Meet the ‘DPU’ – accelerated network cards designed to go where CPUs and GPUs are too valuable to waste

I guess the good-news in this, for those of us who are still running human-scale networks, is that these can offload some processing that the CPU is currently doing. So (slightly) more work is available from the CPU. Meaning we can (slightly) postpone having to add CPUs and their (not-at-all-slightly) associated VMWare/Windows/etc license costs.
