NAMD can be run over InfiniBand verbs

Pease note that NAMD can be run over InfiniBand verbs as well, not only on MPI. When running over InfiniBand verbs (for example using OFED drivers from OpenFabrics web site) you should expect around 10% performance improvement over MPI. When using InfiniBand verbs, the application is running closer to the interconnect hardware, therefore lower latency and overhead. If you need any help to run NAMD over verbs, please send a note to info at hpcadvisorycouncil dot com, or use the council Network of Experts.
