I recently swapped out my Infiniband 10g hardware for 10 gigabit over fiber so I snapped a few photos to post this kit on eBay. I thought I’d post them here as well for posterity’s sake.
This solution was rock solid and I would have kept it running if the hardware adapters didn’t get deprecated in later versions of VMware. Since I was moving to ESX 6.7 this was a non-starter so to eBay it went!
Details of the switch itself:
