administrator mistakenly terminated several production EC2 instances.
Which of the following strategies will help prevent a similar situation in the future?
The administrator still must be able to:
launch, start stop, and terminate development resources.
launch and start production instances.
You have an application running on an EC2 instance which will allow users to download files from a private S3
bucket using a pre-signed URL. Before generating the URL, the application should verify the existence of the
file in S3.
How should the application use AWS credentials to access the S3 bucket securely?
You are designing a data leak prevention solution for your VPC environment. You want your VPC Instances to
be able to access software depots and distributions on the Internet for product updates. The depots and
distributions are accessible via third party CDNs by their URLs.
You want to explicitly deny any other outbound connections from your VPC instances to hosts on the internet.
Which of the following options would you consider?
You are running a successful multitier web application on AWS and your marketing department has asked you
to add a reporting tier to the application. The reporting tier will aggregate and publish status reports every 30

Please select the answer that will allow you to successfully implement the reporting tier with as little impact as
possible to your database.
A company is running a batch analysis every hour on their main transactional DB, running on an RDS MySQL
instance, to populate their central Data Warehouse running on Redshift. During the execution of the batch, their
transactional applications are very slow. When the batch completes they need to update the top management
dashboard with the new data. The dashboard is produced by another system running on-premises that is
currently started when a manually-sent email notifies that an update is required. The on-premises system
cannot be modified because is managed by another team.

was updated with a new launch configuration that refers to this new AMI. During the deployment, you received
complaints from users that the website was responding with errors. All instances passed the ELB health
