Hasura Introduces GraphQL Support for MySQL and SQL Server

Hasura, the data access infrastructure company, is adding GraphQL support for MySQL and early access support for SQL Server to its existing support for PostgreSQL, enabling the company to support three of the most popular database technologies.

“Data lives in lots of places, and in many different databases. We want our users to be able to access that data instantly with Hasura’s secure, scalable data access infrastructure so adding support for MySQL and SQL Server was our obvious next step. It opens up huge potential for all the developers who need to access the vast amounts of data that lives in MySQL and SQL Server today. Now they can enjoy instant data access with a modern GraphQL API, and Hasura’s built-in security, governance, and scalability features will get their applications into production quickly and safely,” said Hasura co-founder and CEO Tanmai Gopal.

Rather than trying to use outdated approaches to overcome this problem like consolidating fast-moving operational data into static data warehouses or datalakes, Hasura provides a new option: simply connect applications by federating access to where the data lives, using a modern API-based approach that includes security, governance, and scalability as standard features.

With support for MySQL, SQL Server, and PostgreSQL, using Hasura means developers aren’t forced to migrate data to make it accessible from their applications.

Hasura’s ability to auto-generate modern, GraphQL-based APIs and its built-in security, governance, and scalability features enable developers to rapidly build applications that connect to data without waiting for costly, time-consuming infrastructure projects to finish building the pieces they need.

In addition to this news, the company is also receiving $25 million in series B funding, bringing the total raised to $36.5 million.

The round was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners with participation from existing investors Vertex Ventures US, Nexus Venture Partners, Strive VC, and SAP.iO Fund and new angel investors including John Thomspon, the current chairman of Microsoft.

Hasura is using the funding to accelerate its hiring and investment in its open source and commercial product development to support its millions of users.
