DPU: 3 letters for Data Processing Units. Their purpose: moving data in data centers, from network packets to storage blocks. They are a type of new class of programmable processor, after CPUs and GPUs. Will they become mainstream? Or at least a reality? What exactly can they bring? And obviously, the most important task: how do we integrate them around Xen? This talk will explain what DPUs are, why this trend is growing and how they could tackle some existing issues in the virtualization world. Note: this talk won't go deep into technological details, consider it as an intro for a design session coming afterward.
