As I understand it  Ceph has no qos type control built-in and creating pools using different hardware is as granular as it gets. The two don't quite seem comparable to me so I was hoping to get some feedback, as to whether or not this is still useful/appropriate, before attempting to do any work.

Ceph does not currently have any qos support, but relies on QEMU's io
throttling, which Cinder and Nova can configure.

There is interest in adding better throttling to Ceph itself though,
since writes from QEMU may be combined before writing to Ceph when
caching is used. There was a session on this at the Ceph developer
summit earlier this week:
