An architect is tasked with designing a greenfield VMware software-defined data center (SDDC) solution that will be used to deliver a private cloud service for a customer.
During the initial meeting with the service owner and business sponsor, the customer has provided the following information to help inform the design:
✑ The solution must initially support the concurrent running of 300 production and 600 development virtual machines.
✑ The production environment should be delivered across two geographically dispersed data centers. The development environment must be vSphere-based but does not have to be deployed on-premises.
✑ The two data centers are connected to each other through multiple diversely routed, high bandwidth and low latency links.
✑ The customer’s server hardware standard document states that all virtual infrastructure hosts must be based on blade architecture only.
✑ The service owner has said that is important to ensure that neither the availability target of 99.5% nor the resource capacity is affected when the operations team completes maintenance activities, such as the monthly software patching and ad-hoc hardware break/fix.
✑ All virtual machine backups must be completed using the existing backup service. The recovery time objective (RTO) for the service is four hours.
✑ The recovery point objective (RPO) of the service is 24 hours.
Given the information from the customer, which two would be classified as assumptions within the design? (Choose two.)
A . The backup service will store data in a secure facility
B . The backup service has sufficient capacity for the new requirements
C . The customer will update their hardware standard to support rack mount servers
D . All virtual machines will be deployed with the same resource profile for production and development
E . The clusters will have a minimum redundancy of N+1
