Content delivery services and AppOps at the edge provider, Limelight Networks introduced GraphQL functionality for its Layer0 by Limelight web application CDN. GraphQL enables microservices-based websites and allows developers to make their API layer much faster and easier to manage. The solution also supports hosting the GraphQL server in a serverless environment.
GraphQL parsing and support
Layer0 offers everything development teams need to implement a headless or Jamstack architecture including hosting, serverless, observability, RUM, and CI/CD integration. Development teams can also use Layer0 to cache their GraphQL APIs, run their GraphQL server in a serverless environment, or host their entire headless application. Ajay Kapur, Chief Technology Officer of Limelight said,
« We’re proud to leapfrog the industry by delivering native GraphQL support. Web builders ship up to twice as often because Layer0 makes edge compute and caching one small part of a more holistic ‘application centric’ workflow. Business teams love their Layer0-powered site because they load in literally the blink of an eye via predictive prefetching, the industry’s fastest edge compute, and suite of RUM and observability tools. »
