The Brief

What you will learn

Hasura’s GraphQL APIs are typically 2x-10x faster than hand rolled APIs (GraphQL or REST).

In this webinar, we’ll discuss how Hasura optimizes GraphQL API performance, how it scales and also walk you through how to easily set up benchmarks for your own workloads (including subscriptions).

The webinar will cover:

Query compilation

GraphQL queries are processed in a JIT compiler to create efficient queries that prevent N+1 problems

Authz predicate push-down

Authorization policies are compiled into data access queries, avoiding multiple trips, and resulting in a massive performance boost in production

JSON aggregations

Hasura avoids the cartesian product problem while fetching data from underlying systems by performing JSON aggregations in the upstream database itself


How Hasura caching works for public and private (session aware) GraphQL queries

Scale-up and scale-out

Get linear scalability, both vertically and horizontally, without any configuration


How to setup your GraphQL benchmarking suite to benchmark any GraphQL server

If you’re getting started with Hasura and GraphQL performance, the technical principles in this webinar will be a great starting point.
