Protobuf & gRPC: Because milliseconds matter
In today’s fast-paced world, we expect things to be faster than they are right now and the same is the case with the IT industry. Millions of requests are being exchanged in a matter of seconds. Consider a time-critical scenario where an application needs to send a response to the user, delay in even milliseconds can cost a company fortune, and contrary to that even a decrease of a millisecond in response time can make fortunes to a company. In the world of microservices, most of them are using REST with JSON payload as a standard way of communicating with one another. But as the number of microservices increases in the infrastructure, the service graph becomes more complex, and as a result, there are pain points and limitations in using REST for communications. gRPC and Protobuf can be used to overcome these limitations. It is performance efficient and has proven to be faster.”
