfaction and success. Research of more than 600 IT consultants and resellers in a September 2021 IDC study found that “fully certified teams met 95% of their clients’ objectives, compared to a 36% lower average net promoter score for partially certified teams.”Motivate your team and retain talentIn today’s age of the ongoing Great Resignation, IT leaders are rightly concerned about employee attrition, which can result in stalled projects, unmet business objectives, and new or overextended team members needing time to ramp up. In other words, attrition hurts.But when IT leaders invest in skills development for their teams, talent tends to stick around. According to a business value paper from IDC, comprehensive training leads to 133% greater employee retention compared to untrained teams. When organizations help people develop skills, people stay longer, morale improves, and productivity increases. Organizations wind up with a classic win-win situation as business value accelerates. Finish your projects ahead of scheduleWith your employees feeling supported and well equipped to handle workloads, they can also stay engaged and innovate faster with Google Cloud certifications. “Fully certified teams are 35% more likely than partially certified teams to finish projects ahead of schedule, typically reaching their targets more than two weeks early,” according to research in an IDC InfoBrief.Certify your teamsGoogle Cloud certification is more than a seal of approval – it can be your framework to increase staff tenure, improve productivity, satisfy your customers, and obtain other key advantages to launch your organization into the future. Once you get your teams certified, they’ll join a trusted network of IT professionals in the Google Cloud certified community, with access to resources and continuous  learning opportunities.To discover more about the value of certification for your team, download the IDC paper today and invite your teams to join our upcoming webinar and get started on their certification journey.Related ArticleHow to become a certified cloud professionalHow to become a certified cloud professionalRead Article

  • How we’re keeping up with the increasing demand for the Google Workspace Administrator role
    by (Training & Certifications) on April 29, 2022 at 4:00 pm

    We’ve rebranded the Professional Collaboration Engineer Certification to the Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certification and updated the learning path. To mark the moment, we sat down with Erik Geerdink from SADA to talk about how the Google Workspace Administrator role and demand for this skill set has changed over the years. Erik is a Deployment Engineer and Pod Lead. He holds a Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certificationand has worked with Google Workspace for more than six years.What was it like starting out as a Google Workspace Administrator?When I first started, I was doing Google Workspace Support as a Level 2 Administrator. At that time, there were fewer admin controls for Google Workspace. There were calendar issues, some mail routing issues, maybe a little bit of data loss prevention (DLP), but that was about it.About 5 years ago, I transferred into Google Deployment and really got to see all that went on with deploying Google Workspace and troubleshooting advanced issues. Since then, what you can accomplish in the admin console has really taken off. There’s still Gmail and Calendar configurations, but the security posture that Google offers now—they’ve really upped their game. The extent of DLP isn’t just Gmail and Drive anymore; it extends into Chat. And we’re doing a lot of Context-Aware Access to make sure users only have as much access as IT compliance allows in our deployments.

Now, we not only do training with Google Workspace admins for our projects, we also talk to their Google Cloud counterparts as well.Google Workspace is changing all the time, and the weekly updates that Google sends out are great. As an engineering team, every week on Wednesday, we review each Google Workspace update that’s come out to understand how they affect us, our clients, and our upcoming projects. There’s a lot to it. It’s not just a little admin role anymore. It’s a strategic technology role.What motivated you to get Google Cloud Certified?I spent the first 15 years of my career doing cold server room roles, and I knew I had to get cloudy. I wanted to work with Google, and it was a no-brainer given the organization’s reputation for innovation. I knew this certification exam was the one to get me in the door. The Professional Google Workspace Administrator certification was required to level up as an administrator and to make sure our business kept getting the most out of Google Workspace. How has the demand for certified Google Workspace Admins changed recently? Demand has absolutely gone up. We are growing so much, and we need more professionals with this certification. It’s required for all of our new hires. When I see a candidate that already has the certification, they go to the top of the list. I’ll skip all the other resumes to find someone who has this experience. We’re searching globally—not just in North America—to find the right people to fill this strategic role.Explore the new learning pathIn order to keep up with the changing demands of this role, we’ve rebranded the Professional Collaboration Engineer Certification to the Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certification and updated the learning path. The learning path now aligns with the improved admin console. We’ve replaced the readings with videos for a better learning experience: in total, we added 17 new videos across 5 courses to match new features and functionality. Earn the Professional Google Workspace Administrator Certification to distinguish yourself among your peers and showcase your skills.Related ArticleUnlock collaboration with Google Workspace EssentialsIntroducing Google Workspace Essentials Starter, a no-cost offering to bring modern collaboration to work.Read Article

CompanyA is planning on making some significant changes to their governance solution. They have asked for your assistance with recommendations and questions. Here are the specific requirements.

– Consistency across subscriptions. It appears each subscription has different policies for the creation of virtual machines. The IT department would like to standardize the policies across the Azure subscriptions.

– Ensure critical storage is highly available. There are several critical applications that use storage. The IT department wants to ensure the storage is made highly available across regions.

– Identify R&D costs. The CTO wants to know how much a new project is costing. The costs are spread out across multiple departments.

– ISO compliance. CompanyA wants to certify that it complies with the ISO 27001 standard. The standard will require resources groups, policy assignments, and templates.

How can CompanyA to ensure policies are implemented across multiple subscriptions?

Create a management group and place all the relevant subscriptions in the new management group.
A management group could include all the subscriptions. Then a policy could be scoped to the management group and applied to all the subscriptions.

How can CompanyA ensure applications use geo-redundancy to create highly available storage applications?

Add an Azure policy that requires geo-redundant storage.
An Azure policy can enforce different rules over your resource configurations.

How can CompanyA report all the costs associated with a new product?

Add a resource tag to identify which resources are used for the new product.
Resource tagging provides extra information, or metadata, about your resources. You could then run a cost report on all resources with that tag.

Which governance tool should CompanyA use for the ISO 27001 requirements?

Azure blueprints.
Azure blueprints will deploy all the artifacts for ISO 27001 compliance.

You are configuring an Azure Automation runbook using the Azure sandbox.
For your runbook to work, you need to install a PowerShell module. You would like to minimize the administrative overhead for maintaining and operating your runbook.
Which option should you choose to install an additional PowerShell module?

Navigate to Shared Resources > Modules, and configure the additional module.
Additional PowerShell modules can be added to the sandbox environment for use by your runbooks.

CompanyA is planning on making some significant changes to their identity and access management solution. They have asked for your assistance on some recommendations and questions. Here are the specific requirements.

– Device access to company applications. The CTO has agreed to allow some level of device access. Employees at the company’s retail stores will now be able to access certain company applications. This access, however, should be restricted to only approved devices.

– Company reorganization. A company-wide reorganization has affected many employees. These employees are now in new roles. The IT team needs to ensure users have the correct access based on their new jobs.

– External developer accounts. A new development project requires external software developers to access company data files. The IT team needs to create user accounts for approximately five developers.

– User sign-in attempts. A recent audit of user sign-ins attempts revealed anonymous IP addresses and unusual locations. The IT team wants to require multifactor authentication for these attempted sign-ins.

How can CompanyA ensure that employees at the company’s retail stores can access company applications only from approved tablet devices?

Conditional access: Conditional Access enables you to require users to access your applications only from approved, or managed, devices.

What should CompanyA do to ensure employees have the correct permissions for their job role?

Require an access review: An access review would give managers an opportunity to validate the employees access.

What should CompanyA do to give access to the partner developers?

Invite the developers as guest users to their directory: In Business-to-Business scenarios guest user accounts are created. You can then apply the appropriate permissions

What solution would be best for the user sign-in attempts requirement?

Create a sign-in risk policy: That’s correct. A sign-in risk policy can identify anonymous IP and atypical locations. Secondary multifactor authentication can then be required.

You have been asked to connect VNET1 and VNET2, to allow private communication between resources in each virtual network. Do you need to modify either of the two virtual networks before virtual network peering is supported?

Yes: IP address ranges cannot overlap. One of the virtual networks must have their address space changed before VNet peering would be able to be configured.

