 > The RPC framework used in Baidu before 2014 was developed at 2008 and 
limited in protocols and performance, and there were also serveral 
implementations focused on their own scenarios from Baidu's different 
BU. As an infrastructural team in Baidu, we tried to build a new 
framework to unify all RPC scenarios inside. The framework was named 
"baidu-rpc" internally the early versions were adopted and online at 
late 2014. The framework was rapidly iterated at 2015-2017, and 
thousands kinds of services and almost all core services adopted it. And 
in 2017, we opensourced it as "brpc" and hope to get more adoptions and 
contributions from outside. At the time of opensourcing, there're more 
than 1 million instances inside Baidu using baidu-rpc (not counting 
clients).>
