About RDMA over RoCE or InfiniBand networks in a clustering environment

Remote direct memory access (RDMA) is a direct memory access capability that allows server to server data movement directly between application memories with minimal CPU involvement. Data transfer using RDMA needs RDMA-enabled network cards and switches. Networks designed with RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) and InfiniBand architecture support RDMA capability. RDMA provides fast interconnect between user-space applications or file systems between nodes over these networks. In a clustering environment, RDMA capability allows applications on separate nodes to transfer data at a faster rate with low latency and less CPU usage.
