Apollo Server provides:

  • Straightforward setup, so your client developers can start fetching data quickly
  • Incremental adoption, allowing you to add features as they're needed
  • Universal compatibility with any data source, any build tool, and any GraphQL client
  • Production readiness, enabling you to ship features faster
