Following a recent acquisition, the architect learns that both companies use vSphere on-premise and will need to combine the data centers into one. The acquired company's licenses will not be renewed for cost-savings related to the acquisition. All consumed vSphere licenses must have active support to support line-of-business operations. The merged environment must maintain 25% spare capacity. The architect has a small budget remaining unallocated for hardware.
The architect has calculated that the current vSphere environment can absorb the acquired company's virtual machines but the cluster will run at 90% memory utilization and at 50% CPU utilization.
Which design decision can the architect make to incorporate the new company's virtual machines into the combined vSphere environment?
An architect is considering placement of virtual machines within an existing VMware software-defined data center (SDDC).
During the discovery phase, the following information is documented:
Which two recommendations should the architect make for placement of the virtual machines to meet resource profile requirements? (Choose two.)
An architect decides to separate virtual desktops and application servers into separate vSphere clusters to meet security and management requirements.
What are two implications of this design decision? (Choose two.)
An architect is preparing a design for a customer. Based on requirements, the architect recommends an HCI- based infrastructure with all-flash architecture. During the assessment, it is confirmed that the network throughput generated by virtual machines does not exceed 150 Mb/s.
What is the minimum number and type of network adapters in each server that the architect can recommend to ensure requirements are met and there is no single point of failure?
A customer defines a requirement to minimize the vMotion migration time during a maintenance period. The servers being used are equipped with eight 1 GbE network adapters.
Per the defined logical network configuration, there are two network adapters each used for:
Virtual machine traffic
Which design decision should the architect make to meet the customer requirement?
