Story points-
Velocity based estimate-


As an Arvados system administrator, I'd want the ability take advantage of the cool/cold storage classes offered by cloud vendors.

This would potentially require the ability to designate storage tier in some way (collection, all collections in a project, etc) as well as a way to migrate between storage classes/locations,
