Note: This question is part of a series of questions that present the same scenario. Each question in the series contains a unique solution that might meet the stated goals. Some question sets might have more than one correct solution, while others might not have a correct solution.
After you answer a question in this sections, you will NOT be able to return to it. As a result, these questions will not appear in the review screen.
You administer an Azure environment that includes six Azure Resource Manager (ARM) virtual machines (VMs) that support development. The development team uses Azure SQL databases and Azure Queues for application storage. All Azure resources are grouped within a single subscription and resource group.
You need to reduce the recurring monthly Azure costs without degrading server performance. You must minimize the administrative effort involved.
What should you do?
Configure an auto-shutdown schedule for each VM by using the Azure Portal.
Update the development environment to use Azure Table storage.
Create an Azure Automation runbook that compresses unused virtual hard disk (VHD) files daily.
Create an Azure PowerShell script that backs up and deprovisions all Azure SQL databases daily.
Answer: A Explanation:
You can set any ARM-based Virtual Machines to auto-shutdown with a few simple clicks. This was a feature originally available only to VMs in Azure DevTest Labs: your self-service sandbox environment in Azure to quickly create Dev/Test environments while minimizing waste and controlling costs. In case you haven#39;t heard it before, the goal for this service is to solve the problems that IT and development teams have been facing: delays in getting a working environment, time-consuming environment configuration, production fidelity issues, and high maintenance cost. It has been helping our customers to quickly get 鈥渞eady to test鈥?with a worry-free self-service environment.

You create a cache for a project by using Azure Redis Cache. You are writing test code that verifies that the cache is available.
You need to ensure that data can be saved to the cache and retrieved from the cache.
How should you complete the relevant code? To answer, select the appropriate option or options in the answer area.

Which of the following are valid differences between page blobs and block blobs? (Choose TWO)
Page blobs are much faster for all operations.
Block blobs allow files to be uploaded and assembled later. Blocks can be resubmitted individually.
Page blobs are good for all sorts of files, like video and images.
Block blobs have a max size of 200 GB. Page blobs can be 1 terabyte.
Question No: 104 – (Topic 5)
You are designing a Windows Azure application that will process images. The maximum size of an image is 10 MB.
The application includes a web role that allows users to upload images and a worker role with multiple instances that processes the images.
The web role communicates with the worker role by using a Windows Azure Queue.
You need to recommend an approach for storing images that minimizes storage transactions.
What should you recommend?
Store images in the queue.
Store images in Windows Azure Blob storage. Store references to the images in the queue.
Store images in local storage on the web role instance. Store references to the images in the queue.
Store images in Windows Azure Drives attached to the worker role instances. Store references to the images in the queue.
Answer: B Explanation:
You can store text and binary data in either of two types of blobs: Block blobs, which are optimized for streaming. Page blobs, which are optimized for random read/write operations and which provide the ability to write to a range of bytes in a blob.
Question No: 105 – (Topic 5)
Which of the following enables hardware independence?
Answer: C Explanation:
Virtualization is a conversion process that translates unique IT hardware into emulated and standardized software-based copies. Through hardware independence, virtual servers can easily be moved to another virtualization host, automatically resolving multiple hardware- software incompatibility issues. As a result, cloning and manipulating virtual IT resources is much easier than duplicating physical hardware.
Question No: 106 HOTSPOT – (Topic 5)
You have an existing server that runs Windows Server. You plan to create a base image of this server. You will use this base image to prepare several virtual servers for future use.
After the base image is prepared, you will capture it by using the Azure management portal.
You must use the System Preparation Tool (Sysprep) to prepare the server so that the base image can be captured.
You need to prepare the server so that the base image can be captured.
What should you do? To answer, configure the appropriate options in the dialog box in the answer area.

After migrating the company’s entire datacenter infrastructure to a private IaaS solution, while at the same time maintaining the current network and server logical configuration, the IT director eliminated 50% of the IT engineering staff. The remaining staff has now shifted focus from a daily server maintenance and upkeep role, to more of a service provisioning, performance, and reporting role. Which of the following was MOST impacted by this migration?
Question No: 108 HOTSPOT – (Topic 5)
You deploy an application that uses a secure data storage solution to Azure. You use Redis Cache and select the Premium tier.
You have the following requirements:
-> Create point-in-time snapshots of the dataset at specific intervals.
-> Limit specific clients from using the cache.
-> Use primary/replica cache pairs.
You need to configure the environment.
Which feature should you implement for each requirement? To answer. select the appropriate options in the answer area.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Question No: 109 – (Topic 5)
You have a website that is hosted on Azure. You connect to the site by using the URI http://www.contoso.com. You plan to publish a new version of the website.
You need to acquire the publishing profile for the website.
Which two actions will achieve the goal? Each correct answer presents a complete solution.
Run the following Windows PowerShell cmdlet:Get-AzurePublishSettingsFile
Run the following Windows PowerShell cmdlet:Get-AzureSubscription
Navigate to the following URI: https://windows.azure.com/download/publishprofile.aspx
Question No: 110 – (Topic 5)
You are designing a plan for migrating Virtual Hard Disks (VHDs) and video files to Windows Azure Storage.
The VHDs must be optimized for random read/write operation.
The video files must be optimized for sequential access.
You need to recommend storage types for storing the VHDs and video files.
Which two storage types should you recommend? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose two.)
Store VHDs in Windows Azure page blob storage.
Store VHDs in Windows Azure block blob storage.
Store video files in Windows Azure page blob storage.
Store video files in Windows Azure block blob storage.
Answer: A,D Explanation:
You can store text and binary data in either of two types of blobs: Block blobs, which are optimized for streaming. Page blobs, which are optimized for random read/write operations and which provide the ability to write to a range of bytes in a blob. After you create or change the server image, you are ready to upload the .vhd file that contains the image data to Windows Azure. There are two opportunities for uploading VHDs to Windows Azure.
When you initially create a VM role, you upload a base VHD to Windows Azure, which is used as a template to create VM role instances.
