That might be a solution. But we also want to chain our current old
cluster (based on 100 Mbps ethernet switch) into the new cluster. Will
that be a problem (Infiniband + Ethernet)?


I would think that combining the two you are going to limit the system
to 100 Mbps plus you could start getting data clashes from the faster IB
which could slow down the network even more.