You are architecting identity management for a hybrid environment, and you plan to use Azure AD Connect with password hash sync (PHS).
It is important that you design the solution to be highly available. How would you implement high availability for the synchronization service?

Configure an additional server with Azure AD Connect in staging mode.

Azure AD Connect can be configured in staging mode, which helps with high availability.

You work for a company with multiple Active Directory domains: exampledomain1.com and test.lab.com. Your company would like to use Azure AD Connect to synchronize your on-premises Active Directory domain, exampledomain1.com, with Azure AD. You do not wish to synchronize test.lab.com.

Which tasks should you complete, requiring minimal administrative effort and causing the least disruption to the existing environment?

Run the Azure AD Connect wizard, and configure Domain and OU filtering.

You are architecting a mission-critical processing solution for your company. The solution will leverage virtual machines for the processing tier, and it is critical that high performance levels are maintained at all times.
You need to leverage a managed disk that guarantees up to 900 MB/s throughput and 2,000 IOPS — but also minimizes costs.
Which of the following would you use within your solution?

Premium SSD Managed Disks:  Premium SSDs provide high performance and low latency, and include guaranteed capacity, IOPS, and throughput.

CompanyA wants to reduce storage costs by reducing duplicate content and, whenever applicable, migrating it to the cloud. The company would like a solution that centralizes maintenance while still providing nation-wide access for customers. Customers should be able to browse and purchase items online even in a case of a failure affecting an entire Azure region. Here are some specific requirements.

  • Warranty document retention. The company’s risk and legal teams requires warranty documents be kept for three years.

  • New photos and videos. The company would like each product to have a photo or video to demonstrate the product features.

  • External vendor development. A vendor will create and develop some of the online ecommerce features. The developer will need access to the HTML files, but only during the development phase.

  • Product catalog updates. The product catalog is updated every few months. Older versions of the catalog aren’t viewed frequently but must be available immediately if accessed.

What is the best way for CompanyA to protect their warranty information?

Time-based retention policy: With a time-based retention policy, users can set policies to store data for a specified interval. When a time-based retention policy is in place, objects can be created and read, but not modified or deleted.

What type of storage should CompanyA use for their photos and videos?

Blob storage: That’s correct. Blob storage is best for their photos.

What is the best way to provide the developer access to the ecommerce HTML files?

Shared access signatures: That’s correct. Shared access signatures provide secure delegated access. This functionality can be used to define permissions and how long access is allowed.

Which access tier should be used for the older versions of the product catalog?

Cool access tier: That’s correct. The cool access tier is for content that wouldn’t be viewed frequently but must be available immediately if accessed.

What tool would you use to identify underutilized and idle Azure resources in order to help reduce overall spend?

Azure Advisor: Advisor helps you optimize and reduce your overall Azure spend by identifying idle and underutilized resources. Reference

You work as a network administrator for a company. You manage several virtual machines within the following virtual network:

  • NameVNET1
  • Address space: 10.1.0.0/16
  • SubnetSUBNET1 (10.1.1.0/24)

You need to configure DNS for a VM called VM1, that is located in SUBNET1. DNS should be set to 8.8.8.8. All other VMs must keep their existing settings.

What should you do?

Navigate to the network interface of VM1, DNS Servers, and enable Custom DNS Servers and set to 8.8.8.8.

Custom DNS can be set at the network interface level, so that the settings only apply for a specific virtual machine.

You are architecting a web application that constantly reads and writes important medical imaging data in blob storage. To ensure the web application is resilient, you have proposed the use of storage account failover. Management has asked you whether any data loss might occur for this solution, in the event of a failover. How would you respond?

There may be data loss, and the extent of data loss can be estimated using the Last Sync Time.

The Last Sync Time property provides an indication of how far the secondary is behind from the primary. This can be used to estimate the extent of data loss that may occur. 

What storage service should you implement for an application that streams video content?

Azure Blobs: Azure blobs are used for storing large amounts of unstructured data, such as documents, images, and video files. This service is best used for streaming audio and video, particularly over HTTP/S.

What storage service should you implement for an application that needs to access data using SMB?

Azure Files: Azure files allow you to create and maintain highly available file shares that are accessible anywhere. They can be considered as a replacement to traditional file servers. They provide SMB access.

You are architecting a mission-critical solution for your company using virtual machines.
The solution must qualify for a Microsoft service level agreement (SLA) of 99.95%.
You deploy your solution to a single virtual machine in an availability set. The virtual machine uses premium storage. Does this meet the required SLA?

No: The virtual machine does use premium storage; however, this only provides a 99.9% SLA.

You are implementing Azure Backup using the Microsoft Azure Backup Server.
Which of the following would you use to allow the server to register with your recovery services vault?

Vault Credentials: Vault Credentials are used by the Microsoft Azure Backup Server software to register with the vault.

You are developing a solution on a server hosted on-premises. The solution needs to access data within Azure Key Vault.
Which two options would you use to ensure the application has access to Azure Key Vault?

Register the application in Azure AD and use a client secret.
To allow an on-premises application to authenticate with Azure AD, it can be registered in Azure AD and given a client secret (or client certificate). If this application was hosted on a supported Azure service, it could have been possible to use a managed identity instead.

Configure an access policy in Azure Key Vault.
To allow access to Key Vault, any identity (application, user, etc.) must be provided permissions using an Access Policy.

You have a Windows virtual machine within Azure, which must be backed up.
You have the following requirements:
– Back up the virtual machine three times per day
– Include system state backups
You configure a backup to a recovery services vault using the Microsoft Azure Recovery Services (MARS) agent.
Does this fulfill the requirements above?

Yes: The Microsoft Azure Recovery Services (MARS) agent can perform backups of files, folders, and system states up to three times a day.

You are planning a migration of machines to Azure from your on-premises Hyper-V host.
You would like to estimate how much it will cost to migrate your operating machines to Azure. Which of the following two items would you include in your migration solution?
The effort required to estimate pricing, and then ultimately go on to perform a migration, should be minimized.

Azure Migrate Project: All migrations (both assessment and migration) require an Azure Migrate Project for the storage of related metadata.

You are implementing Azure Blueprints to help improve standards and compliance for your Azure environment.
You would like to ensure that when an Azure Blueprint is used, a user is assigned ‘owner’ permissions to a specific resource group defined in the blueprint.
Does Azure Blueprints provide this functionality?

Yes: Azure Blueprints includes several different artifacts, one of which is ‘Role Assignment’. This allows a user to be assigned permissions as part of the blueprint definition.

You are planning a migration from on-premises to Azure.
Your on-premises environment is made up of the following:
– VMware hosted virtual machines
– Hyper-V hosted virtual machines
– Physical servers
Will the Azure Migrate: Server Migration tool provided by Microsoft support your environment for migrations to Azure?

Yes, for VMware, Hyper-V, and physical machines. The Azure Migrate: Server Migration tool support migrating VMware VMs, Hyper-V VMs, and physical servers.

For a new container image you are developing, you need to ensure a local HTML file, index.html, is included in the image. Which command would you include in the Dockerfile?

COPY ./index.html /usr/share/nginx/html

The COPY command can be used within a Dockerfile to copy files and directories from source to destination.

You have developed a financial management application for your company.
It is currently hosted as an Azure App Service Web App within Azure.
To improve security, you need to ensure that the web application is only accessible when users connect from your head-office IP address of 14.78.162.190.
Within the Azure Portal settings for your web app, which section would you use to configure this security?

Networking > Access Restrictions
Access Restrictions allows you to filter inbound connectivity to Azure App service, based on the IP address of the requesting user/service.
This meets the requirements of this scenario, as an Access Restriction could be configured for the Web App. To configure this, an ALLOW rule would be created for the web app (and the management interface, SCM, if needed). Adding the ALLOW rule for the IP address of 13.77.161.179 would automatically create a DENY ALL rule, which will prevent any other network location from accessing this resource.

