Infrastructure SAN Disk Tiers

The storage platform has multiple tiers of storage and data is automatically migrated between the different tiers to ensure the best performance.

Solid State Devices

This is a high-end tier of enterprise class storage based on the fastest Solid State Devices (SSD). This tier provides the highest performance. 

7.5K SATA

Relatively low end storage based on 7.5K rpm Serial ATA (SATA) disk technology. Least frequently used data will migrate down to this tier.
