Figure maybe someone on this list would know because I imagine people
use faster than gigabit ethernet in xen solutions.

I picked up two "Flextronics 24-port 4X 1U SDR InfiniBand Switch" for
$285 and $340 or (so about $600 for the two shipped) used on ebay.
Everywhere I look I see them listed $2,500 new.

I have split emotions on this. I already got one of them, it looked
primo condition but I dont have cables or cards yet to test it. But
either I am totally stoked on scoring two switches and saving $4,400
or Im going to find out they suck or something? Or the seller ripped
them off from somewhere and sold super cheap on ebay or...
