Protocol Buffers

Protocol Buffers, or Protobuf for short, refers to a method of interchanging data. Protobuf, developed by Google, acts as an interface exchange standard, enabling cloud services to communicate with one another. Protobuf is used to serialize structured data, and is important within gRPC, an open-source framework for microservices communication.
