The Customer Labtown has a new vSphere 5 environment with one of their line of business applications recently being virtulized. Labtown requires that their Webserver, Database Server, and Fileserver for their line of business app be created into a vAPP. The VM's should start up in a specific order to insure the application starts correctly after an outage or reboot. Labtown also wants the best performance possible out of each VM. There is three hosts in the cluster each running the same CPU and Memory specifications. each host is running at 60% utilization right now. Labtown doesn't have any budget for more hosts.
Create a logical vAPP design for Labtowns Line of Business Application
- The server must boot in the following order: DB, Fileserver, WebServer
- Each VM must perform the best it can with the current cluster configuration
- Place the three VM's on the vAPP
- Place the boot order boxes ontop of each VM to indicate the VM's boot order
- Place the VM stencil for each VM in the DRS rules section if you wish to apply DRS rules to the design
- As long as VM's are on the vAPP stencil marks will be scored
Answer : A
Customer Information The Customer labtown is looking to purchase a new storage system and has hired you to create a logical design. Labtown requires no single points of failure when it comes to the fabric connecting the storage. Labtown has already decided that the new storage system will be using fibre to re-use as much of the previous hardware as possible to increase ROI. Labotwn would also like a tiered disk system broken into three categories with the database sitting in the fastest tier, the two web servers sitting in the medium tier, and the file server sitting in the slowest tier. Create a logical design for Labtowns new Storage System Requirements - Create a tiered storage system for Labtown - No single points of failure - Insure storage performance SLA's are met with the four line of business VM's Instructions - Place VM's on the bottom of the page and connect them with the connector to the storage LUN they will belong to. - Connect the stroage LUN with the service processor with the connector - Connect the storage processors to the SAN switch - Place HBA's just below the host, as long as they are close to the host points will be scored - Connect HBA's to SAN switches with either the Fixed, MRU, or RR Connector to dictate the PSP Policy for storage on the ESXi host.
Answer : A
You have been tasked with creating a vSphere 6.x data center design for an organization. The organization has produced two 24 port FC switches, and Asymmetrical Active/Active storage array (2 storage Processors with 4 ports each) and 22 ESXi Hosts with 2 dual port HBAs in each. Due to budgetary constraints, the organization cannot purchase anymore equipment. They have provided the following requirements:
- The existing Fibre Channel (FC) Asymmetrical Active/Active Array and FC switches must be used.
- No single point of failure to any datastore.
- Configuration must provide failover and load balancing.
- The customer requires a solution that will accommodate virtual machines with three different I/O load requirements:
- Static web virtual machines
- Critical application virtual machines.
- Object storage for their database virtual machines.
Create a logical design that be applied to each of the ESXi Hosts. The design should meet, but not exceed the customer's requirements and should include:
- All required hardware
- All required resources
Place the required datastore(s) in the storage array(s). Connect the storage processor(s) to the storage array(s). Connect the switch(es) to the storage processor(s) and HBA(s). Connect the ESXi host to the HBA(s) and Path Selection Policies.
Answer : A
You have been tasked with creating a vSphere 6.x data center design for an organization. The organization is looking to virtualize their physical email application. The company has provided a list of requirements that must be included in the design:
- E-mail database is replicated between two servers at a logical level, with no shared disk configurations.
- E-mail databases meet corporate criteria for LUN provisioning, and must reside directly on storage array.
- Operating system disks do not meet corporate requirements for LUN provisioning, and per policy should not share the same VMFS storage location for redundancy reasons.
- Internal users currently point to three Client Access Servers for load balancing.
- External users currently point to three Web Client Access Servers for load balancing.
- Customer requires discrete hardware to provide security between internal servers and externally available servers, as well as between externally available servers, and client connections from offsite.
Create a solution that shows the service dependencies required for virtualizing the email application, including:
- All required storage for Mail DB VM(s) only
- All required network and security connection(s)
- All required virtual machine(s)
- All required user(s)
Place all items in required container(s). Connect VMFS datastore(s) to required virtual machine(s). Place disk(s) over the required storage type(s). Connect firewall(s) to container(s).
Answer : A
You have been tasked with creating a vSphere 6.x data center design for an organization. The organization wants three defined virtual machine performance levels:
- Gold Tier -- High workload VMs
- Silver Tier -- Medium workload VMs
- Bronze Tier -- Development workload VMs
The organization has eight ESXi hosts that can be used in the design. Five of the hosts are older ''medium performance'' hosts, while the last 3 are newer ''high performance'' hosts that provide better resources when compared to the other hosts. The organization has provided a list of requirements that the design must meet:
- Gold Tier virtual machines should run only on high performance servers, unless no high performance servers are available. They should also be allocated 75% of overall available resources regardless of placement.
- Silver Tier virtual machines should run only on medium performance servers, unless no medium performance servers are available. They should also be allocated 25% of overall available resources regardless of placement.
- Bronze Tier virtual machines should run only on medium performance servers. They should also receive a 35% subset of resources from those allocated to the Silver Tier.
Create a logical design that shows resource allocation and cluster policies needed to meet the customer's requirements. The design should include:
- All required server(s)
- All required resource(s)
Place host(s) in the required DRS group(s). Place virtual machines in the appropriate resource pool(s). Connect parent to child resource pool connector(s) where needed. Connect the appropriate affinity connector(s) where needed.
