Q1:
Does the above perform like a hybrid (ie SSD+HDD) drive which will auto-cache to SSD &
then move to HDD?

Q2:
Does it do auto-tiering (like certain high-end SAN) which moves IO hotspots to SSD & move
the low/hardly used data to Fibre disk/SATA?

Q3:
When formatted/partitioned, do we see 1 partition or 2 partitions in this dual-drive thing?
