A company must ensure consistent behavior of an application running on Amazon Linux in its corporate ecosystem before moving into AWS. The company has an existing automated server build system using VMware. The goal is to demonstrate the functionality of the application and its prerequisites on the new target operating system. The DevOps Engineer needs to use the existing corporate server pipeline and virtualization software to create a server image. The server image will be tested on- premises to resemble the build on Amazon EC2 as closely as possible.
How can this be accomplished?
An application runs on Amazon EC2 instances behind an Application Load Balancer. Amazon RDS MySOL is used on the backend. The instances run in an Auto
Scaling group across multiple Availability Zones. The Application Load Balancer health check ensures the web servers are operating and able to make read/write
SQL connections. Amazon Route 53 provides DNS functionality with a record pointing to the Application Load Balancer. A new policy requires a geographically isolated disaster recovery site with an RTO of 4
ours and an RPO of 15 minutes.
Which disaster recovery strategy will require the LEAST amount of changes to the application stack?
A company wants to use Amazon DynamoDB for maintaining metadata on its forums. See the sample data set in the image below.
A business has an application that consists of five independent AWS Lambda functions. The DevOps Engineer has built a CI/CD pipeline using AWS CodePipeline and AWS CodeBuild that builds, tests, packages, and deploys each Lambda function in sequence. The pipeline uses an Amazon CloudWatch Events rule to ensure the pipeline execution starts as quickly as possible after a change is made to the application source code.
After working with the pipeline for a few months, the DevOps Engineer has noticed the pipeline takes too long to complete.
What should the DevOps Engineer implement to BEST improve the speed of the pipeline?
A company is reviewing its IAM policies. One policy written by the DevOps Engineer has been flagged as too permissive. The policy is used by an AWS Lambda function that issues a stop command to Amazon EC2 instances tagged with Environment: Nonproduction over the weekend. The current policy is:
