AWS Certification Exam Practice Questions
- Questions are collected from Internet and the answers are marked as per my knowledge and understanding (which might differ with yours).
- AWS services are updated everyday and both the answers and questions might be outdated soon, so research accordingly.
- AWS exam questions are not updated to keep up the pace with AWS updates, so even if the underlying feature has changed the question might not be updated
- Open to further feedback, discussion and correction.
- A company is running a website on Amazon EC2 instances that are in an Auto Scaling group. When the website traffic increases, additional instances take several minutes to become available because of a long-running user data script that installs software. An AWS engineer must decrease the time that is required for new instances to become available. Which action should the engineer take to meet this requirement?
- Reduce the scaling thresholds so that instances are added before traffic increases.
- Purchase Reserved Instances to cover 100% of the maximum capacity of the Auto Scaling group.
- Update the Auto Scaling group to launch instances that have a storage optimized instance type.
- Use EC2 Image Builder to prepare an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) that has pre-installed software.
