Adaptec, Broadcom, HP, IBM, Intel, Microsoft Corp. and Network Appliance have formed the Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) Consortium, an independent consortium that will develop the architectural specifications necessary to implement products that provide RDMA over TCP/IP networks, including Ethernet-based networks.

The RDMA Consortium is complementary to the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), an open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet. The IETF is expected to charter an "RDMA over Internet Protocol Suite" working group in the coming months.

Version 1.0 of the RDMA over TCP/IP architectural specifications are expected to be completed by RDMA Consortium members in the second half of 2002, with a goal of supporting product implementation in the 2003/2004 timeframe. The final specifications for RDMA over TCP/IP will be determined by a representation of industry partners in the RDMA Consortium and concerned industry standards organizations.