You are responsible for improving the availability of a web application. The web application has the following characteristics:
– Hosted using Azure App Service.
– Leverages an Azure SQL back-end.
You need to configure Azure SQL Database to meet the following needs:
Must be able to continue operations in the event of a region failure.
Must support automatic failover in the event of failure.
You must recommend a solution that requires the least amount of effort to implement, and can manage in the event of a failover. Which configuration do you recommend?

Azure SQL auto-failover group: Using Azure SQL auto-failover groups provides protection at a geographic scale. By using the read-write listener, an application will seamlessly point to the primary, even in the event of a failover. Azure SQL auto-failover groups simplify the deployment and management of geo-replicated databases. It supports replication, and failover, for one or more databases on Azure SQL Database, or Azure SQL Managed Instances. A key benefit of auto-failover groups, is the built-in management of DNS for read, and read-write listeners.

You have been asked to implement high availability for an Azure SQL Managed Instance.
The solution is critical, and data loss must be minimized. If the data platform fails you must wait 1 hour before automatic failover occurs.
You must determine: (1) How to configure replication. (2) How to configure the 1 hour delay.

Enable replication using Auto-Failover Groups. Enable the 1 hour delay using the Grace Period.
Auto-Failover Groups are supported by Azure SQL Managed Instances, and the Grace Period is used to define how many hours to wait before an automatic read/write failover occurs.

You are helping to architect a social media application.
The solution must ensure that all users read data in the order it has been completely written.
You propose the use of Cosmos DB. What else do you include in your proposal to meet the requirements?

Cosmos DB Strong Consistency: Strong consistency ensures that reads are guaranteed to return the most recent committed write. This is useful when order matters.

You need to configure high availability for Azure SQL Databases.
You would like the service to include the following:
– Automatic failover policy.
– Ability to manually failover.
– DNS management for primary read/write access.
You configure Azure SQL Active Geo-Replication. Does this meet the requirements?

No: Active Geo-Replication does not include DNS automatically managed for primary read/write access. This is a feature of auto-failover groups. The inclusion of DNS for both the primary read/write endpoint, and the secondary read endpoint, reduces the management overhead for ensuring applications are pointing to the correct resources in the event of a disaster.

Question 7: Select the concept that is defined as ensuring that servers are available if a single data center goes offline.

A. Scalability

B. Fault tolerance

C. Elasticity

D. Agility

Answer 7:

B

Notes 7:

Fault tolerance is the property that enables a system to continue operating properly in the event of the failure of one or more of its components. In Azure, it refers to ensuring that a portion of the production systems are available online (via a failover cluster, available set, or available zone) if a subset of the system components (or an entire data center) goes offline.

Reference 7: Fault Tolerance

Question 8: In regards to comparing Public Cloud and Private Cloud, which of these best describe the characteristics of a Public Cloud?

A. No-upfront costs

B. More control over the security

C. Less reliability

D. Less maintenance

Answer 8:

A and D

Notes 8

The public cloud provides a pay-as-you-go pricing model which can lead to lower costs than those in private cloud solutions where capital expenditures are high.

The public cloud provides agility to provision and de-provision resources quickly with far less maintenance than that of private cloud solutions.

Reference 8: Pay as you go

Question 9: Which of the following are considered capital expenditures (CapEx)?

A. Storage area network

B. Cloud-based virtual machine

C. Office 365 licenses

D. Hyper-V host server

Answer 9:

A and D

Notes 9:

Storage costs are typically considered CapEx and include storage hardware components and the cost of supporting them. Depending on the application and level of fault tolerance, centralized storage can be expensive.

Server costs are considered CapEx and include all server hardware components and the cost of supporting them. When purchasing servers, make sure to design for fault tolerance and redundancy (e.g., server clustering, redundant power supplies, and uninterruptible power supplies). When a server needs to be replaced or added to a data center, you need to pay for the computer. This can affect your immediate cash flow because you must pay for the server up front.

Reference 9: Storage area networkHyper-V host server


Question 10: You are in the process of migrating your existing on-premises SQL databases to Azure. You will migrate them to Azure SQL databases, as opposed to deploying SQL database servers in Azure. What kind of cloud service would this be considered?

A. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

B. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

C. Serverless

D. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)

Answer 10:

B

Notes 10:

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud with resources that enable you to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated, cloud-enabled enterprise applications. An Azure SQL instance would be considered a PaaS service.

Reference 10: PAAS

Question 11: Which of the following statements are true for IaaS cloud services?

A. The client is responsible for purchasing all Operating System (OS) host licensing.

B. Services can be scaled automatically to support system load.

C. The client has complete control over the host operating system.

D. The client is responsible for all guest OS and application updates.

Answer 11:

B and D

Notes 11:

IaaS host services are scaled automatically to combat increased system load and scaled back during periods of inactivity.

The cloud service provider performs all underlying hardware, OS, and middleware updates. The client performs all guest OS and application updates.

Question 12: Which of the following tools can be used to manage Azure resources on a Google Chromebook?

A. Azure portal

B. PowerShell

C. Azure Cloud Shell

Azure Logic Apps is a cloud service that helps you automate and orchestrate tasks, business processes, and workflows when you need to integrate apps, data, systems, and services across enterprises or organizations. Logic Apps simplifies how you design and build scalable solutions for app integration, data integration, system integration, enterprise application integration (EAI), and business-to-business (B2B) communication, whether in the cloud, on-premises, or both.

For example, here are just a few workloads you can automate with logic apps:Process and route orders across on-premises systems and cloud services.

Send email notifications with Office 365 when events happen in various systems, apps, and services.

Move uploaded files from an SFTP or FTP server to Azure Storage.

Monitor tweets for a specific subject, analyze the sentiment, and create alerts or tasks for items that need review.

For new logic apps that run in the public or “global” Azure Logic Apps service, you pay only for what you use. These logic apps use a consumption-based plan and pricing model.

What is Azure VM temporary storage?

 

In Azure, every VM – regardless if Linux or Windows – gets a temporary disk assigned automatically. This temporary disk is located on the physical server (the hypervisor) where the Azure VM is hosted and is non-persistent. Disks used by the operating system or additionally added data disks are persistent disks and stored in Azure Storage.

Azure VM’s can be moved from its current host to new host at any time due to maintenance, hardware failures or other reasons. In such an event, the data from the temporary storage will not preserve or moved to the new host. Apart from the hardware failures, there are many other reasons data from the temporary disk will be lost:

  • Resizing of the VM
  • Restarting of the VM
  • Moving from one host to another
  • Updating/upgrading of host

Really, the temporary disk should never be used for data that has to be persistent. To avoid misconfiguration, the disk also has the drive label “Temporary Storage” and includes a text file “DATALOSS_WARNING_README.txt”. Read more here…

Does Azure VM include a Windows license?

It depends on the virtual machine type we talk about. Some Azure virtual machines include a Windows operating system license in their price (some even include a SQL Server). Some do not, however, there is an “Azure Hybrid Use Benefit” in certain Microsoft licensing programs, where basically the customer can use its previously acquired software licenses on Azure virtual machines (“bring you own license”). Also, there are Azure virtual machines available with different Linux distributions (both commercial and community), Windows Server license is obviously not included in these. Continue reading here

Please consult the Windows virtual machine pricing guide of Azure for details: Pricing – Windows Virtual Machines | Microsoft Azure

Does Azure VM cost include an OS disk?

Hello. Yes They charge you for the disk usage too. So its Disk, Network, License (if Windows Server Instance) and Processor/RAM that are taken into consideration

Why don’t I see the N-Series (vga enabled) VMs in my Azure vm sizes list (I have Bizspark subscription)?
 
It has nothing to do with BizSpark. N series VMs are generally available since 1 December, 2016 (Azure N-Series: General availability on December 1 ), but only in select Azure datacenter regions. Please consult the Azure Products by Region | Microsoft Azure website for regional availability.

What is a data disk in Azure VM?

 

What are things to look out for when choosing a location for your Microsoft Azure VM?

