One popular networking media in supercomputer environment is HIPPI,
which comes in two flavors, 800 Mbps and 1600 Mbps. HIPPI (High
Performance Parallel Interface) can be switched to form a network
between hosts and disks. I don't know if there are any HIPPI interface
cards for PC's, but we have HIPPI on SGI's (big Challenge and Origin
2000 though), Convex and (of course) NEC SX-4.
