Yet another protocol, yet another layer violation.
So RDMA over a lossless IP network: even more horrible than RDMA over a lossless Ethernet network. How about an RDMA protocol which was either optimised for IP (oh wait, we already have that - it's called iWARP), or an RDMA protocol which is optimised for Ethernet (oh no you can't have that because it's not IBA). I'm just sorry that some folks in the cloud (given the press releases) have drunk the cool aid. Bob must be laughing himself off his chair!
I clearly must be getting old, and wonder how long this post will survive without censorship. But seriously if you read this, please do go look at the graveyard of has-been / wanna-be useless protocols and don't waste your time!
