I think we can manage your requirements using that replication factor. Your expectations are
something different that this?

Thanks for your reply. In hdfs only one thing we can do is that we could 
set replication factor to change replication  strategy, but we can not 
change where the block is stored and what type of storage that we stored 
the data. Just think this  case: In order to improve the downloading 
speed, I can choose my block replication near my location or near 
someone's location. I mean that users could have more option to decide 
their block replication strategy.
