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:
  • Tick
    Query compilation:
    GraphQL queries are processed in a JIT compiler to create efficient queries that prevent N+1 problems
  • Tick
    Authz predicate push-down:
    Authorization policies are compiled into data access queries, avoiding multiple trips, and resulting in a massive performance boost in production
  • Tick
    JSON aggregations:
    Hasura avoids the cartesian product problem while fetching data from underlying systems by performing JSON aggregations in the upstream database itself
  • Tick
    How Hasura caching works for public and private (session aware) GraphQL queries
  • Tick
    Scale-up and scale-out:
    Get linear scalability, both vertically and horizontally, without any configuration
  • Tick
    How to setup your GraphQL benchmarking suite to benchmark any GraphQL server
