Posts under Cloud Load Balancers
Many applications rely on gRPC to connect services, but a number of modern load balancers still do not support HTTP/2, and, in turn, gRPC. In an earlier blog post, we showed a way to take advantage of the gRPC-Web protocol to circumvent this issue. That solution works well for non-client-streaming gRPC calls — with this new approach, we can support client/bidirectional-streams. In our earlier writing, we briefly mentioned that WebSockets may actually help us resolve our client/bidi-streaming problem.
