Google’s microservices protocol joins Kubernetes in cloud foundation

Google’s gRPC protocol was originally developed to speed up data transfer between microservices, proving faster and more efficient than passing around data encoded in JSON.

Yesterday the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), which oversees the development of Kubernetes, announced it would also become the home for gRPC’s development.

Under the CNCF, gRPC will be broadly supported to provide a consistent, high-performance mechanism for wiring them together the polyphony of technologies used in microservices—the “multiple languages, frameworks, technologies, as well as multiple first- and third-party services”, as the CNCF said.
