dear all,

second post ;)

another question here, also in most examples i noticed the infiniband or 
10 GigE recommendation, does this really do any good for the individual 
server connection?
another assumption on my side was that 1 individual server can never 
saturate a full gigabit link due to the disk throughput limitation, 
(maybe a few 100 MBps at most)

so if every server has a 1 Gigabit connection to a switch which in turn 
has a 10 GigE uplink it would not be a bottleneck (as long as there are 
not too many servers sharing the 10 GigE uplink)



Just another collection of nuts
