B. Which server is handling the most critical data?
C. How much data is stored on each server?
D. What is the throughput of the hard drives?
Answer: B

8. A customer has a requirement for large data storage (approx 1TB) in a high performance server. Due to cost restraints they do not want to implement a SAN at this stage. Which of the following high performance servers could accommodate this amount of internal storage ?
A. x3850 (x366)
B. x3950 (x460)
C. x3800 (x260)

Answer: C

9. A small bio-technical company is interested in implementing a 32-node Linux cluster. They developed their own software that allows all of the nodes to work on the same problem at the same time. The application requires messages to be passed between the nodes. Each node will require access to a shared storage pool of around 500GB.
To identify throughput requirements for the storage pool, which of the following is the most appropriate question to ask?
A. Is high availability required?
B. Which network protocols are going to be used?
C. What are the expected I/O's per second to the storage?
D. To what network infrastructure is the storage pool connected?
Answer: C

10. A customer is planning to implement a new x3950 (x460)in their datacenter. To ensure a trouble free installation, which of the following should the customer prepare prior to the implementation?
A. Install the exhaust fan on top of the IBM NetBAY 42 Enterprise rack for extra cooling
B. Ensure a 260V power source for the x3950(x460) and BladeCenter is available for fully redundant power
C. Install the new 10GBit Ethernet network to take advantage of the new network switch in the x3950(x460).
D. Have their Network Operation Staff review and assist connecting the new server to their existing network.
Answer: D
