What is DPDK about?

Before a couple of months ago I was not aware of a new technology called DPDK intended to accelerate packet processing on common commodity servers. Instead of running propietary hardware with high cost licenses DPDK allow a very modest server to process 24x the amount of packets compared to a single core network appliance. It use an source BSD license.

A brief and easy 4 minutes explanation of DPDK can be found on the following video:

Next just for fun experiment would be to build a virtualized DPDK appliance under openstack.
