Free Amazon SOA-C02 Exam Actual Questions

Note: Premium Questions for SOA-C02 were last updated On Jun. 17, 2024 (see below)

Question #1

A company's SysOps administrator maintains a highly available environment. The environment includes Amazon EC2 instances and an Amazon RDS Multi-AZ database. The EC2 instances are in an Auto Scaling group behind an Application Load Balancer.

Recently, the company conducted a failover test. The SysOps administrator needs to decrease the failover time of the RDS database by at least 10%.

Which solution will meet this requirement?

Question #2

A webpage is stored in an Amazon S3 bucket behind an Application Load Balancer (ALB). Configure the SS bucket to serve a static error page in the event of a failure at the primary site.

1. Use the us-east-2 Region for all resources.

2. Unless specified below, use the default configuration settings.

3. There is an existing hosted zone named lab- that contains an A record with a simple routing policy that routes traffic to an existing ALB.

4. Configure the existing S3 bucket named as a static hosted website using the object named index.html as the index document

5. For the index-html object, configure the S3 ACL to allow for public read access. Ensure public access to the S3 bucketjs allowed.

6. In Amazon Route 53, change the A record for domain to a primary record for a failover routing policy. Configure the record so that it evaluates the health of the ALB to determine failover.

7. Create a new secondary failover alias record for the domain that routes traffic to the existing 53 bucket.

Correct Answer: A

Here are the steps to configure an Amazon S3 bucket to serve a static error page in the event of a failure at the primary site:

Log in to the AWS Management Console and navigate to the S3 service in the us-east-2 Region.

Find the existing S3 bucket named and click on it.

In the 'Properties' tab, click on 'Static website hosting' and select 'Use this bucket to host a website'.

In 'Index Document' field, enter the name of the object that you want to use as the index document, in this case, 'index.html'

In the 'Permissions' tab, click on 'Block Public Access', and make sure that 'Block all public access' is turned OFF.

Click on 'Bucket Policy' and add the following policy to allow public read access:


'Version': '2012-10-17',

'Statement': [


'Sid': 'PublicReadGetObject',

'Effect': 'Allow',

'Principal': '*',

'Action': 's3:GetObject',

'Resource': '*'




Now navigate to the Amazon Route 53 service, and find the existing hosted zone named

Click on the 'A record' and update the routing policy to 'Primary - Failover' and add the existing ALB as the primary record.

Click on 'Create Record' button and create a new secondary failover alias record for the domain that routes traffic to the existing S3 bucket.

Now, when the primary site (ALB) goes down, traffic will be automatically routed to the S3 bucket serving the static error page.


You can use CloudWatch to monitor the health of your ALB.

You can use Amazon S3 to host a static website.

You can use Amazon Route 53 for routing traffic to different resources based on health checks.

You can refer to the AWS documentation for more information on how to configure and use these services:

Question #3

Create an Amazon EventBridge (Amazon CloudWatch Events) rule to invoke an AWS Lambda function on a daily basis. Configure the function to restore the DB cluster to a point in time and then delete the previous DB cluster. This is the most operationally efficient solution that meets the requirements, as it will allow the company to reset the database on a daily basis without having to manually take and restore snapshots. The other solutions (creating a manual snapshot of the DB cluster, enabling the Backtrack feature, or exporting a manual snapshot of the DB cluster to Amazon S3) will require additional steps and resources to reset the database on a daily basis.

A company hosts an application on an Amazon EC2 instance in a single AWS Region. The application requires support for non-HTTP TCP traffic and HTTP traffic.

The company wants to deliver content with low latency by leveraging the AWS network. The company also wants to implement an Auto Scaling group with an

Elastic Load Balancer.

How should a SysOps administrator meet these requirements?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: D

AWS Global Accelerator and Amazon CloudFront are separate services that use the AWS global network and its edge locations around the world. CloudFront improves performance for both cacheable content (such as images and videos) and dynamic content (such as API acceleration and dynamic site delivery). Global Accelerator improves performance for a wide range of applications over TCP or UDP by proxying packets at the edge to applications running in one or more AWS Regions. Global Accelerator is a good fit for non-HTTP use cases, such as gaming (UDP), IoT (MQTT), or Voice over IP, as well as for HTTP use cases that specifically require static IP addresses or deterministic, fast regional failover. Both services integrate with AWS Shield for DDoS protection.

Question #4

A company runs an application on Amazon EC2 instances. The EC2 instances are in an Auto Scaling group and run behind an Application Load Balancer (ALB). The application experiences errors when total requests exceed 100 requests per second. A SysOps administrator must collect information about total requests for a 2-week period to determine when requests exceeded this threshold.

What should the SysOps administrator do to collect this data?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: A

Using the ALB's RequestCount metric will allow the SysOps administrator to collect information about total requests for a 2-week period and determine when requests exceeded the threshold of 100 requests per second. Configuring a time range of 2 weeks and a period of 1 minute will ensure that the data can be accurately examined to determine peak traffic times and volumes.

Question #5

A company's application currently uses an IAM role that allows all access to all AWS services. A SysOps administrator must ensure that the company's IAM policies allow only the permissions that the application requires.

How can the SysOps administrator create a policy to meet this requirement?

Reveal Solution Hide Solution
Correct Answer: D

Generate a policy by using AWS Identity and Access Management Access Analyzer. AWS CloudTrail is a service that records all API calls made on your account. You can use this data to generate a policy with AWS Identity and Access Management Access Analyzer that only allows the permissions that the application requires. This will ensure that the application only has the necessary permissions and will protect the company from any unauthorized access.
