    i too would like some actual information on a release estimate. not "contact x individual or group" I want something publicly stated. I'm sorry, but when whole papers are written up and published about a feature and how it performs, or series of features--i expect follow through on the order of months to quarters----not years.

    but who am i kidding--infiniband I have found is full of these feature promises, and teases--with complete lack of implement::

    -SR-IOV "Hardware based io virtualization" touted since first ConnectX -- still not implemented in esxi.

    -vRDMA

    -directpath--only to find out it's functional for some OS's despite being a known bug, not documented to firmware notes

    -press releases about-features availability--yet nothing available for download for months or ever
