Now that you have answered the sample questions, check how many of them are correct. Remember, the passing percentage is 70% for you to get certified for the Azure fundamentals AZ-900 exam.

Here are the correct answers:

  1.  c
    Explanation: High availability keeps the service up and running for long periods of time, with little downtime, depending on the service in question.
  2.  b
    Explanation: Management Groups facilitate the hierarchical ordering of Azure resources into collections, at a level of scope above subscriptions. Distinct governance conditions can be applied to each management group, with Azure Policy and Azure RBACs, to manage Azure subscriptions effectively. The resources and subscriptions assigned to a management group automatically inherit the conditions applied to the management group.
  3. a
    Explanation: Blobs. Azure Blob storage is Microsoft’s object storage solution for the cloud. Blob storage is optimized for storing massive amounts of unstructured data, such as text or binary data.
  4. b
    Explanation: JSON: Resource Manager templates are JSON files that define the resources you need to deploy for your solution. You can use the template to easily re-create multiple versions of your infrastructure, such as staging and production
  5. c
    Explanation: Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) can require two or more elements for full authentication.
  6. c
    Explanation: Role-Based Access (RBAC) lets you grant users only the rights they need to perform their jobs.
  7. a
    Explanation: Service Level Agreements. The SLA defines performance targets for an Azure product or service.
  8. c
    Explanation: Public Preview means that an Azure feature is available to all Azure customers for evaluation purposes.
  9. a
    Explanation: Shared responsibility model is the correct answer. Under the shared responsibility model, management of the resource is shared between the cloud provider and the end-user. The cloud provider is responsible for the cloud services infrastructure and the end-user is responsible for the service being configured and managed correctly.
  10. b
    Explanation: Platform as a Service (PaaS) is the best choice here because the PaaS services handle the IT management tasks for you, so you can focus on writing code.

    I found your question 9 is confusingly worded. It says they do not want to worry about the “software”, I think it might better to say “operating system”, or maybe “server management”. Software, at least to me, implies SaaS
