  I agree. Infiniband may be very attractive as potential
interconnect for cluster nodes and potentially may
compete w/Myrinet ;-) At the last IDF (Spring-2002, San-Francisco,
where I was) it were presented many Infiniband solutions.
Moreover, it was presented special track (by NCSA) about
using of Infiniband for MPI communications.
