For hypervisor datastores that offer different service levels, you can use datastore tiers to present them in Abiquo and price them appropriately. Administrators or users can choose the tier with the desired service level for VM hard disks. They can set also default datastore tiers for a VM template, virtual datacenter, or VM. And they can select a tier when creating VMs or adding hard disks on the hypervisor datastore.
