I'm looking for possibilities to accelerate our Hyper-V-Core Cluster Nodes who have X99 chipsets with 4 HDDs in raid 5 configuration.
Therefore I have two questions.
- Is it even possible to accelerate the raid system on bios level? Because without a GUI (Core Server) its not possible to use the typical Intel software.
- Does the SSD accelerate data inside individual virtual machines? Each VM has Virtual drives that are in one file and bigger than 512 GB.

Thanks for the help.
Thank you for contacting the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology for Enterprise support
We will be more than glad to investigate on your questions, however we will like to inform you that in order to run the Intel® RSTe software you need to have an Intel Xeon® E5 v3, v4 or v5 Processor and a chipset C610 or a c230 Series. However if you would like to use this configuration you can take advantage of using Intel® RST
