    difference between 10g ethernet switch and infiniband




      Voltaire this week announced a 40Gbps infiniband switch for datacenters that's designed to provide a low latency fabric for large, high-performance clusters.


      - i am bit confused with this inifiniband switch.

      how this infiniband is differ from 10g ethernet switch. i believe 10G switch is the highest speed switch available in the market.


      All i can understand abt inifiniband by googling is that inifiniband is switched fabric communications link primarily used in high performance computing.

      can anyone please throw more light on this?
