Abstract: 

The SNIA defines tiered storage as “storage that is physically partitioned into multiple distinct classes based on price, performance or other attributes.” Although physical tiering of storage has been a common practice for decades, new interest in automated tiering has arisen due to increased availability of techniques that automatically promote “hot” data to high performance storage tiers – and demote “stale” data to low-cost tiers. Topics will include: • Fundamentals of Storage Tiering • Levels of granularity in tiering • Achieving optimal placement of data. • Recent innovations in logical and virtual tiering techniques • Using the cloud as a tier
