We have access to infiniband and ethernet communication on a supercomputing system. Could you suggest which mode of communiciation would be preferable for running Glide jobs?

Glide splits the overall job into several independent subjobs that can run simultaneously. Since each subjob proceeds with very little network activity, the performance is not expected to be network bound, and hence an ethernet network will be just fine for Glide.
