Improvements for gRPC in .NET 6
gRPC is a language agnostic, high-performance Remote Procedure Call (RPC) framework.
gRPC services can be hosted on ASP.NET Core. Services have full integration with ASP.NET Core features such as logging, dependency injection (DI), authentication, and authorization.
Performance is a feature of .NET and gRPC, and .NET 6 is faster than ever. New performance-orientated features like client-side load balancing and HTTP/3 mean lower latency, higher throughput, and fewer servers. It is an opportunity to save money, reduce power use and build greener cloud-native apps.
The main benefits of gRPC are:
  • Modern, high-performance, lightweight RPC framework.
  • Contract-first API development, using Protocol Buffers by default, allowing for language agnostic implementations.
  • Tooling available for many languages to generate strongly-typed servers and clients.
  • Supports client, server, and bi-directional streaming calls.
  • Reduced network usage with Protobuf binary serialization.
These benefits make gRPC ideal for:
  • Lightweight microservices where efficiency is critical.
  • Polyglot systems where multiple languages are required for development.
  • Point-to-point real-time services that need to handle streaming requests or responses.
