    Yes, I mentioned in my original post that the expression had been copy/pasted from an article. But in the article, it was one expression in the context of a whole paragraph. And the whole paragraph explained that Cold HDD was only an option for low throughput requirements. That’s the danger of just copy/pasting terms without context.

    In the exam prep question, the term was used in the last sentence, when the question summarizes the key requirements for the solution. So in that context, clearly it called for a solution that supports good throughput.

    I’ll stop arguing. As I put in a separate post, this is one of many poorly worded or flat out wrong questions. I started posting them, but them I got tired because there were too many. I’ve purchased many TutorialDojo exam preps, and I always speak highly of them. This particular set is unfortunately below average. I’m still using as a study guide, because it helps me focus on the different areas of the test. But the quality in this one is subpar.
