Network adapter I assume? I would go for the fastest you can afford, of course depending on your switches, and if you can RDMA

Exactly, My means was Network adapter. I am using cisco nexus 5000 switch .

1- As I know RDMA is suitable for vms with Linux OS is that correct ?

2- Is that your means search in network adapter data sheet to support RDMA and choose it ?

vSAN and vSphere also support RDMA, it provides a lower-latency connection between hosts for vSAN traffic, or vMotion etc.
