Experience with Infiniband

Anyone out there using Infiniband in production?

I’m curious if this stuff is coming down in price when compared to 10gE. The switch costs for 10gE are just insane so I imagine Infiniband is in a similar situation.

Another major advantage of Infiniband is the reduction in latency. Of course the Linux stack will almost certainly add this back in – it’s apparently terrible at low packet latency applications.
