Description

This talk will give an overview of the XRootD Scalable Service Interface (SSI), which provides an asynchronous request-response framework with an emphasis on efficient data transfers. This will include a case study explaining how we used SSI and Google Protocol Buffers to develop the API between EOS and the CERN Tape Archive (CTA). The SSI-Protobuf bindings are available as a generic framework which can be used by other projects which need an efficient client-server protocol stack.
