   I am contemplating a project with a pair of machines with 36 drives 
each, with DRBD.  I have used DRBD with Ethernet products quite 
successfully before, but in the interest of performance, I am 
considering using Infiniband on this project.

   I know that I can simply configure IPoIB and run DRBD over that, but 
I would imagine that there is a more efficient way of doing things.  If 
anyone could point me to tips, texts, links, or other documentation on 
efficient use of Infiniband for this purpose, I would greatly appreciate it.