 
The argument in placing a cloud vm would be performance. Performance in the cloud world means cost. The better performance you need the more its going to cost you. But the other side of that is the faster you can solve the problem you are trying to solve. The business problem to evaluate in placement of a VM is loosley these two things: Does increasing the performance of the application provide the overall answers required faster? Are there things you can do to your application that will allow it to better take advantage of cloud capabilities…

Please review Azure Monitor, the built-in monitoring service in Azure. Azure Monitor provides metrics and logs for many services in Azure including VMs. A quick overview : Product documentation: Get started with Azure Monitor Note: As of today (Apr ‘17) Cloud Services metrics are served using an older telemetry pipeline but that is the process of being migrated to Azure Monitor pipeline. You will soon be able to consume Cloud Service metrics via Azure Monitor, the same way you can for Azure VMs, Web Apps or Azure SQL DBs.

Azure Backup introduces a reinforcement expansion to the Azure VM specialist that is running on the VM. This expansion backs up the whole VM. You can back up explicit records and organizers on the Azure VM by running the MARS operator.
 
 
Make sure you have VMs in Availability set. Before selecting a VM collect below inputs either from Application or from Performance monitoring team 1. Maximum IOPS required. 2. Maximum size of DB in next 2 years at least. Based on these inputs select the VM size and required storage tier – Standard or Premium. For high performance, you can perform disk stripping if you require more than 5000 IOPS. Also you can configure Backup to URL.

Could I connect to a Linux Azure VM using SSH and private IP through Putty?

 
Absolutely. You can check your VM’s public IP address on the Azure Portal and SSH into it with the SSH client of your choice. A private IP allows Azure VMs to communicate with other resources in a virtual network or an on-premises network through a VPN or ExpressRoute. So you can SSH into an Azure VM using the private IP from the same virtual network or via VPN / ExpressRoute.

azure fundamentals az900 exam preparation pro
 
The region prices are related to pricing conditions in particular region. In details it is about tenancy of physical area, prices of the hardware from vendors, the cost of man-hours in a particular region for IT specialists and other Azure datacenter workers, and so on. Unfortunately, I can’t find any reference for that information, I’m talking here personally as the person who works with Azure every day and have a contact with Microsoft teams.

Testimonial: Passed my AZ-900 on the second attempt!

Wow, what a difference a couple of days and a different set of questions makes. I took the exam Monday and fell just short of passing (659), and I retook it today and scored 850! The questions on the first attempt were definitely harder, and I could tell from the first few questions I was going to have a rough time.

Today was totally different and I felt like I was getting all the “gimme” questions first and was able to coast through most questions confidently. I flagged exactly half the questions for review and at the end I had 20 minutes leftover after I was done reviewing. Total day and night difference between the two attempts.

For preparation I used:

– Microsoft Learn

– A Cloud Guru AZ-900 course + practice exam

– Tutorials Dojo practice exam

– and of course, John Savill’s YT channel

I bought the TD practice exams because of all the suggestions here, and I can attest they were well worth the price. This morning before the exam I went through all the TD section-based exams and took each one until I scored 90% on every section. I don’t always condone preparing for the exam on the day of but it was certainly a nice confidence booster to help me get mentally prepared.

Testimonial: Passed my AZ-900 on the first attempt!

Pleased to have passed this first time with a score of 775!

For any looking to sit this, I’ve had around 3 years of experience proving 2nd line technical support for an Azure environment. I used the following to prep for this exam:

Scotty Duffy’s Udemy Course – this was a bit of a waste of time and money in my eyes, nowhere near detailed enough. There are some reviews from people saying they passed the exam using this course alone with no experience using Azure but I really do not believe that.

Tim Warner’s YouTube series – this was great bearing in mind it was free. Way more worth the time than Scott’s, I wish I’d have started here.

Tutorials Dojo Practise Exams – I’d only recommend using these exams to test your knowledge and build some confidence, the questions in the exam were more difficult but the format and nature of these give you a good idea of what to expect.

Hope this advice helps some of you – onto the AZ-104!

Testimonial: AZ900 – Passed – some notes

Azure Fundamentals AZ900 Exam Prep on Udemy – 50-% OFF

Just passed with a 970. I used a combination of:

1. ITProTV – good training overviews but useless practice tests. Utterly not even close to the exam.

2. Udemy and Whizlabs – VERY close to what is on the exam, highly recommend this.

3. TutorialsDojo – this was the closest to the actual test – if you can pass these tests you can pass the exam.

ANKI for terms and basic rules.

I studied way too much – make sure you know what each service does and how offerings differ

1. Availability Zones vs. Sets

2. Datacenters vs. Regions vs. Geographies

3. Where Compliance and Security information is done

4. Exactly what Azure Advisor can do, so you know what it can’t do.

5. The Difference between the DB offerings.

6. The difference between SaaS, IaaS and PaaS – really know this, multiple questions on it.

7. When you are charged for data transfer vs. when you are not.

Use the following flowchart to select a candidate compute service.

Decision tree for Azure compute services

Definitions:

  • “Lift and shift” is a strategy for migrating a workload to the cloud without redesigning the application or making code changes. Also called rehosting. For more information, see Azure migration center.
  • Cloud optimized is a strategy for migrating to the cloud by refactoring an application to take advantage of cloud-native features and capabilities.
  • App Service. A managed service for hosting web apps, mobile app back ends, RESTful APIs, or automated business processes.
  • Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). A managed Kubernetes service for running containerized applications.
  • Batch. A managed service for running large-scale parallel and high-performance computing (HPC) applications
  • Container Instances. The fastest and simplest way to run a container in Azure, without having to provision any virtual machines and without having to adopt a higher-level service.
  • Functions. A managed FaaS service.
  • Service Fabric. A distributed systems platform that can run in many environments, including Azure or on premises.
  • Virtual machines. Deploy and manage VMs inside an Azure virtual network.
  • Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) lets you provision individual VMs along with the associated networking and storage components. Then you deploy whatever software and applications you want onto those VMs. This model is the closest to a traditional on-premises environment, except that Microsoft manages the infrastructure. You still manage the individual VMs.
  • Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provides a managed hosting environment, where you can deploy your application without needing to manage VMs or networking resources. Azure App Service is a PaaS service.
  • Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) goes even further in removing the need to worry about the hosting environment. In a FaaS model, you simply deploy your code and the service automatically runs it. Azure Functions are a FaaS service.

There is a spectrum from IaaS to pure PaaS. For example, Azure VMs can autoscale by using virtual machine scale sets. This automatic scaling capability isn’t strictly PaaS, but it’s the type of management feature found in PaaS services.

Azure Data Store:

Use the following flowchart to select a candidate data store.

Data store decision tree

Which of the following choices isn’t a cloud computing category: NAAS, PAAS, SAAS, IAAS, DAAS?
– Networking-as-a-Service (NaaS)

– NaaS isn’t a cloud computing category.

    by /u/ButterflyWide7220 (Microsoft Azure) on September 24, 2022 at 5:59 pm

    Hello everyone, Glad to be here. We are in the mix of enabling MFA for privileged accounts and all our users. I am looking for gotchas and experiences. Here is our plan: 1.) Deploy the MS Authenticator app to our managed mobile devices (iOS and Android) via Intune 2.) Enable Numbers Matching for the Authenticator to improve security - we also want to use the NPS extension in order to have MFA for our VPN solution. Hopefully the numbers matching will not cause issues there. Not sure if we should disable SMS as a MFA option from the start since it is considered insecure. 3.) Inform our users that MFA will be enabled - maybe use the Azure MFA campaign?! 4.) Security defaults are off and User-based MFA will not be used. 5.) Enable MFA via Conditional Access using Conditional Access templates Grey area: -Not sure if we need to plan or adjust sign-in frequency policies or session lifetime. Maybe for non-managed devices or devices from a non-trusted location. Any key points that I forgot? Thanks guys and gals. Cheers, Mike submitted by /u/ButterflyWide7220 [link] [comments]

    Is it possible to pause or turn off a Site-to-Site VPN tunnel in Azure? Assume you have two Azure VNET’s that use the same IP Address Ranges (e.g. a Prod and a DR VNET) and both are connected to an on-prem AD via separate Site-to-Site VPN tunnels. This would cause a problem if both tunnels were running at the same time because of overlapping IP Addresses, right?

