gRPC is a cross-platform open source high performance remote procedure call framework. gRPC was initially created by Google, which used a single general-purpose RPC infrastructure called Stubby to connect the large number of microservices running within and across its data centers from about 2001.

For internal communication, tools like Dagster are leveraging gRPC for its robustness and efficiency. Ascend.io made an early bet on this technology, a decision highlighted in a notable Data Engineering podcast featuring Sean Knapp. Furthermore, the Apache Arrow Flight Protocol showcases another innovative use case, illustrating gRPC’s versatility and growing acceptance across various domains.
