  Description     : flexible and efficient mechanism for serializing structured data

Protocol buffers are a flexible, efficient, automated mechanism for
serializing structured data – similar to XML, but smaller, faster, and
simpler. You define how you want your data to be structured once, then
you can use special generated source code to easily write and read your
structured data to and from a variety of data streams and using a
variety of languages. You can even update your data structure without
breaking deployed programs that are compiled against the "old" format. 
Google uses Protocol Buffers for almost all of its internal RPC
protocols and file formats.