  • Coursera or Microsoft training for DP-203 Data Engineering
    by /u/DataNerdling (Microsoft Azure) on September 24, 2022 at 2:31 pm

    I'm a long time SQL Developer with nearly 20 years experience. Classic SQL Server SSIS SSAS background. I'd like to refresh my skills and want to do the DP-203 cert. I've played with my own personal project in Azure SQL and ADF but would like a broader understanding of Azure and data. Two routes I've found, the Microsoft and Coursera. Any you recommend? Pricing isn't so much an issue. https://www.coursera.org/professional-certificates/microsoft-azure-dp-203-data-engineering or https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/users/sandramarin/collections/8yxi3g0oenxqg?WT.mc_id=Azure_BoM-wwl thank you! submitted by /u/DataNerdling [link] [comments]

  • Azure Managed Images and Shared VM Image Versions
    by /u/whatsupwez (Microsoft Azure) on September 24, 2022 at 12:55 pm

    I've got a question on the costs of Managed Images and Shared VM Image versions, and I've struggled to find the info online. If I create a shared VM Image Version, inside a Shared Compute Gallery from an existing Managed Image, I have the option to create this with "Shallow Replication". Microsoft says that Shallow Replicated images are much quicker to provision, as the images do not get copied (and so retain the existing limitations of Managed Images IE only 600 VM deployments). I'm making the assumption here that a Shallow replicated VM Image Version is just a pointer to the existing Managed Image. However, you can delete the existing Managed Image (and the new VM Image Version continues to work). So it could be that behind the scenes there is a lock on the image and metadata is just updated. My question is about costs though, if I create a Shared VM Image Version with Shallow Replication and I retain the Managed Image, am I just charged for the storage of this single image (that now has two pointers to it? Or would I be charged twice (like I would expect to if Fully replicated and so copied)? I'm just working out whether retaining the existing managed image would have a cost consideration in this scenario (there isn't good support for custom gallery images in Terraform at the moment). More info here: Share VM images in a compute gallery - Azure Virtual Machines | Microsoft Learn Terraform issue due to API limitations for custom gallery images: Support for Azure Compute Gallery when deploying Virtual Machines · Issue #15255 · hashicorp/terraform-provider-azurerm (github.com) Any thoughts? submitted by /u/whatsupwez [link] [comments]

  • Which certification is better for career progression?
    by /u/iamindeedrobot (Microsoft Azure) on September 24, 2022 at 7:36 am

    Hi, To start with, I am an experienced programmer, but am not experienced in Microsoft Azure except recently using it for hosting a web app. Fortunately, I have been offered to study and take a Microsoft Azure AI Fundamentals exam soon sponsored by my local IT service provider in my country. However, I am not sure if it is worth studying for the sake of having a certification alone just prove that I have the knowledge and ability to learn new technologies. As a result, I am contemplanting on changing of a course, which is Microsoft Azure Fundamentals. I think that taking it would be a lot more useful compared to studying a specific domain on Microsoft Azure for entry level. If you could choose for an entry level certification, would you choose the Fundamentals one or a specific domain area? Thank you. Your response is much appreciated. submitted by /u/iamindeedrobot [link] [comments]

  • Question about AVD pricing and usability for single user
    by /u/No_Lie_6107 (Microsoft Azure) on September 24, 2022 at 4:03 am

    Hi, Is it possible to use an azure virtual desktop and install quickbooks on it? Please forgive me for asking these stupid questions, I don't know anything. I was just looking at the pricing, and it's really only something I use like 1 hour a month, if that. It appears to me, that it COULD be significantly cheaper to do this than use a windows 365 cloud pc, if it is possible. Any input? Is what I'm saying possible? Are there any fees I'm not seeing? TLDR: Trying to get rid of a 12 year old PC I do my books on, because I like to keep it separate from my personal gaming computer, but I'm not trying to spend 31 dollars a month on windows 365 cloud pc to do so. I don't really need any help setting it up, I can waste hours stumbling through that process. I'm just curious if it's a good use case. ​ Thanks! submitted by /u/No_Lie_6107 [link] [comments]

  • Network Watcher - Connection Monitor - how to deal with NAT'd IP addresses?
    by /u/Augustiner_Fan (Microsoft Azure) on September 23, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    Hello, I have a customer who wants me to set up a network watcher connection monitor. He has the agent installed on an on-premise machine which has a physical IP address of 10.10.x.x. However he is performing NAT along the way to the S2S tunnel, and from Azure we can only reach this machine via IP Address 192.168.x.x When I set up the test groups and select the agent on the on-premise machine, I do not get a drop-down for the 192.168.x.x IP, just for 10.10.x.x. How can I set this up? Thanks for the help! submitted by /u/Augustiner_Fan [link] [comments]

1

Know what instance types can be launched from which types of AMIs, and which instance types require an HVM AMI
AWS HVM AMI

2

Understand bastion hosts, and which subnet one might live on. Bastion hosts are instances that sit within your public subnet and are typically accessed using SSH or RDP. Once remote connectivity has been established with the bastion host, it then acts as a ‘jump’ server, allowing you to use SSH or RDP to login to other instances (within private subnets) deeper within your network. When properly configured through the use of security groups and Network ACLs, the bastion essentially acts as a bridge to your private instances via the Internet.”
Bastion Hosts

3

Know the difference between Directory Service’s AD Connector and Simple AD. Use Simple AD if you need an inexpensive Active Directory–compatible service with the common directory features. AD Connector lets you simply connect your existing on-premises Active Directory to AWS.
AD Connector and Simple AD

4

Know how to enable cross-account access with IAM: To delegate permission to access a resource, you create an IAM role that has two policies attached. The permissions policy grants the user of the role the needed permissions to carry out the desired tasks on the resource. The trust policy specifies which trusted accounts are allowed to grant its users permissions to assume the role. The trust policy on the role in the trusting account is one-half of the permissions. The other half is a permissions policy attached to the user in the trusted account that allows that user to switch to, or assume the role.

7

Know which services allow you to retain full admin privileges of the underlying EC2 instances
EC2 Full admin privilege

8

Know When Elastic IPs are free or not: If you associate additional EIPs with that instance, you will be charged for each additional EIP associated with that instance per hour on a pro rata basis. Additional EIPs are only available in Amazon VPC. To ensure efficient use of Elastic IP addresses, we impose a small hourly charge when these IP addresses are not associated with a running instance or when they are associated with a stopped instance or unattached network interface.
When are AWS Elastic IPs Free or not?

9

Know what are the four high level categories of information Trusted Advisor supplies.
#AWS Trusted advisor

10

Know how to troubleshoot a connection time out error when trying to connect to an instance in your VPC. You need a security group rule that allows inbound traffic from your public IP address on the proper port, you need a route that sends all traffic destined outside the VPC (0.0.0.0/0) to the Internet gateway for the VPC, the network ACLs must allow inbound and outbound traffic from your public IP address on the proper port, etc.

