Introduction
Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (Intel® VROC) is a software package for RAID volume
management with the Intel® Core™ X-Series Processor and the MSI® X299-Series
Motherboard. These CPUs have a new hardware architecture. Intel VROC leverages
this architecture to enable NVMe RAID, connect via a PCIe connection and directly
manage on the CPU.
Intel VROC provides compelling RAID performance that unleashes the full potential
of NVMe drives. This reliable RAID solution for data protection is easy to scale with
flexible drive configurations.
System Requirement
y Motherboard: MSI® X299-Series Motherboard
y Processor: Intel® Core™ X-Series Processor (44-lane or 28-lane CPU) (6-core or
above)
y Upgrade Key: Intel® VROC Upgrade Key (purchased separately)
ƒ Standard Key - supports RAID 0,1,10 with Intel® NVMe SSD Devices & 3rd party
SSD Devices
ƒ Premium Key - supports RAID 0,1,5,10 with Intel® NVMe SSD Devices & 3rd party
SSD Devices
ƒ Intel SSD Only Key - supports RAID 0,1,5,10 with Intel® NVMe SSD Devices
y SSD: At least two SSD Devices
Creating Virtual RAID
To create a RAID with VROC:
1. Power off the computer.
2. Install the VROC Upgrade Key to the VRAID1 connector on the motherboard.
3. Install the Intel® NVMe SSD Devices in the PCIe slots or M.2 slots controlled by
CPU PCIe lanes.
4. Power on and press DEL key to enter the BIOS interface.
5. Go to the BIOS > SETTINGS > Advanced > VROC Configuration
*The PCIe slots list in CPU PCIe Lanes Configuration screen shown is for reference only.
6. Set the installed slots to Enabled.
7. Press F10 to save configuration and exit.

8. Go to the BIOS > SETTINGS > Advanced > Intel(R) Virtual RAID on CPU > All Intel
VMD Controllers > Create RAID Volume
9. If you want to install the operating system onto the RAID array, you must install
Intel® NVMe SSD Devices in the same VMD controller. If you install Intel® NVMe
SSD Devices in separate VMD controllers, set Enable RAID spanned over VMD
Controllers to [X] by pressing space key.
10. Select at least two disks by pressing space key, and then click the Create Volume
item.
