AWS ALB with HTTP/2 and gRPC

New – Application Load Balancer Support for End-to-End HTTP/2 and gRPC | AWS News Blog

Thanks to its efficiency and support for numerous programming languages, gRPC is a popular choice for microservice integrations and client-server communications. gRPC is a high performance remote procedure call (RPC) framework using HTTP/2 for transport and Protocol Buffers to describe the interface.

To make it easier to use gRPC with your applications, Application Load Balancer (ALB) now supports HTTP/2 end-to-end, enabling you to publish gRPC services alongside non-gRPC services via a single load balancer.
