You can use Apollo Server as:

  • The GraphQL server for a subgraph in a federated supergraph

Apollo Server provides:

  • Straightforward setup, so your client developers can start fetching data quickly
  • Incremental adoption, enabling 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 confidently run your graph in production