We know you like your hobbies and especially coding, We do too, but you should find time to build the skills that’ll drive your career into Six Figures. Cloud skills and certifications can be just the thing you need to make the move into cloud or to level up and advance your career. 85% of hiring managers say cloud certifications make a candidate more attractive. Start your cloud journey with these excellent books below:

Know how you would go about making changes to an Auto Scaling group, fully understanding what you can and can’t change. “You can only specify one launch configuration for an Auto Scaling group at a time, and you can’t modify a launch configuration after you’ve created it. Therefore, if you want to change the launch configuration for your Auto Scaling group, you must create a launch configuration and then update your Auto Scaling group with the new launch configuration. When you change the launch configuration for your Auto Scaling group, any new instances are launched using the new configuration parameters, but existing instances are not affected.
#AWS Make Change to Auto Scaling group

When you change the launch configuration for your Auto Scaling group, any new instances are launched using the new configuration parameters, but existing instances are not affected.
#AWS Make Change to Auto Scaling group

15

Know which field you use to run a script upon launching your instance.
#AWS User data script

16

Know how DynamoDB (durable, and you can pay for strong consistency), Elasticache (great for speed, not so durable), and S3 (eventual consistency results in lower latency) compare to each other in terms of durability and low latency.
#AWS DynamoDB consistency

17

Know the difference between bucket policies, IAM policies, and ACLs for use with S3, and examples of when you would use each. “With IAM policies, companies can grant IAM users fine-grained control to their Amazon S3 bucket or objects while also retaining full control over everything the users do. With bucket policies, companies can define rules which apply broadly across all requests to their Amazon S3 resources, such as granting write privileges to a subset of Amazon S3 resources. Customers can also restrict access based on an aspect of the request, such as HTTP referrer and IP address. With ACLs, customers can grant specific permissions (i.e. READ, WRITE, FULL_CONTROL) to specific users for an individual bucket or object.
#AWS Difference between bucket policies

18

Know when and how you can encrypt snapshots.
#AWS EBS Encryption

19

Understand how you can use ELB cross-zone load balancing to ensure even distribution of traffic to EC2 instances in multiple AZs registered with a load balancer.
#AWS ELB cross-zone load balancing

20

How would you allow users to log into the AWS console using active directory integration. Here is a link to some good reference material.
#AWS og into the AWS console using active directory integration

21

Spot instances are good for cost optimization, even if it seems you might need to fall back to On-Demand instances if you wind up getting kicked off them and the timeline grows tighter. The primary (but still not only) factor seems to be whether you can gracefully handle instances that die on you–which is pretty much how you should always design everything, anyway!
#AWS Spot instances

22

The term “use case” is not the same as “function” or “capability”. A use case is something that your app/system will need to accomplish, not just behaviour that you will get from that service. In particular, a use case doesn’t require that the service be a 100% turnkey solution for that situation, just that the service plays a valuable role in enabling it.
#AWS use case

23

There might be extra, unnecessary information in some of the questions (red herrings), so try not to get thrown off by them. Understand what services can and can’t do, but don’t ignore “obvious”-but-still-correct answers in favour of super-tricky ones.
#AWS Exam Answers: Distractors

24

If you don’t know what they’re trying to ask, in a question, just move on and come back to it later (by using the helpful “mark this question” feature in the exam tool). You could easily spend way more time than you should on a single confusing question if you don’t triage and move on.
#AWS Exa: Skip Questions that are vague and come back to them later

25

Some exam questions required you to understand features and use cases of: VPC peering, cross-account access, DirectConnect, snapshotting EBS RAID arrays, DynamoDB, spot instances, Glacier, AWS/user security responsibilities, etc.

38

The Udemy practice test interface is good that it pinpoints your weak areas, so what I did was to re-watch all the videos that I got the wrong answers. Since I was able to gauge my exam readiness, I decided to reschedule my exam for 2 more weeks, to help me focus on completing the practice tests.
#AWS Udemy

39

Use AWS Cheatsheets – I also found the cheatsheets provided by Tutorials Dojo very helpful. In my opinion, it is better than Jayendrapatil Patil’s blog since it contains more updated information that complements your review notes.
#AWS Cheat Sheet

40

Watch this exam readiness 3hr video, it very recent webinar this provides what is expected in the exam.
#AWS Exam Prep Video

41

Start off watching Ryan’s videos. Try and completely focus on the hands on. Take your time to understand what you are trying to learn and achieve in those LAB Sessions.
#AWS Exam Prep Video

42

Do not rush into completing the videos. Take your time and hone the basics. Focus and spend a lot of time for the back bone of AWS infrastructure – Compute/EC2 section, Storage (S3/EBS/EFS), Networking (Route 53/Load Balancers), RDS, VPC, Route 3. These sections are vast, with lot of concepts to go over and have loads to learn. Trust me you will need to thoroughly understand each one of them to ensure you pass the certification comfortably.
#AWS Exam Prep Video

43

Make sure you go through resources section and also AWS documentation for each components. Go over FAQs. If you have a question, please post it in the community. Trust me, each answer here helps you understand more about AWS.
#AWS Faqs

44

Like any other product/service, each AWS offering has a different flavor. I will take an example of EC2 (Spot/Reserved/Dedicated/On Demand etc.). Make sure you understand what they are, what are the pros/cons of each of these flavors. Applies for all other offerings too.
#AWS Services

45

Ensure to attend all quizzes after each section. Please do not treat these quizzes as your practice exams. These quizzes are designed to mostly test your knowledge on the section you just finished. The exam itself is designed to test you with scenarios and questions, where in you will need to recall and apply your knowledge of different AWS technologies/services you learn over multiple lectures.
#AWS Services

46

I, personally, do not recommend to attempt a practice exam or simulator exam until you have done all of the above. It was a little overwhelming for me. I had thoroughly gone over the videos. And understood the concepts pretty well, but once I opened exam simulator I felt the questions were pretty difficult. I also had a feeling that videos do not cover lot of topics. But later I realized, given the vastness of AWS Services and offerings it is really difficult to encompass all these services and their details in the course content. The fact that these services keep changing so often, does not help
#AWS Services

47

Go back and make a note of all topics, that you felt were unfamiliar for you. Go through the resources section and fiund links to AWS documentation. After going over them, you shoud gain at least 5-10% more knowledge on AWS. Have expectations from the online courses as a way to get thorough understanding of basics and strong foundations for your AWS knowledge. But once you are done with videos. Make sure you spend a lot of time on AWS documentation and FAQs. There are many many topics/sub topics which may not be covered in the course and you would need to know, atleast their basic functionalities, to do well in the exam.
#AWS Services

48

Once you start taking practice exams, it may seem really difficult at the beginning. So, please do not panic if you find the questions complicated or difficult. IMO they are designed or put in a way to sound complicated but they are not. Be calm and read questions very carefully. In my observation, many questions have lot of information which sometimes is not relevant to the solution you are expected to provide. Read the question slowly and read it again until you understand what is expected out of it.
#AWS Services

49

With each practice exam you will come across topics that you may need to scale your knowledge on or learn them from scratch.
#AWS Services

50

With each test and the subsequent revision, you will surely feel more confident.
There are 130 mins for questions. 2 mins for each question which is plenty of time.
At least take 8-10 practice tests. The ones on udemy/tutorialdojo are really good. If you are a acloudguru member. The exam simulator is really good.
Manage your time well. Keep patience. I saw someone mention in one of the discussions that do not under estimate the mental focus/strength needed to sit through 130 mins solving these questions. And it is really true.
Do not give away or waste any of those precious 130 mins. While answering flag/mark questions you think you are not completely sure. My advice is, even if you finish early, spend your time reviewing the answers. I could review 40 of my answers at the end of test. And I at least rectified 3 of them (which is 4-5% of total score, I think)
So in short – Put a lot of focus on making your foundations strong. Make sure you go through AWS Documentation and FAQs. Try and envision how all of the AWS components can fit together and provide an optimal solution. Keep calm.
This video gives outline about exam, must watch before or after Ryan’s course. #AWS Services

What is the AWS Certified Solution Architect Associate Exam?

This exam validates an examinee’s ability to effectively demonstrate knowledge of how to architect and deploy secure and robust applications on AWS technologies. It validates an examinee’s ability to:

  • Define a solution using architectural design principles based on customer requirements.
  • Multiple-response: Has two correct responses out of five options.

There are two types of questions on the examination:

  • Multiple-choice: Has one correct response and three incorrect responses (distractors).
  • Provide implementation guidance based on best practices to the organization throughout the lifecycle of the project.

Select one or more responses that best complete the statement or answer the question. Distractors, or incorrect answers, are response options that an examinee with incomplete knowledge or skill would likely choose. However, they are generally plausible responses that fit in the content area defined by the test objective. Unanswered questions are scored as incorrect; there is no penalty for guessing.

To succeed with the real exam, do not memorize the answers below. It is very important that you understand why a question is right or wrong and the concepts behind it by carefully reading the reference documents in the answers.

