We've been having some discussions where I work about storage tier classification and I wondered how others in this forum are going about tier classification? Also, how are any of you using Dynamic Tiering? Do you use HDT pools to economically provide storage classified as a specific tier or do you us HDT as a sort of automatic tiering? In other words, do you create an HDP pool and then provision to apps with different tier requirements or do you create an HDT pool with a mix of SSD, 15k and 10k FC or SAS drives and call all storage from that pool tier-1 for example?

Does it ever make any sense to call both 10k drives and 15k drives equivalent tiers?

Any comments and opinions on the topic appreciated.
