Consistent Resizing for Storage

Extend the concept of consistent sizing for grouped servers to storage on the grouped servers. For instance, if i have servers in a cluster or servers that have been grouped together via tagging and rule, if there is a recommendation for storage, use the concept of consistent sizing to apply to the comparable storage on all devices in a group. This is especially important when there is a primary/failover concept and if a disk is moved to SDD on the primary server, the secondary server should be consistent with that. If not, when failover happens there will be a performance impact.

    Having the ability to create policy for volume tiers for just efficiency or performance would also be helpful. This would allow for manual or partially automated efficiency changes to be made and have policy for performance changes.
