You have several virtual machines (VMs) that run in Azure. You also have a single System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager (SCCM) primary site on-premises.
You have the following requirements:
All VMs must run on the same virtual network.
Network traffic must be minimized between the on-premises datacenter and Azure.
The solution minimize complexity.
You need to use SCCM to collect inventory and deploy software to Azure VMs.
What should you do first?
A. Configure client push for the Azure virtual network.
B. Enable and configure Operations Insights in Azure.
C. Install a cloud distribution point on an Azure VM.
D. Install a secondary site underneath the primary site onto an Azure VM.
Explanation: Cloud-based distribution Point, a Configuration Manager Site System Role in the Cloud
Much of the Configuration Manager topology is made up of distribution points, they are very helpful in many situations where bandwidth and geographical separation are the facts of life, but also hard to manage if you have hundreds or even thousands of them.
This feature started with the vision that it makes perfect sense to have big distribution points in the Windows Azure cloud where one should not worry about things like (but not limited to) size, performance, reliability, security, access from all around the world, hardware/software update issues etc.
Note: Content management in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager provides the tools for you to manage content files for applications, packages, software updates, and operating system deployment. Configuration Manager uses distribution points to store files that are required for software to run on client computers. These distribution points function as distribution centers for the content files and let users download and run the software.
Clients must have access to at least one distribution point from which they can download the files.

Q38. - (Topic 6)
You are designing an Azure application that stores data.
You have the following requirements:
The data storage system must support storing more than 500 GB of data. Data retrieval must be possible from a large number of parallel threads. Threads must not block each other.
You need to recommend an approach for storing data.
What should you recommend?
A. Azure Notification Hubs
B. A single SQL database in Azure
C. Azure Queue storage
D. Azure Table storage
Explanation: * Azure Table Storage can be useful for applications that must store large amounts of nonrelational data, and need additional structure for that data. Tables offer key-based access to unschematized data at a low cost for applications with simplified data-access patterns. While Azure Table Storage stores structured data without schemas, it does not provide any way to represent relationships between the data.
* As a solution architect/developer, consider using Azure Table Storage when:
/ Your application stores and retrieves large data sets and does not have complex
relationships that require server-side joins, secondary indexes, or complex server-side
/ You need to achieve a high level of scaling without having to manually shard your dataset.

The users have the following responsibilities:
You need to assign the appropriate level of privileges to each of the administrators by using the principle of least privilege.
What should you do? To answer, select the appropriate target objects and permission levels in the answer area.
Q40. - (Topic 6)
You are the administrator for a company named Contoso, Ltd.
Contoso also has an Azure subscription and uses many on-premises Active Directory products as roles in Windows Server including the following:
Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS)
Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS)
Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS)
Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS)
Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS).
Contoso must use the directory management services available in Azure Active Directory.
You need to provide information to Contoso on the similarities and differences between Azure Active Directory and the Windows Server Active Directory family of services.
Which feature does Azure Active Directory and on-premises Active Directory both support?
A. Using the GraphAPI to query the directory
B. Issuing user certificates
C. Supporting single sign-on (SSO)
D. Querying the directory with LDAP
Explanation: AD FS supports Web single-sign-on (SSO) technologies, and so does Azure
If you want single sign on we usually suggest using ADFS if you’re a Windows shop. Going
forward though, Azure Active Directory is another alternative you can use.

Q41. - (Topic 6)
You are designing an Azure application. The application includes services hosted in different geographic locations. The service locations may change.
You must minimize the cost of communication between services.
You need to recommend an approach for data transmission between your application and Azure services. The solution must minimize administrative effort.
What should you recommend?
A. Azure Table storage
B. Service Bus
C. Service Management API
D. Azure Queue storage
Explanation: The cost of ACS transactions is insignificant when performing messaging operations against Service Bus queues. Service Bus acquires one ACS token per a single instance of the messaging factory object. The token is then reused until it expires, after about 20 minutes. Therefore, the volume of messaging operations in Service Bus is not directly proportional to the amount of ACS transactions required to support these operations.

Q44. - (Topic 6)
You are designing an Azure application that processes graphical image files. The graphical Images are processed in batches by remote applications that run on multiple servers.
You have the following requirements:
. The application must remain operational during batch-processing operations.
. Users must be able to roll back each image to a previous version.
You need to ensure that each remote application has exclusive access to an image while the application processes the image. Which type of storage should you use to store the images?
A. Table service
B. Queue service
C. Blob service
D. A single Azure VHD that is attached to the web role
Explanation: * Blob Leases allow you to claim ownership to a Blob. Once you have the lease you can then update the Blob or delete the Blob without worrying about another process changing it underneath you. When a Blob is leased, other processes can still read it, but any attempt to update it will fail. You can update Blobs without taking a lease first, but you do run the chance of another process also attempting to modify it at the same time.
* You can opt to use either optimistic or pessimistic concurrency models to manage access to blobs and containers in the blob service.
