Based on what I have seen from my customers over the last year, the move to 10GB is happening now. All new servers we build have at least one 10gb port. All of the storage servers we shipped over the last year have at least 2 10gb ports and many have 4. Several are still using Infiniband, but that seems to be less and less as companies move to the 10gb nic's.
I am working on several projects that have multiple (more than 4) 10gb ports and some have 24...
At the Intel Solutions Summit, I learned that the price of the 10gb nic's are coming down fast and the switches should follow soon.
