Over the past few months I have been working on a number of projects within the vCloud Hybrid Service. One of these projects has been working with Storage Tiers in the cloud. Recently vCloud Hybrid Service launched new tier of storage Standard Storage. Offering multiple storage tiers is a critical part of delivering cloud services to consumers who needed different levels of service.

I wanted to link to a couple of articles over on the VMware vCloud blog that I think are important to read and understand when considering how to architect your cloud workloads.
The two articles above really demonstrate the power of how you can architect your workloads to leverage different cost models, based on your requirements for performance vs cost, and how simple it is to implement these deployments into Infrastructure as a Service.
