AWS 认证是对其在 AWS 平台上设计、部署和管理应用程序所需的技能和技术知识的一种认可。获得证书有助于证明您使用 AWS 的丰富经验和可信度，同时还能提升您所在的组织熟练使用基于 AWS 云服务应用的整体水平。
目前亚马逊推出了Solutions Architect,Developer和SysOps Administrator三个方向的认证。每个方向又分为Associate Level(助理级)，Professional Level（专家级）和Master Level（大师级）。当然目前只有Solutions Architect开放了Professional Level,其他层级会逐步开放中。
最近在打算备考AWS的Solutions Architect的Associate Level。关于这个考试AWS出了一个考试样题。下载链接：http://awstrainingandcertification.s3.amazonaws.com/production/AWS_certified_solutions_architect_associate_blueprint.pdf

Your web application front end consists of multiple EC2 instances behind an Elastic Load Balancer. You
configured ELB to perform health checks on these EC2 instances. If an instance fails to pass health
checks, which statement will be true?
A.The instance is replaced automatically by the ELB.
B.The instance gets terminated automatically by the ELB.
C.The ELB stops sending traffic to the instance that failed its health check.
D.The instance gets quarantined by the ELB for root cause analysis.
Elastic Load Balancing ensures that only healthy Amazon EC2 instances receive traffic by detecting unhealthy instances and rerouting traffic across the remaining healthy instances.
You are building a system to distribute confidential training videos to employees. Using CloudFront, what
method could be used to serve content that is stored in S3, but not publically accessible from S3
A.Create an Origin Access Identity (OAI) for CloudFront and grant access to the objects in your S3
bucket to that OAI.
B.Add the CloudFront account security group “amazon-cf/amazon-cf-sg” to the appropriate S3 bucket
C.Create an Identity and Access Management (IAM) User for CloudFront and grant access to the
objects in your S3 bucket to that IAM User.
D.Create a S3 bucket policy that lists the CloudFront distribution ID as the Principal and the target
bucket as the Amazon Resource Name (ARN).
Which of the following will occur when an EC2 instance in a VPC (Virtual Private Cloud) with an

A.The Elastic IP will be dissociated from the instance
B.All data on instance-store devices will be lost
C.All data on EBS (Elastic Block Store) devices will be lost
D.The ENI (Elastic Network Interface) is detached
E.The underlying host for the instance is changed
In the basic monitoring package for EC2, Amazon CloudWatch provides the following metrics:

B.operating system visible metrics such as memory utilization
C.database visible metrics such as number of connections
D.hypervisor visible metrics such as CPU utilization
Which is an operational process performed by AWS for data security?
A.AES-256 encryption of data stored on any shared storage device
B.Decommissioning of storage devices using industry-standard practices
C.Background virus scans of EBS volumes and EBS snapshots
D.Replication of data across multiple AWS Regions
E.Secure wiping of EBS data when an EBS volume is unmounted

To protect S3 data from both accidental deletion and accidental overwriting, you should:
A.enable S3 versioning on the bucket
B.access S3 data using only signed URLs
C.disable S3 delete using an IAM bucket policy
D.enable S3 Reduced Redundancy Storage
E.enable Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) protected access
Versioning-enabled buckets enable you to recover objects from accidental deletion or overwrite.
