Explains which NVMe* driver you should use based on your OS.
Not able to identify correct NVMe* driver to install for the Intel® SSD.
The driver you need to install for your Intel® NVMe SSD depends on the OS you are using.
Intel provides three different drivers that can be used for NVMe SSDs:
- Data Center NVMe* Microsoft Windows* Drivers for Intel® SSDs
- Client NVMe* Microsoft Windows* Drivers for Intel® SSDs
- Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (Intel® RST) driver
- Intel® RST driver includes the Intel® NVMe driver. However, this method only works on platforms that support flexible input/output (remapping). These platforms include 6th Generation Intel® Core™ Processors and later.
Linux distributions already include the inbox driver required to enable NVMe* support. If you need to update your driver, work with your platform vendor.
Work with your platform vendor to get the appropriate NVMe* driver based on your ESXi* version.
Note Intel only supports the Intel® NVMe* with ESXi* which can be downloaded from the VMware* site directly.
