gRPC provides services with high performance communication to use in many environments. Much of the recent work in gRPC has involved xDS (https://github.com/cncf/xds), a collection of control plane protocols that can configure data planes like Envoy and gRPC that is becoming popular to use in datacenter service meshes. The work is just past a turning point with the foundational features implemented in gRPC. In this session we'll discuss how all users, those that use xDS and those that don't, can benefit. We will cover newer features and how they achieve their goals using the cross-language xDS gRPC architecture.
