Juan,
Everything in this world is based on your assumptions.
The system defaults are set that way to eliminate risk - not for peak performance or efficiency - to achieve that requires admin decisions and monitoring which when done - As we have on hundreds of systems - removes the issues you refer to.
Second assumption - that teiring has a fixed value - it does not, it is relative - and therefore there are some environments where it is of lesser value, and thus not as desirable. There are also alternate options which may be more desirable.
I for one prefer a storage landscape where we have a number of storage players which actively seek to travel different design strategies, as in that way I am able to choose those that fit my requirements for each different client.
All journeys are different if you start and end in different places.

Thanks for your comment, Adriaan.

I definately agree on the different vendor issue, this reflect many ways to solve different issues, thus permitting evolution. This moves us forward.

I must state, in many aspects, I have enjoyed DOT. And I still enjoy it ;)

But my criticism comes as an answer to a precise statement "...not so dependent on tiers...".

Under my point of view, this doesn't reflect a real situation, so I believe is a misleading comment.

Tiering, as I stated, is a feature. And in many cases is a strategy (when you decide to use that feature as a policy mainstream). Allright, use it just if you need it. That's all it takes.

But, honestly, I do not believe this can be called dependency.

Cheers
