How to simulate slow storage device

Hello all.

I need to be able to simulate a slow storage device. I need to be able to configure/set the throughput of the device, and thus, simulate performance issues.

Any Idea how can I do that ? Or if there is a software that provides this kind of simulation ?

Thank for all the replies.
