NFS/RDMA is a binding of NFS to RPC/RDMA, an RPC-layer protocol
that allows NFS to use RDMA networks such as InfiniBand and iWARP.
NFS/RDMA transparently allows applications, NFS protocol features,
and NFS users to take advantage of high bandwidth, low latency RDMA
This project was created in 2004 to develop an NFS/RDMA client and server
for Linux. The project released implementations of NFS/RDMA for Linux 2.4
and 2.6, culminating in the acceptance of the NFS/RDMA client and server into
mainline Linux. The NFS/RDMA client was merged into mainline Linux
2.6.24 (released in January 2008) and the NFS/RDMA server was merged into
mainline Linux 2.6.25 (released in April 2008).
To obtain the NFS/RDMA client and server implementations for Linux, please
