Hi Folks,

Anyone come across or try out a killer use case for RDMA / RoCE? I know there are custom builds of some hadoop based apps but what have you found to be a great use of this tech? I have the box, now need the project. :)

High sustained throughput NFS4 or CIFS, mostly. When you absolutely, positively have to transfer that 8k video master to the SAN ASAP, that's where RoCE shines.
