This document describes the applicability of Remote Direct Memory
Access Protocol (RDMAP) and the Direct Data Placement Protocol (DDP).
It compares and contrasts the different transport options over IP
that DDP can use, provides guidance to ULP developers on choosing
between available transports and/or how to be indifferent to the
specific transport layer used, compares use of DDP with direct use of
the supporting transports, and compares DDP over IP transports with
non-IP transports that support RDMA functionality.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Remote Direct Data Placement
Working Group of the IETF.
