Answer: Option 4: PrimaryReference
Question 5: You have a business-critical two-tier web app currently deployed in two AZ in a single regioin, using Elastic Load Balancing and Auto Scaling. The app depends on synchronous replication (very low latency connectivity) at the database layer. The applicaiton needs to remain fully available even if one application AZs goes off-line, and Auto Scaling cannot launch new instances in the remaining AZs. How can the current architecture be enhanced to ensure this?
Option 1: Deploy in three Availability Zones, with Auto Scaling minimum set to handle 33 percent peack load per zone.
Option 2: Deploy in three Availability Zones, with Auto Scaling minimum set to handle 50 percent peak load per zone.
Option 3: Deploy in two regions using weighted Round Robin (WRR), with Auto Scaling minimums set for 50 percent peak load per Region.
Option 4: Deploy in two regions using Weighted Roud Robin (WRR), with Auto Scaling minimums set for 100 percent peak laod per region.
Answer: Option 2: Deploy in three Availability Zones, with Auto Scaling minimum set to handle 50 percent peak load per zone.Reference
Question 6: How can an instance be copied to another region?
Option 1: By creating an AMI and copy it to another region
Option 2: There is no way to copy an instance to another region
Option 3: First instance’s root volume is detached. Then a new instance is create in another region. Finally detached volume can be attached to new instance as root device.
Option 4: By stopping instance and using copy option
Answer: Option 1: By creating an AMI and copy it to another regionReference
Question 7: Can you create IAM security credentials for exsiting users?
Option 1: Yes, existing users can have security credentials associated with their account.
Option 2: No, security credentials are created within GROUPS, and then users care associated to GROUPS at a later time.

Option 3: Has a Network Access Control List (NACL) permitted outbound traffic to 0.0.0.0/0
Option 4: Has the Public Subnet option selected in its configuration.
Answer: Option 2: Has at least one route in its associated routing table that uses an internet gateway (IGW).Reference

Option 1: A template to map network resources for Amazon Web Services
Option 2: A template resource creation for Amazon Web Services.
Option 3: The ability to setup Auto Scaling for Amazon EC2 Instance
Option 4: None of these
Answer: Option 2: A template resource creation for Amazon Web Services.Reference
Question 10: Can we attach an EBS volume to more than one EC2 instance at the same time?
Option 1: Only EC2-optimized EBS volumes.
Option 2: No
Option 3: Yes
Option 4: Only in read mode
Answer: Option 2: NoReference
