iSCSI over RDMA (iSER) drivers for either ESXi 5.x or 6.x

Where do I download the latest Mellanox iSCSI over RDMA (iSER) drivers for either ESXi 5.x or 6.x?

Are there Mellanox iSCSI over RDMA (iSER) released versions for ESXi 6.x or are they still in beta?

Thanks,

Julian

Hello John Kim,

what driver version has iSER enabled?

how would i go about getting this driver for vSphere 5.5?

Julian,

iSCSI RDMA (iSER) drivers are not yet available for VMware ESXi 6.x. They are available for ESXi 5.5 and we do expect they will be available for ESXi 6.x later.

How are we to use Infiniband as SAN technology on ESX 6.x?

The VMware ESXi iSER initiator is included in the MLNX-OFED ESX driver for VMware ESX/ESXi 5.x You can find those here:

Are you able to provide a more specific timeline instead of just ‘later’?

Thanks,

Julian

Julian,

I apologize I don’t remember what I said “later” to. If you are talking about iSER for VMware ESXi 5.5, I believe they are available now.
