Dear all,

We have recently been investigating various RPC technologies that would 
help us
query and transfer data between a database server containing image data, 
and a client.

For HBase, Thrift is typically used for this.  But our benchmarks show that 
current version of gRPC also performs very well for this task, and we are
tempted to use gRPC instead of Thrift, REST, or WebSocket.

Hence our question:
> Is streaming moderately sized chunks of binary data part of the vision 
for gRPC?  Can we 
count on the streaming of moderately sized chunks of binary data performing 
equally well in future releases of gRPC?

We would very much appreciate your views on this.

Thanks and best regards,

Jorn Baayen
