AWS AppSync is a managed service that uses GraphQL. Application development is simplified with a flexible API that securely accesses, manipulates, and combines data from one or more data sources.

With AppSync, scalable applications can be built:

  • With real-time updates.
  • On a range of data sources (such as NoSQL data stores, relational databases, HTTP APIs).
  • For custom data sources with AWS Lambda.

For mobile and web apps, AppSync provides:

  • Local data access when devices go offline.
  • Data synchronization with customizable conflict resolution when devices are back online.

Use the AWS public cloud integration to discover and collect metrics against the AWS service.