3

Category: AI and machine learning
Build and connect intelligent bots that interact with your users using text/SMS, Skype, Teams, Slack, Office 365 mail, Twitter, and other popular services.
References:
[AWS]:Alexa Skills Kit (enables a developer to build skills, also called conversational applications, on the Amazon Alexa artificial intelligence assistant.)
[Azure]:Microsoft Bot Framework (building enterprise-grade conversational AI experiences.)
[Google]:Google Assistant Actions ( developer platform that lets you create software to extend the functionality of the Google Assistant, Google’s virtual personal assistant,)

Tags: #AlexaSkillsKit, #MicrosoftBotFramework, #GoogleAssistant
Differences: One major advantage Google gets over Alexa is that Google Assistant is available to almost all Android devices.

Category: AI and machine learning
Description:API capable of converting speech to text, understanding intent, and converting text back to speech for natural responsiveness.
References:
[AWS]:Amazon Lex (building conversational interfaces into any application using voice and text.)
[Azure]:Azure Speech Services(unification of speech-to-text, text-to-speech, and speech translation into a single Azure subscription)
[Google]:Google APi.ai, AI Hub (Hosted repo of plug-and-play AI component), AI building blocks(for developers to add sight, language, conversation, and structured data to their applications.), AI Platform(code-based data science development environment, lets ML developers and data scientists quickly take projects from ideation to deployment.), DialogFlow (Google-owned developer of human–computer interaction technologies based on natural language conversations. ), TensorFlow(Open Source Machine Learning platform)

Tags: #AmazonLex, #CogintiveServices, #AzureSpeech, #Api.ai, #DialogFlow, #Tensorflow
Differences: api.ai provides us with such a platform which is easy to learn and comprehensive to develop conversation actions. It is a good example of the simplistic approach to solving complex man to machine communication problem using natural language processing in proximity to machine learning. Api.ai supports context based conversations now, which reduces the overhead of handling user context in session parameters. On the other hand in Lex this has to be handled in session. Also, api.ai can be used for both voice and text based conversations (assistant actions can be easily created using api.ai).

Category: Big data and analytics: Data warehouse
Description: Apache Spark-based analytics platform. Managed Hadoop service. Data orchestration, ETL, Analytics and visualization
References:
[AWS]:EMR, Data Pipeline, Kinesis Stream, Kinesis Firehose, Glue, QuickSight, Athena, CloudSearch
[Azure]:Azure Databricks, Data Catalog Cortana Intelligence, HDInsight, Power BI, Azure Datafactory, Azure Search, Azure Data Lake Anlytics, Stream Analytics, Azure Machine Learning
[Google]:Cloud DataProc, Machine Learning, Cloud Datalab
Tags:#EMR, #DataPipeline, #Kinesis, #Cortana, AzureDatafactory, #AzureDataAnlytics, #CloudDataProc, #MachineLearning, #CloudDatalab
Differences: All three providers offer similar building blocks; data processing, data orchestration, streaming analytics, machine learning and visualisations. AWS certainly has all the bases covered with a solid set of products that will meet most needs. Azure offers a comprehensive and impressive suite of managed analytical products. They support open source big data solutions alongside new serverless analytical products such as Data Lake. Google provide their own twist to cloud analytics with their range of services. With Dataproc and Dataflow, Google have a strong core to their proposition. Tensorflow has been getting a lot of attention recently and there will be many who will be keen to see Machine Learning come out of preview.

8

Category: Virtual servers
Description:Virtual servers allow users to deploy, manage, and maintain OS and server software. Instance types provide combinations of CPU/RAM. Users pay for what they use with the flexibility to change sizes.
Batch: Run large-scale parallel and high-performance computing applications efficiently in the cloud.
References:
[AWS]:Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Bracket(Explore and experiment with quantum computing), Amazon Ec2 M6g Instances (Achieve up to 40% better price performance), Amazon Ec2 Inf1 instancs (Deliver cost-effective ML inference), AWS Graviton2 Processors (Optimize price performance for cloud workloads), AWS Batch, AWS AutoScaling, VMware Cloud on AWS, AWS Local Zones (Run low latency applications at the edge), AWS Wavelength (Deliver ultra-low latency applications for 5G devices), AWS Nitro Enclaves (Further protect highly sensitive data), AWS Outposts (Run AWS infrastructure and services on-premises)
[Azure]:Azure Virtual Machines, Azure Batch, Virtual Machine Scale Sets, Azure VMware by CloudSimple
[Google]:Compute Engine, Preemptible Virtual Machines, Managed instance groups (MIGs), Google Cloud VMware Solution by CloudSimple
Tags: #AWSEC2, #AWSBatch, #AWSAutoscaling, #AzureVirtualMachine, #AzureBatch, #VirtualMachineScaleSets, #AzureVMWare, #ComputeEngine, #MIGS, #VMWare
Differences: There is very little to choose between the 3 providers when it comes to virtual servers. Amazon has some impressive high end kit, on the face of it this sound like it would make AWS a clear winner. However, if your only option is to choose the biggest box available you will need to make sure you have very deep pockets, and perhaps your money may be better spent re-architecting your apps for horizontal scale.Azure’s remains very strong in the PaaS space and now has a IaaS that can genuinely compete with AWS
Google offers a simple and very capable set of services that are easy to understand. However, with availability in only 5 regions it does not have the coverage of the other players.

9

Category: Containers and container orchestrators
Description: A container is a standard unit of software that packages up code and all its dependencies so the application runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another.
Container orchestration is all about managing the lifecycles of containers, especially in large, dynamic environments.
References:
[AWS]:EC2 Container Service (ECS), Fargate(Run containers without anaging servers or clusters), EC2 Container Registry(managed AWS Docker registry service that is secure, scalable, and reliable.), Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS: runs the Kubernetes management infrastructure across multiple AWS Availability Zones), App Mesh( application-level networking to make it easy for your services to communicate with each other across multiple types of compute infrastructure)
[Azure]:Azure Container Instances, Azure Container Registry, Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Service Fabric Mesh
[Google]:Google Container Engine, Container Registry, Kubernetes Engine
Tags:#ECS, #Fargate, #EKS, #AppMesh, #ContainerEngine, #ContainerRegistry, #AKS
Differences: Google Container Engine, AWS Container Services, and Azure Container Instances can be used to run docker containers. Google offers a simple and very capable set of services that are easy to understand. However, with availability in only 5 regions it does not have the coverage of the other players.

10

Category: Serverless
Description: Integrate systems and run backend processes in response to events or schedules without provisioning or managing servers.
References:
[AWS]:AWS Lambda
[Azure]:Azure Functions
[Google]:Google Cloud Functions
Tags:#AWSLAmbda, #AzureFunctions, #GoogleCloudFunctions
Differences: Both AWS Lambda and Microsoft Azure Functions and Google Cloud Functions offer dynamic, configurable triggers that you can use to invoke your functions on their platforms. AWS Lambda, Azure and Google Cloud Functions support Node.js, Python, and C#. The beauty of serverless development is that, with minor changes, the code you write for one service should be portable to another with little effort – simply modify some interfaces, handle any input/output transforms, and an AWS Lambda Node.JS function is indistinguishable from a Microsoft Azure Node.js Function. AWS Lambda provides further support for Python and Java, while Azure Functions provides support for F# and PHP. AWS Lambda is built from the AMI, which runs on Linux, while Microsoft Azure Functions run in a Windows environment. AWS Lambda uses the AWS Machine architecture to reduce the scope of containerization, letting you spin up and tear down individual pieces of functionality in your application at will.

11

Category: Relational databases
Description: Managed relational database service where resiliency, scale, and maintenance are primarily handled by the platform.
References:
[AWS]:AWS RDS(MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database built for the cloud,), Aurora(MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database built for the cloud)
[Azure]:SQL Database, Azure Database for MySQL, Azure Database for PostgreSQL
[Google]:Cloud SQL
Tags: #AWSRDS, #AWSAUrora, #AzureSQlDatabase, #AzureDatabaseforMySQL, #GoogleCloudSQL
Differences: All three providers boast impressive relational database offering. RDS supports an impressive range of managed relational stores while Azure SQL Database is probably the most advanced managed relational database available today. Azure also has the best out-of-the-box support for cross-region geo-replication across its database offerings.

