Hasura GraphQL engine adds revolutionary new features to
SAN FRANCISCO, June 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – At HasuraCon ’21, Hasura, the data access infrastructure company, announced that it was the first to add the ability to access data between API layer-level databases with cross-database joins, one of the features most requested by users of Hasura GraphQL Engine. The company also announced schema sharing capabilities and git-based CI / CD workflows. These features are available in preview and will generally be available later this year.
Hasura GraphQL Engine, the open source project at the heart of all Hasura products, has experienced explosive growth since its launch in 2018. Downloads have grown from 2 million in 2019 to 100 million in 2020 to 250 million in less than six months this year. year. It has over 23,000 stars on Github and is trusted by companies like Philips Healthcare and United Health, as well as fast growing startups like Brave Care, Machine Metrics, MotoRefi and Pipe.
Organizations have valuable operational data that they need to access when building new applications and APIs, but it’s trapped in siled databases and cross-domain services. The move to microservices has further magnified the data access challenges for developers and architects and has been a major obstacle to the rapid delivery of APIs and products. Until now, accessing siled data has involved multiple layers of code and tools, including application servers, object relational mapping (ORM) tools, and custom embed code.
Hasura offers a new option that combines these multiple middleware layers into one. Users simply connect their data sources to Hasura and instantly get a production-ready API with built-in authorization and caching.
“Companies have made significant investments in databases and are looking for a better solution that allows inter-cloud and inter-database access to data that does not require data movement. Hasura has dramatically accelerated time to market for our users by automating access to existing data with the GraphQL API, ”said Tanmai Gopal, Co-Founder and CEO of Hasura. “With today’s announcement, we took an important step forward by providing our customers with the industry’s first ability to retrieve data from federated databases with a GraphQL layer without any code, allowing them to ‘save countless hours of development, operation and governance. “
With cross database joins, Hasura GraphQL Engine provides the ability to securely query databases with a single GraphQL API query. Users now have the ability to join data between different databases, as if they existed in the same database, without changing anything upstream.
“The ability to use a single API endpoint to access data from different databases at the API layer is revolutionary and will increase the data source that organizations can use,” said Ben Hizak, COO at Cherre, a real estate data and information company. “The new features of Hasura allow us to control permissions and rate limits in one place, regardless of the underlying database. This simplifies our authorization structure, reduces the workload and increases the speed at which we can control our security. “
Hasura GraphQL Engine also introduces schema sharing which bridges the gap for new and experienced users by allowing them to share and install sample permissions, relationships, and metadata. These installable schematics can accelerate the onboarding of new engineers and improve team-wide collaboration.
Hasura Cloud now has git-based CI / CD workflows so users can deploy local migrations from staging to production with a simple git push and get preview apps on every pull request to the git repository .
