    setup ssd cache on MS Core Server


      Hello Community.


      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.


      1. 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.
      2. Does the SSD accelerate data inside individual virtual machines? Each VM has Virtual drives that are in one file and bigger than 512 GB.



      ASUS X99-E

      4 X WD 30EFRX RED


      Thanks for the help.
