EE Times: "A consortium of more than 20 companies including HP,
Intel, Sun and Linux proponents is quietly forming to draft an application
programming interface for Infiniband on Unix. The group, which could
launch formally before the end of the summer, hopes to have a first draft
of the API available for free licensing by the end of the year.
The API could give developers of servers, server-based applications and
systems software a leg up on optimizing their systems and applications to
get the full benefits of the Infiniband interconnect, which is expected to
emerge in 2002."
