Product Updates

  • Snowflake Integration: This month, we released the beta version of the Hasura GraphQL Data Connector for Snowflake! This connector lets you instantly generate read-only GraphQL and REST APIs to your Snowflake data. For more information, check out our blog post on the release.
  • Elastic Connection Pooling on Hasura Cloud: In Hasura Cloud, you can now configure the maximum size of the connection pool for your entire project. Apart from the general performance benefits of using pooled connections, this also ensures that your database remains reliable even during periods of massive load. Read more about this here.
  • Alloy DB: On December 13, 2022, Google Cloud announced the GA release of AlloyDB, with Hasura listed as one of the technology solution launch partners. This ongoing partnership ensures the best experience and support when you use Hasura with AlloyDB. Coming soon in v2.17, AlloyDB will appear as an option under the data sources dropdown in the Hasura UI. When using the AlloyDB data source, Hasura read-only queries leverage the bulk and concurrent read capabilities of AlloyDB, improving performance. For more information, see Google Cloud’s blog on partner solutions for AlloyDB and our guide to getting started with AlloyDB here.
  • Database Connection Latency Checks for Hasura Cloud: You can now proactively identify API performance issues by checking the connection latency of databases connected to your Hasura Cloud projects via the ‘Data Manager’ tab of the Hasura Cloud console. Elevated latency conditions generally occur when databases and projects are in geographically distant regions, so this information can be used to determine if you need to move your Hasura project to another region.

Tooling from the Community
Crudio automatically creates test data. It does virtually everything it takes to get a data platform up and running, so you can quickly prototype, build or demonstrate your system, product, or service. Built by Chris Nurse (vistalert#3519 on Discord), it recently got a bunch of new features, including the ability to create data streams, like IoT weather station data, health monitors, etc. Try it out and chat about the project with Chris on the Hasura Discord.

Monthly Recommendation

This month’s recommendation comes from Praveen Durairaju, a Developer Advocacy Content Manager at Hasura. He recommends StoptheMadness browser extension for Mac users. He likes this extension because it re-enables all the default functions on Mac. The browsing experience has improved multi-fold as there are no more annoying restrictions for contextual menus, enables auto-completion for input fields by default, and much more.

We’re hiring for some exciting roles at Hasura! If you or someone else is interested, please apply. A few of the key roles we are hiring for:

  • Cloud Infrastructure Engineer - Hasura Cloud
  • Senior Product Designer
  • Site Reliability Engineer (SRE) - Hasura Cloud
  • Senior Haskell Engineer

You can apply for these roles and others here.