12

Category: NoSQL, Document Databases
Description:A globally distributed, multi-model database that natively supports multiple data models: key-value, documents, graphs, and columnar.
References:
[AWS]:DynamoDB (key-value and document database that delivers single-digit millisecond performance at any scale.), SimpleDB ( a simple web services interface to create and store multiple data sets, query your data easily, and return the results.), Managed Cassandra Services(MCS)
[Azure]:Table Storage, DocumentDB, Azure Cosmos DB
[Google]:Cloud Datastore (handles sharding and replication in order to provide you with a highly available and consistent database. )
Tags:#AWSDynamoDB, #SimpleDB, #TableSTorage, #DocumentDB, AzureCosmosDB, #GoogleCloudDataStore
Differences:DynamoDB and Cloud Datastore are based on the document store database model and are therefore similar in nature to open-source solutions MongoDB and CouchDB. In other words, each database is fundamentally a key-value store. With more workloads moving to the cloud the need for NoSQL databases will become ever more important, and again all providers have a good range of options to satisfy most performance/cost requirements. Of all the NoSQL products on offer it’s hard not to be impressed by DocumentDB; Azure also has the best out-of-the-box support for cross-region geo-replication across its database offerings.

Cloud skills and certifications can be just the thing you need to make the move into cloud or to level up and advance your career. 85% of hiring managers say cloud certifications make a candidate more attractive. Start your cloud journey with these excellent books below:

Category:Caching
Description:An in-memory–based, distributed caching service that provides a high-performance store typically used to offload non transactional work from a database.
References:
[AWS]:AWS ElastiCache (works as an in-memory data store and cache to support the most demanding applications requiring sub-millisecond response times.)
[Azure]:Azure Cache for Redis (based on the popular software Redis. It is typically used as a cache to improve the performance and scalability of systems that rely heavily on backend data-stores.)
[Google]:Memcache (In-memory key-value store, originally intended for caching)
Tags:#Redis, #Memcached
<Differences: They all support horizontal scaling via sharding.They all improve the performance of web applications by allowing you to retrive information from fast, in-memory caches, instead of relying on slower disk-based databases.”, “Differences”: “ElastiCache supports Memcached and Redis. Memcached Cloud provides various data persistence options as well as remote backups for disaster recovery purposes. Redis offers persistence to disk, Memcache does not. This can be very helpful if you cache lots of data, since you remove the slowness around having a fully cold cache. Redis also offers several extra data structures that Memcache doesn’t— Lists, Sets, Sorted Sets, etc. Memcache only has Key/Value pairs. Memcache is multi-threaded. Redis is single-threaded and event driven. Redis is very fast, but it’ll never be multi-threaded. At hight scale, you can squeeze more connections and transactions out of Memcache. Memcache tends to be more memory efficient. This can make a big difference around the magnitude of 10s of millions or 100s of millions of keys. ElastiCache supports Memcached and Redis.

Category: Security, identity, and access
Description:Authentication and authorization: Allows users to securely control access to services and resources while offering data security and protection. Create and manage users and groups, and use permissions to allow and deny access to resources.
References:
[AWS]:Identity and Access Management (IAM), AWS Organizations, Multi-Factor Authentication, AWS Directory Service, Cognito(provides solutions to control access to backend resources from your app), Amazon Detective (Investigate potential security issues), AWS IAM Access Analyzer(Easily analyze resource accessibility)
[Azure]:Azure Active Directory, Azure Subscription Management + Azure RBAC, Multi-Factor Authentication, Azure Active Directory Domain Services, Azure Active Directory B2C, Azure Policy, Management Groups
[Google]:Cloud Identity, Identity Platform, Cloud IAM, Policy Intelligence, Cloud Resource Manager, Cloud Identity-Aware Proxy, Context-aware accessManaged Service for Microsoft Active Directory, Security key enforcement, Titan Security Key
Tags: #IAM, #AWSIAM, #AzureIAM, #GoogleIAM, #Multi-factorAuthentication
Differences: One unique thing about AWS IAM is that accounts created in the organization (not through federation) can only be used within that organization. This contrasts with Google and Microsoft. On the good side, every organization is self-contained. On the bad side, users can end up with multiple sets of credentials they need to manage to access different organizations. The second unique element is that every user can have a non-interactive account by creating and using access keys, an interactive account by enabling console access, or both. (Side note: To use the CLI, you need to have access keys generated.)

15

Category: Object Storage and Content delivery
Description:Object storage service, for use cases including cloud applications, content distribution, backup, archiving, disaster recovery, and big data analytics.
References:
[AWS]:Simple Storage Services (S3), Import/Export(used to move large amounts of data into and out of the Amazon Web Services public cloud using portable storage devices for transport.), Snowball( petabyte-scale data transport solution that uses devices designed to be secure to transfer large amounts of data into and out of the AWS Cloud), CloudFront( content delivery network (CDN) is massively scaled and globally distributed), Elastic Block Store (EBS: high performance block storage service), Elastic File System(shared, elastic file storage system that grows and shrinks as you add and remove files.), S3 Infrequent Access (IA: is for data that is accessed less frequently, but requires rapid access when needed. ), S3 Glacier( long-term storage of data that is infrequently accessed and for which retrieval latency times of 3 to 5 hours are acceptable.), AWS Backup( makes it easy to centralize and automate the back up of data across AWS services in the cloud as well as on-premises using the AWS Storage Gateway.), Storage Gateway(hybrid cloud storage service that gives you on-premises access to virtually unlimited cloud storage), AWS Import/Export Disk(accelerates moving large amounts of data into and out of AWS using portable storage devices for transport)
[Azure]:
Azure Blob storage, File Storage, Data Lake Store, Azure Backup, Azure managed disks, Azure Files, Azure Storage cool tier, Azure Storage archive access tier, Azure Backup, StorSimple, Import/Export
[Google]:
Cloud Storage, GlusterFS, CloudCDN
Tags:#S3, #AzureBlobStorage, #CloudStorage
Differences:
Source: All providers have good object storage options and so storage alone is unlikely to be a deciding factor when choosing a cloud provider. The exception perhaps is for hybrid scenarios, in this case Azure and AWS clearly win. AWS and Google’s support for automatic versioning is a great feature that is currently missing from Azure; however Microsoft’s fully managed Data Lake Store offers an additional option that will appeal to organisations who are looking to run large scale analytical workloads. If you are prepared to wait 4 hours for your data and you have considerable amounts of the stuff then AWS Glacier storage might be a good option. If you use the common programming patterns for atomic updates and consistency, such as etags and the if-match family of headers, then you should be aware that AWS does not support them, though Google and Azure do. Azure also supports blob leasing, which can be used to provide a distributed lock.

16

Category:Internet of things (IoT)
Description:A cloud gateway for managing bidirectional communication with billions of IoT devices, securely and at scale. Deploy cloud intelligence directly on IoT devices to run in on-premises scenarios.
References:
[AWS]:AWS IoT (Internet of Things), AWS Greengrass, Kinesis Firehose, Kinesis Streams, AWS IoT Things Graph

[Google]:Google Cloud IoT Core, Firebase, Brillo, Weave, CLoud Pub/SUb, Stream Analysis, Big Query, Big Query Streaming API
Tags:#IoT, #InternetOfThings, #Firebase
Differences:AWS and Azure have a more coherent message with their products clearly integrated into their respective platforms, whereas Google Firebase feels like a distinctly separate product.

17

Category:Web Applications
Description:Managed hosting platform providing easy to use services for deploying and scaling web applications and services. API Gateway is a a turnkey solution for publishing APIs to external and internal consumers. Cloudfront is a global content delivery network that delivers audio, video, applications, images, and other files.
