    That is very disappointing. I was hoping to do a tiered setup w/ an 320GB SLC ioDrive Duo and a RAIDZ2 iSCSI share (over 10GbE). But if it isn't going to perform I won't bother even trying.

    Yeah, not sure if I did anything wrong, but I did it twice to confirm...

    Here are my results:

    4 disks by themselves:

    4-disk with a 2-column stripe for ~double speeds
    [​IMG]

    Built an ssd tier and even had write caching enabled with the ssds and the perf was worse than a 4-disk mirror with striping...

    This is how I built it... anything wrong you can see in there?
    Code:
    $pd = (Get-PhysicalDisk -CanPool $True | Where MediaType -NE UnSpecified)
    New-StoragePool -PhysicalDisks $pd –StorageSubSystemFriendlyName “Windows Storage*” -FriendlyName “StoragePool”
    
    $ssdTier = New-StorageTier -StoragePoolFriendlyName "StoragePool" -FriendlyName SSDTier -MediaType SSD
    $hddTier = New-StorageTier -StoragePoolFriendlyName "StoragePool" -FriendlyName HDDTier -MediaType HDD
    
    New-VirtualDisk -StoragePoolFriendlyName "StoragePool" -FriendlyName TieredSpace -StorageTiers $ssdtier, $hddtier -StorageTierSizes 1090GB, 7260GB -ResiliencySettingName Mirror -WriteCacheSize 1GB
    
    Get-VirtualDisk TieredSpace | Get-Disk | Initialize-Disk -PartitionStyle GPT
    Get-VirtualDisk TieredSpace | Get-Disk | New-Partition -DriveLetter “E” -UseMaximumSize
    Initialize-Volume -DriveLetter “E” -FileSystem REFS -Confirm:$false
    Thoughts?

    Did you change the media type for the iodrives manually or were they automatically detected as ssds?

    Auto-detected as SSDs.
