DELL R740 XD2 "Hot-Tier"

Hello,

I would like to know how Hot-Tier works on the DELL R740 XD2.

I have seen on spec sheet as follows "Automatically tier data from 3.5” HDDs to 2.5” SSDs to balance performance and cost".

Do i configure it at Hardware RAID Level or its a software implementation?

Re: DELL R740 XD2 "Hot-Tier"

Hello

Automatic tiering, automatically moving data based on access, would be a software implementation. I'm not aware of a supported controller that manages tiers, but I did not look through the specs of all of them. The R740XD2 provides the disk slots and controller support to configure a tiered drive solution. There are many possible ways it could be implemented.

Thanks
