A. M1 machine types are for memory intensive workloads. GPUs and extra SSD will not help with in-memory database. Pre-emtible compute instances should not be used for hosting databases.

I would choose option A, due to the requirement for "minimizing latency and maximizing throughput". At the following link it says "Peering traffic (traffic flowing between peered networks) has the same latency, throughput, and availability as private traffic in the same network." https://cloud.google.com/vpc/docs/vpc-peering#key_properties The VPN option would limit throughput to 3Gbps, and the other options are just stupid.

A should be the answer. https://cloud.google.com/network-connectivity/docs/vpn/concepts/topologies#2-peers D. is considered a "full mesh" and isn't required for 99.99% SLA. Also D is riding the lines of adding Bandwidth. With A you already get 3 GBPS and the company only uses 200 kbps. https://cloud.google.com/network-connectivity/docs/vpn/concepts/topologies#ensuring-ha-peer

I would go with option A https://cloud.google.com/network-connectivity/docs/vpn/concepts/topologies#1-peer-2-addresses The best option would actually be this one, but it's not listed as an option: https://cloud.google.com/network-connectivity/docs/vpn/concepts/topologies#2-peers Option D might be overkill (although the "100% availability" requirement might point to that one), and it would not be the most cost-optimized option. In any case, option D is not recommended or described in the docs, and these exams generally want you to just repeat whatever they put in their docs.

Professional Cloud Architect - New Case Studies

Update regarding GCP Professional Cloud Architect certificate case studies:

↣ Two new master case studies were added: Helicopter Racing League & EHR Healthcare
↣ Two master case studies were updated: TerramEarth & Mountkirk Games
↣ One master case study was removed

These master case studies are provided in long text paragraphs and high technical level and make it difficult to understand and remember even after reading hundreds of times, while you lack in time during the exam to look at them.

Further information regarding the new case studies:

Get ready to prepare like you’ve never prepared before

As we often say at ExamTopics, work smarter not harder. You are about to see a study guide that took hours of hard collection work, expert preparation, and constant feedback. That’s why we know this exam prep will help you get that high-score on your journey to certification. Our study guides are the real thing. Our study guides are so accurate, we have to fight the droves of clone test prep sites that actually steal our material. Don’t worry though, we believe by offering our material free and upholding good values, ExamTopics will always have a strong community and a coveted place in the certification world.

Your journey to pass the Professional Cloud Architect

Perhaps this is your first step toward the certification, or perhaps you are coming back for another round. We hope that you feel this exam challenges you, teaches you, and prepares you to pass the Professional Cloud Architect. If this is your first study guide, take a moment to relax. This could be the first step to a new high-paying job and an AMAZING career. If you’ve been around the block a few times, consider taking a moment and answering some questions from newer techies. After all, it’s our great community that illuminates the material and helps build something great.

What should you know before studying the Professional Cloud Architect?

Every exam and certification has different requirements. If this is a serious venture, make sure to read the prerequisites before preceding. Nothing is worse than wasting months studying for an exam you can’t take or passing an exam that won’t help you get a certification! Our easy search tools are designed to help you find relevant information as well and search for a variety of different exams.

What is the Professional Cloud Architect focused on?

The Professional Cloud Architect or as it’s also known, the Professional Cloud Architect on Google Cloud Platform, like all tests, there is a bit of freedom on Google's part to exam an array of subjects. That means knowing the majority of Professional Cloud Architect content is required because they test randomly on the many subjects available. Be aware too that experience requirements often exist because they’ve observed the average person and what is required. You can always push past that to succeed with the Professional Cloud Architect but it may take some extra work.

Rome wasn’t built in a day

Remember that incredible things take time. And just like ancient monuments took years of effort, certification is not easy. It is not always quick either. But it is worth it! Our toolset allows you to engage with an incredible community of expert tech workers and add to the conversation at ExamTopics. If you have questions, don’t forget to leave a comment and reach out. It’s here that you’ll get personalized help unheard of on test prep sites, without the outrageous fees.

Always check the foundation

Some certifications have requirements going back to older exams, while others use two or more tests to help someone pass. If you find the Professional Cloud Architect is over your head, that’s ok. It might make sense to see if a lower level exam will give you some clarity.

If offered, read the exam objectives

The exam objectives are different for every single exam and usually provided by the certification provider. These normally tell the test taker what subjects are relevant, what they need to know, and why the exam seeks to cover these topics. It’s important to find them out for your specific exam. This can be found on nearly every vendor website and greatly informs the way you’ll study! Don’t worry though, we have taken those objectives into account and seek to create a testing experience comparable to an actual exam.

Remember that certification is quite rewarding

It can be hard to keep your focus on studying but remember that the best jobs in the world are only a few tests away. Whether you enter Cyber Security or do entry level tech work, certification is a clear, learnable, and rewarding path to careers that pay a LOT of money. They offer better work-life balance and you’ll get in with some of the major leaders in the business world. So don’t give up, it is worth it, and all this work will pay off!

Using ExamTopics

Practicing for an exam like the Professional Cloud Architect can be a full-time job. In fact some exams are actually paid for by work because they are so intensive. Certification is not simple and takes immense work. It takes time, practice, and the right focus. We here at ExamTopics understand that. We understand that because we have been in this industry for years and working in space full of less savory test prep sources. These terrible prep sources pushed our team to make a positive change in the Exam space. We got sick and tired of seeing potential exam candidates get price-gouged over CCNA braindumps. We couldn’t handle knowing that hard workers from across the world, seeking new skills and a better life, get tricked into paying absurd amounts for low-quality exam materials. Often material that was out of date or at best, available online through community sites without hurting the wallet. And it had to stop. You are ready to jump in!

That’s it, the next page will be full of practice questions. Challenging material. And best of all, a chance to hone your skills. It’s ok if you feel in over your head. We all did at some point, this next step is about pushing through that fear and getting ready to tackle something as challenging as the Professional Cloud Architect. If you get stuck, reach out. If you see others stuck, help them. And as always, like we love to say, work smarter NOT harder!
