Soft RoCE

Soft RoCE

is a software implementation of IBoE(InfiniBand over Ethernet).

You can program your InfiniBand program and run it on any Ether devices(e.g. 1 GbE ethernet) without RoCE-capable HBA.

I got success to install and run Soft RoCE on Ubuntu 10.4 TLS running on VMWare fusion, on my MacBookPro(CentOS 5.7 and CentOS 6.2 doesn’t work well. kernel patching failed).

Which means you don’t need InfiniBand hardware to program and test your IB Verbs program.

Happy IB verbs coding with Soft RoCE!
