DetailsThe RNICPI specification establishes an industry standard for the host integration of RDMA fabrics. It unifies RDMA services support over different transports – including iWARP and InfiniBand – with provisions to allow the addition of future transports. As an Open Standard, it aims at operating system vendor and RDMA hardware vendor independence.
The standard provides a way out of the problem of multiple de facto and vendor-specific interfaces for RDMA technology. To vendors, it potentially cuts development costs by reducing the number of supported interfaces. To customers, it provides freedom of transport choice by providing a transport-neutral interface. RNICPI is laying the foundation for wider acceptance of emerging RDMA technology in the industry. The RNICPI specification is published in association with the Interconnect Software Consortium (ICSC).
