  • RDMA benefits:

  • Hardware data fragmentation

  • Hardware data reassembly

  • No user/kernel data copies

  • 2.5x Performance Increase

  • 5 memory operations become 2

  • Oracle, DB2, SQL run VI today

  • VI bypasses the kernel stack

  • 7000/50 instruction advantageInfiniBand standardizes the adapter architecture and the OS interface to the adapter as well as the format of data on the wire
