AFAIK, vSMP currently requires to use Infiniband. I would be interested to understand your plan according to Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet according to the fact that using TRILL bandwidth can be aggregated.
You are right, Infiniband is used for backpane implimentation.
You can use any of the supported Mellanox or Intel IB cards (see http://www.scalemp/spec).
A second IB HCA cardv can be exposed to teh OS, if needed.
Any supported 1G / 10G card can be exposed to the OS to be used as a regular NIC.
I was meaning an Ethernet implementation of a backpane for vSMP.
Thanks for clarifying this.
As stated, backplane is implimented using InfiniBand (Mellanox or Intel).
