What is the current most popular communication framework for distributed system?

Hi there,

Recently I have been trying to resolve the issue on communication of various topics across multiple machines so that the distributed system can work as a whole without low-latency or delay while passing the messages back and forth.

I already learned about using topic_tools, especially nodelets, relays and throttles to optimize the transmission efficiency under bandwidth constraints, and also came across framework such as LCM to deal with transmission issue. But as for the latter one, I only know it is supported only for ROS Fuerte but currently I am working with Indigo and that makes me wonder, if there is some similar libraries out there that offer the feature to transfer messages more efficient and is widely accepted by the (ROS) robotics community as we speak (2016)?

Once again, thank you in advance!
