You can configure and manage Remote Directory Memory Access (RDMA) networks and InfiniBand hardware at an enterprise level by using various protocols. These include RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE), the software implementation of RoCE (Soft-RoCE), the IP networks protocol such as iWARP, the software implementation of iWARP (Soft-iWARP), and the Network File System over RDMA (NFSoRDMA) protocol as a native support on RDMA-supported hardware. For low-latency and high-throughput connections, you can configure IP over InfiniBand (IPoIB) and Open Subnet Manager (OpenSM).
