Storage Spaces advanced tiering
Storage Spaces tiering could be enhanced in the following ways:
- Compressed tier
- Deduplicated tier
- Public cloud tier

They could implement it higher up in the stack but that might break the coherence they built in Storage Spaces. If they would support Storage Spaces as an OS drive somehow, they could use cloud tiering to fix possibly the OneDrive story and open this up to millions of users.

Somewhat agreed. I would like to see Cloud-tiering implemented at a higher level in the stack, because this would open up this solution to a much greater market. From the MSFT perspective, adding cloud-tier into Windows Server would sell waaaay more Azure storage account capacity than StorSimple ever will.
