QUESTION 151
Your company plans to migrate to Azure. The company has several departments. All the Azure resources used
by each department will be managed by a department administrator.
What are two possible techniques to segment Azure for the departments? Each correct answer presents a
complete solution.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
A. multiple subscriptions
B. multiple Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) directories
C. multiple regions
D. multiple resource groups
Correct Answer: AD
Section: Understand Azure Pricing and Support
Explanation
Explanation/Reference:

Explanation:
An Azure subscription is a container for Azure resources. It is also a boundary for permissions to resources
and for billing. You are charged monthly for all resources in a subscription. A single Azure tenant (Azure Active
Directory) can contain multiple Azure subscriptions.
A resource group is a container that holds related resources for an Azure solution. The resource group can
include all the resources for the solution, or only those resources that you want to manage as a group.
To enable each department administrator to manage the Azure resources used by that department, you will
need to create a separate subscription per department. You can then assign each department administrator as
an administrator for the subscription to enable them to manage all resources in that subscription.

Correct Answer: A
Section: Understand Azure Pricing and Support
Explanation
Explanation/Reference:

Explanation:
The Modern Lifecycle Policy covers products and services that are serviced and supported continuously. For
products governed by the Modern Lifecycle Policy, Microsoft will provide a minimum of 12 months’ notification
prior to ending support if no successor product or service is offered—excluding free services or preview
releases.

Correct Answer:


Section: Understand Azure Pricing and Support
Explanation
Explanation/Reference:

Explanation:
Box 1: No
You need to be an administrator of the billing account that has the subscription to be able to transfer the
subscription. This could be a Billing Administrator or Global Administrator. A subscription owner can manage
all resources and permissions within the subscription but cannot transfer ownership of the subscription.
Box 2: Yes
You can convert a free trial subscription to Pay-As-You-Go. This is common practice for people who wish to
continue using the Azure services when the free trial period expires.
Box 3: Yes
You can remove the spending limit, but you can’t increase or decrease it.
The spending limit in Azure prevents spending over your credit amount. All new customers who sign up for an
Azure free account or subscription types that include credits over multiple months have the spending limit
turned on by default. The spending limit is equal to the amount of credit and it can’t be changed. For example, if
you signed up for Azure free account, your spending limit is $200 and you can’t change it to $500. However,
you can remove the spending limit. So, you either have no limit, or you have a limit equal to the amount of
credit.

Correct Answer:


Section: Understand Azure Pricing and Support
Explanation
Explanation/Reference:

Explanation:
Box 1: Yes
A reservation is where you commit to pay for a resource (for example a virtual machine) for one or three years.
This gives you a discounted price on the resource for the reservation period.
Box 2: No
There are other factors that influence the cost of a virtual machine such as the virtual hard disks attached to the
virtual machine. You could have multiple virtual machines with the same ‘size’ (B2S in this case) but with
different virtual hard disk configurations.
Box 3: Yes
When a virtual machine is stopped (deallocated), the virtual machine is unloaded/dismounted from the physical
server in Azure. In this state, you are not charged for the virtual machine itself. However, you are still charged
for the storage costs of the virtual hard disks attached to the virtual machine.
If the virtual machine is stopped but not deallocated (this happens if you shut down the virtual machine from the
operating system of the virtual machine), the virtual machine is still mounted on the physical server in Azure
and you are charged for the virtual machine itself as well as the storage costs. To ensure that a virtual machine
is ‘stopped (deallocated)’, you need to stop the virtual machine in the Azure portal.

How should you calculate the monthly uptime percentage? To answer, select the appropriate options in the
answer area.
NOTE: Each correct selection is worth one point.
Hot Area:


Correct Answer:


Section: Understand Azure Pricing and Support
Explanation
Explanation/Reference:

Explanation:
“Maximum Available Minutes” is the total accumulated minutes during a billing month .
“Downtime” is the total accumulated minutes that are part of Maximum Available Minutes where a system is
unavailable.
“Monthly Uptime Percentage” for a service is calculated as Maximum Available Minutes less Downtime
divided by Maximum Available Minutes x 100.
Monthly Uptime Percentage is represented by the following formula:
Monthly Uptime % = (Maximum Available Minutes-Downtime) / Maximum Available Minutes x 100.

QUESTION 166
What is guaranteed in an Azure Service Level Agreement (SLA) for virtual machines?
A. uptime
B. feature availability
C. bandwidth
D. performance
Correct Answer: A
Section: Understand Azure Pricing and Support
Explanation
Explanation/Reference:

Explanation:
The SLA for virtual machines guarantees ‘uptime’. The amount of uptime guaranteed depends on factors such
as whether the VMs are in an availability set or availability zone if there is more than one VM, the distribution of
the VMs if there is more than one or the disk type if it is a single VM.
The SLA for Virtual Machines states:
For all Virtual Machines that have two or more instances deployed across two or more Availability Zones in
the same Azure region, we guarantee you will have Virtual Machine Connectivity to at least one instance at
least 99.99% of the time.
For all Virtual Machines that have two or more instances deployed in the same Availability Set or in the
same Dedicated Host Group, we guarantee you will have Virtual Machine Connectivity to at least one
instance at least 99.95% of the time.
For any Single Instance Virtual Machine using Premium SSD or Ultra Disk for all Operating System Disks
and Data Disks, we guarantee you will have Virtual Machine Connectivity of at least 99.9%.
