An architect is tasked with designing a new VMware software-defined data center (SDDC) solution for an online retail customer who has a primary and secondary data center as well as 10 distribution hubs.
The customer has provided the following business requirements to help inform the design:
The solution must support the running of up to 1,000 concurrent virtual machines across the primary and secondary data center.
The solution must support the running of up to 20 concurrent virtual machines in each distribution hub.
The solution must support the separation of management and lines-of-business application virtual machines.
All management components (including directory services, backup, automation, operations and logging) must be deployed to the primary data center.
All virtual infrastructure components must have redundancy of N+1.
All sites are connected to each other using a wide area network that has multiple diversely routed links.
The solution should support a monthly uptime target of 99.9%.
The recovery time objective (RTO) for the solution must be four hours.
The recovery point objective (RPO) for the solution must be 24 hours.
Given the information from the customer, which assumption should the architect include in the design?
An architect is designing a new VMware solution for a customer that has a number of different resource profiles.
The following are the business requirements for the design:
The solution must support virtual machines with the following storage profiles:
- Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) archive
The solution must support migration of virtual machine disks between storage profiles.
The WORM archive data must be located at an isolated secure site.
The backup storage array must only be connected to a backup media server.
All data should be recoverable from backup.
Which design decision should the architect make to meet the business requirements?
An architect is preparing a design for a company planning digital transformation. During the requirements gathering workshop, the following requirements (REQ) and constraints (CON) are identified:
REQ01 The platform must host different types of workloads including applications that must be compliant with internal security standard.
REQ02 The infrastructure must initially run 100 virtual machines.
REQ03 Ten of the virtual machines must be compliant with internal security standard.
REQ04 The internal security standard specifies logical network separation for in-scope applications.
CON01 The customer has already purchased the licenses as part of another project.
CON02 The customer has five physical servers that must be reused.
Additionally, based on resource requirements, four physical servers will be enough to run all workloads. Which recommendation should the architect make to meet requirements while minimizing project costs?
