Having tiered storage is one of the stronger features that have drawn 
me towards Cloudstack, it should work better.
I do plan to have a second, slower tier for backups and other more 
passive applications.

KVM volume snapshots worked well in 4.2.1 AFAIK and they still work 
well in 4.3, but VM snapshots are still not supported and I don't think 
they will be any time soon. We might get somewhere with it if we opt for 
LVM thin storage and snapshots, that'd be cool.
