Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (Intel® VROC) Supported Configurations





Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (Intel® VROC) is an enterprise RAID solution that unleashes the performance of NVMe* SSDs. Intel® VROC is enabled by a feature in Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors called Intel® Volume Management Device (Intel® VMD), an integrated controller inside the CPU PCIe root complex. NVMe SSDs are directly connected to the CPU, allowing the full performance potential of fast storage devices to be realized. Intel® VROC enables these benefits without the complexity, cost, and power consumption of traditional hardware RAID host bus adapter (HBA) cards placed between the drives and the CPU.

The following document covers the Solid-State Drives (SSDs), Operating Systems (OSs), and configurations supported by Intel® VROC. The current Intel® VROC Supported Configurations document is up to date for Intel® VROC revisions 8.2 and below.

What you should know about the Intel® VROC package
  • System vendors may customize the Intel® VROC package for their specific platforms. Reference your OEM for a full list of available feature sets. If any of the information in this document conflicts with the support information provided by the platform OEM, the platform documentation and configurations take precedence.
  • The support guidance is dependent on the Intel® VROC package version being used. All support information is contained in one document, categorized by Intel® VROC version. Reference the information for the version you are using.
