Default Infiniband

Does anyone here know anything about Infiniband? I keep hearing from like minded individuals how cheap 20-100Gb Infiniband can be had but don't know a damn thing about it besides very basic stuff.

If it's not run by Comcast, it won't take much to be more appealing, that's for damn sure.

Lol Infiniband is a type of network communication which primarily uses copper or fiber. It's local, usually in racks.

I'm kinda curious too. We're redoing our entire setup soon, was gonna go for a few aggregated SFP+ ports like normal but now this got me thinking...
