Question #: 81
Topic #: 12
[All DP-300 Questions]

You have a single availability set that contains two SQL Server on Azure Virtual Machines instances.

The instances were deployed by using an Azure Marketplace SQL Server 2019 Enterprise image that has the latest cumulative updates applied. The instances are configured as the nodes of a failover cluster instance (FCI) named FCI1.

You need to ensure that client applications can connect to FCI1. The solution must meet the following requirements:

* Provide an availability SLA

* Minimize costs.

What should you create?

I'm not sure about the load balancer options. Aren't those usually more for web traffic? Since this is a SQL Server FCI, I think the DNN resource is the best fit. It's designed specifically for this use case, and it should be more reliable than a generic load balancer.

Hold on, what about option D? An Azure Standard Load Balancer could also provide the availability SLA we need, and it might be more straightforward to set up than the DNN resource. But you're right, the DNN could be more cost-effective.

I agree, the DNN resource seems like the way to go. It provides a highly available client access point for the FCI1 cluster, and since it's a native Azure feature, it should be more cost-effective than setting up a load balancer.

Hmm, this is a tricky one. We need to ensure client applications can connect to the FCI1 cluster, while also providing an availability SLA and minimizing costs. I'm leaning towards option C - a distributed network name (DNN) resource.

So, we're all in agreement that option C) a distributed network name (DNN) resource is the way to go?

I don't think a VNN resource would provide the necessary functionality for connecting to FCI1 in a failover cluster.

What about option A) a virtual network name (VNN) resource? Could that also work?
