Storage Pools are defined in each class of storage :
- Primary Storage (for the data source)

Furthermore, this abstraction does the difference between what is considered as Primary Storage and as Secondary Storage.
For Secondary Storage, pools can be defined to organize the different storage systems available per type of Workflow Policy.
