Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise (RSTe)

You can create and manage RAID arrays on the Oracle Servers X7-2 and X7-2L SATA M.2 (SSDs) using Intel Rapid Storage Technology Enterprise (RSTe) which provides the following benefits:

  • Additional protection from data loss.

  • Data is protected against a drive failure when you configure your system for RAID level 1 (mirror).

  • Additional advantage of allowing an operating system to install directly to the RAID volume.

  • BIOS exports the volumes as a target device to the operating system installer, streamlining the OS installation.

  • The OS uses the system CPUs to manage and configure the RAID volumes.

You can configure the volumes from the BIOS level or from Windows or Linux operating systems.

Note -  Oracle Solaris does not support RSTe. You can mirror Oracle Solaris M.2 root volumes with Oracle ZFS File System.
