Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (Intel® VROC) and Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise (Intel® RSTe) were previously related products in the same product family. The SATA RAID portion of the product family was called Intel RSTe and the NVMe* RAID portion was called Intel VROC. However, starting in Q1 2019, with the launch of Intel VROC 6.0, the Intel RSTe name was removed, and all RAID solutions in this product family were branded as Intel VROC. The SATA functionality remains, but is now branded as Intel VROC (SATA RAID). Intel RSTe is no longer a referenced product by Intel. The name may still appear in some legacy products, but all new references will solely use the Intel VROC nomenclature.
For NVMe RAID, Intel VROC (VMD NVMe RAID) is architected to use Intel® Volume Management Device (Intel® VMD) to provide the following new features to NVMe SSDs:
- Bootable RAID
- Surprise hot-plug
- LED management
- RAID 5 Double Fault Protection
- Support for third-party SSDs
