"InfiniBand maintains a solid position in server clusters where high bandwidth and low latency are key requirements. Additionally, senior executives want to undertake an 'operational' transformation of IT to boost the effective use of those assets and make it easier for organizations to react quickly to major positive or negative changes in the business environment. Trends in the datacenter such as the migration to virtualized IT and new single-pod approaches to datacenter buildouts support continued growth in InfiniBand." — Lucinda Borovick, IDC program vice president, Enterprise Communications and Datacenter Networks
