NVMEoF looks intriguing. Sadly, we wait at least another 10 years from now when NVMEoE becomes a consumer thing.

we are a special type of consumer here at STH
Its certainly I think one of the ways storage will evolve in the near future, expect to see more like this.

What makes this different from Seagate's failed Kinetic drives?

If you scoure eBay you can still find supermicro servers 10G servers that are useless without those kinetic drives.

These new drives use a standard NVMeOF is a normal NVMe protocol over ethernet, it can take advantage of what is now common RDMA networking stacks (be that infiniband, RoCE, iWARP), so while it’s new the standards seem to be well accepted.
basically the flash media, the protocols, network stack including high speed physics are all shall we say mature at the right time and ready to go. also applications and systems have evolved to using a lot more JBOD / JBOF where in the past the replied more on the hardware for redundancy.
