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 configuration guide provides the steps for users to set up Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (Intel® VROC) with the Linux* operating systems Ubuntu* 18.04.3 LTS Server and Ubuntu* 18.04.4 LTS Server. This configuration guide is based on the Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (Intel® VROC) User Guide for Linux*.
