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

All of the real life DPUs I've seen used in the marginal-workload/start-up storage world, require a proprietary interconnect or other out of band 'network' (usually 100% blackbox with no admin/user visibility). With this, the value proposition quickly diminishes. Interesting that there's no mention of this in many of the cheerleading articles on the topic.
