| 1: if DPDK is something that our team can utilize for providing a

| that use standard unix networking interface to develop software)
| can use ? or DPDK is relevant mostly for companies that build Core
| Networking Hardware and Software products ?
this would be very usecase dependent.
fwiw, dpdk doesnt really come with a canonical network stack, and you
would need something for app folks to use.
if you look at bunch of sample applications
(http://dpdk.org/doc/guides/sample_app_ug/index.html) you can get a
fair idea of effort etc. required for your usecase.
In the beginning was the lambda, and the lambda was with Emacs, and Emacs
was the lambda.
