An organization is planning to adopt pre integrated systems to deploy compute, network, storage, and management functions as a single engineered solution.
Which approach should the organization adopt?
Pre-integrated systems are vendor-provided solutions that combine compute, network, storage, and management functions as a single engineered solution. This approach is also known as a converged infrastructure or a hyper-converged infrastructure. The vendor provides pre-configured, pre-tested hardware and software components that work together seamlessly. The pre-integrated system reduces the complexity of building and deploying IT infrastructure, while also improving performance, scalability, and reliability. This approach is different from a DIY (do-it-yourself) approach, where an organization builds its infrastructure from individual components, and a DCaaS (Data Center as a Service) approach, where the organization outsources its entire data center to a third-party provider. Reference: Section 1.7 Converged Infrastructure, page 62.
An Ethernet switch has eight ports and all ports must be operational for 24 hours; from Monday through Friday. However, a failure of Port 5 occurs as follows:
Tuesday = 6 AM to 7 AM Thursday = 5 PM to 9 PM Friday = 8 AM to 9 AM
What is the MTBF of Port 5?
Which VMware product has pre-defined workflows that helps to automate and coordinate the service delivery and operational functions in a storage infrastructure?
What is a benefit of differential backup over incremental backup?
Differential backups are more efficient than incremental backups because, instead of backing up only the changes made since the last backup, they back up all of the data that has changed since the last full backup. This means that, unlike incremental backups, the size of the differential backup is not limited and can expand to contain more data than an incremental backup. Additionally, differential backups are faster to restore since they only need to read the differential backup and last full backup, rather than all of the incremental backups.
A backup administrator has defined a backup policy The policy requires full backups to be performed at 9 PM every Sunday and incremental backups performed at 9 PM the remaining days If files were accidentally deleted Thursday morning, how many backup copies are required to restore the files?
In your scenario, a full backup was performed on Sunday and incremental backups were performed on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. If files were accidentally deleted Thursday morning, you would need two backup copies to restore the files: the full backup from Sunday and the incremental backup from Wednesday. This is because the incremental backup from Wednesday would contain all the changes made since Sunday’s full backup.
Match the object-based storage device (OSD) features with their descriptions.
What type of technology is used in SSD devices to provide non-volatile data storage?
Refer to the Exhibit:
Identify the following FC Frame fields:
an FC frame consists of five parts: start of frame (SOF), frame header, data field, cyclic redundancy check (CRC), and end of frame (EOF). The SOF and EOF act as delimiters. The frame header is 24 bytes long and contains addressing information for the frame.
In a data center environment, what is an advantage of using parity-based RAID protection over mirroring?
Parity-based RAID protection uses fewer physical drives than mirroring to provide the same level of data protection. It does this by using error correction codes to detect and correct errors in the data. This allows for a much more efficient use of storage capacity, as it only requires the same amount of storage capacity as the actual data, rather than requiring twice the storage capacity as with mirroring. Additionally, parity RAID systems have the advantage of being able to recover from drive failures without having to wait for the data to be rewritten to the remaining drives, as is the case with mirroring.
What is an accurate statement about the Do-It-Yourself approach for building modern Infrastructure?
What is an accurate description about Dell EMC VxBlock system?
Dell EMC VxBlock system is a converged infrastructure (CI) solution that combines compute, virtualization, network, storage into an engineered solution.
VxBlock is designed to reduce complexity, improve agility, and provide a predictable IT infrastructure while allowing organizations to quickly adapt to changing business needs. The components of the system are integrated and tested to provide an end-to-end infrastructure that can quickly scale up or down to meet the demands of the data center. Additionally, VxBlock allows organizations to access industry-leading software and tools to automate and simplify operations.
Which network performance attribute is achieved when using flow control in FOP?
Flow control in FOP (File-Oriented Protocol) is a network performance attribute that ensures that packets are delivered in the same order they were sent. This is achieved by assigning each packet a sequence number, and then having the receiver send an acknowledgment back to the sender that it has received the packet and is ready for the next one. This helps to ensure that packets are not lost, and that they arrive in the same order they were sent.
What information is available in a capacity planning report for storage infrastructure?
Why is it important for organizations to store protect and manage their data?
Organizations must store, protect, and manage their data in order to comply with the various laws and regulations governing the use and storage of data, such as GDPR and CCPA. By properly managing their data, organizations can ensure that they are compliant with these regulations and avoid potential penalties. Additionally, by storing, protecting, and managing their data, organizations can ensure that their data is secure and protected from malicious actors.
it is important for organizations to store, protect and manage their data because data is a valuable asset that can drive business growth, innovation, and competitive advantage. Data can also be subject to various risks such as loss, corruption, theft, unauthorized access, and compliance violations.
One of the reasons why it is important for organizations to store, protect and manage their data is to meet the requirements of legal and data governance regulations1. This means that organizations should comply with the laws and policies that govern how data should be collected, stored, processed, shared, and disposed of. Data governance also ensures that data quality, security, privacy, and ethics are maintained throughout the data lifecycle.
Which storage management function ensures that the services and service levels are delivered per SLAs?
What kind of ML explicitly requires splitting the data into training and testing datasets before running an algorithm against that data?
Depending on the type of ML approach and the phase of the buildout, labels or tags might be another essential component to data collection. In supervised learning approaches, clearly tagged data and direct feedback ensures that the algorithm can self-learn
