Data access infrastructure company Hasura has announced its new service, Hasura Cloud. The GraphQL service is said to provide instant and secure access to data across hybrid- and multi-cloud environments with a unified GraphQL API.
Based on Hasura’s enterprise-grade Hasura Pro product, Hasura Cloud brings new cloud-specific functionality such as dynamic data caching, auto-scaling, global availability and consumption-based pricing.
As the company puts it, Hasura Cloud helps organizations create data-driven applications without costly investments in infrastructure or operational management.
With Hasura Cloud and its data federation capabilities, organizations can bridge new and old datasets regardless of location, helping developers quickly build new applications without needing to migrate large legacy datasets or getting locked into a specific vendor’s data platform.
This flexibility helps organizations to move quickly as they adapt to the rapidly changing world around them without taking on huge operational complexity. Instead, they can react quickly and align the cost of operations with the value provided by these new applications.
Hasura Cloud uses GraphQL, an open-source data query and manipulation specification released in 2015 by Facebook, to automatically create programming interfaces (APIs) that developers use to access and manipulate data in modern applications.
