-    <para>Primary storage is associated with a cluster and/or a zone. It stores the

+    <para>Primary storage is associated with a cluster and/or a zone. It stores the
disk volumes for all of the VMs running on hosts in that cluster. You can add multiple primary
storage servers to a cluster or a zone (at least one is required at the cluster level). Primary
storage is typically located close to the hosts for increased performance. &PRODUCT; manages
the allocation of guest virtual disks to particular primary storage devices.</para>
     <para>Primary storage uses the concept of a storage tag. A storage tag is a label
that is used to identify the primary storage. Each primary storage can be associated with
zero, one, or more storage tags. When a VM is spun up or a data disk attached to a VM for
the first time, these tags, if supplied, are used to determine which primary storage can support
the VM or data disk (ex. say you need to guarantee a certain number of IOPS to a particular
volume).</para>
     <para>Primary storage can be either static or dynamic. Static primary storage is
what CloudStack has traditionally supported. In this model, the administrator must present
CloudStack with a certain amount of preallocated storage (ex. a volume from a SAN) and CloudStack
can place many of its volumes on this storage. In the newer, dynamic model, the administrator
can present CloudStack with a storage system itself (ex. a SAN). CloudStack, working in concert
with a plug-in developed for that storage system, can dynamically create volumes on the storage
system. A valuable use for this ability is Quality of Service (QoS). If a volume created in
CloudStack can be backed by a dedicated volume on a SAN (i.e. a one-to-one mapping between
a SAN volume and a CloudStack volume) and the SAN provides QoS, then CloudStack can provide
QoS.</para>
     <para>&PRODUCT; is designed to work with all standards-compliant iSCSI and
NFS servers that are supported by the underlying hypervisor, including, for example:</para>
