InfiniBand in the Spotlight: Page 3 of 3

QLogic's InfiniBand switch was scheduled for commercial availability this quarter. So far, no sales have been recorded, although the switch is in trials with IBM Corp. (NYSE: IBM), according to Davis.

It's worth noting that InfiniBand has some heavyweight backers, which include not only IBM but also Sun Microsystems Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW) and Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC). Around 50 startups, including software companies, switch makers, and chip firms, are also working on products and services in this field. Between $150 million and $300 million of venture capital money is estimated to be riding on InfiniBand startups.
