Review of Prisma Cloud

Having taken a couple of services to production with self-hosted Prisma on AWS, I was waiting for it to officially release. I had a lucky chance to use this in beta for a few weeks and I can vouch for this product.

Prisma cloud adds a lot of features on top of the Prisma database API layer

like monitoring and data exploration that makes taking it to production even easier.

What I love about Prisma (the DB API layer) is that it is truly tech first with most of the core design decisions happening on Github, one can quickly understand where the whole project is going.

Another amazing thing about Prisma is that it programming language and technology agnostic, and unlike other platforms there is no vendor lock.

Lastly, a feature that I would want in Prisma cloud is a serverless application server (currently, we build it with technologies like graphql-yoga and host it with maybe zeit's now or on AWS) BUT I can totally see a future where Prisma cloud and become a headless product platform (not just a headless CMS) where you have the availability of various templates to start from and you could build your business on top of it without having to manage any infrastructure.

Review of Prisma Cloud

Prisma absolutely revolutionized the way we build products at MarketMuse. It has freed our teams from endless conversations and enabled us to just start building. Every new project I start will be using Prisma in the future and then leveraging the power of the Prisma Cloud platform to take all of the annoying work off my plate and let me focus on what my team and I do best.

Review of Prisma Cloud

I used Prisma cloud for 3 weeks and was amazed how good it is. I participated in beta and was satisfied how good support Graphcool provides for Prisma cloud. UI of prisma cloud is super easy to grasp even for not technical users. Everything is included and you don't need to take care of your prisma instance.

Review of Prisma Cloud

I've been using Prisma Cloud for about a month now (I had early access) and have been happy so far. Of course, the beta had some bugs but that's to be expected. Aside from those bugs, it worked great. It's really fast to get up and running with a GraphQL server and database, letting you get back to developing the product. For someone who isn't great at DevOps (like me), this is a great product choice because of those reasons above. I think the team has done an excellent job and excited to see new features come as time goes by

Review of Prisma Cloud

Started using when it first became opensourced on Github. I was working with a REST framework at that that. Having heard of Graphql a year before with never really giving it time to learn. I needed a solution with flexible zigzag relationship query as I like to call it and Graphql seem like the best answer so I decided to give it a shot. I started writing graphql server and query and while it was fine the resolver API was quite something to write. ou just have sweat that part out.

I needed to work fast and get result in weeks and I heard of Graphcool gave it a shot it was awesome, but I still felt something was missing in how API to database should be written and handled.

Then 3 days time I signed back into the Graphcool slack community and there was a huge confusion as to a new service called Prisma or a rename. I treated it with the "are we ever gonna stop trying to catch up with software trends". Then I gave it a go.

And I was blown away by how simple and straight to the point the resolver API was and the typescript support with Visual Studio Code IS was amazing. It changed my perception on how to handle CRUD hooks and events, not that it was flawed but improved. You think that was all and then Prisma Cloud made deploying prisma apps effortless with one simple command, with a modern admin UI

Right now I'm using Prisma Cloud for a client a contract project. called Unizonn it's a social media for students and academia and that fused with the power of Prisma Cloud. Prisma Cloud Rocks

Prisma Cloud is the easiest way to use Prisma in production without thinking about infrastructure

Review of Prisma Cloud

You have to build products with Prisma! In my last client project, I used Prisma to rewrite an API and storage layer of a legacy system and what can I say? It was a breathe of fresh air! Implementing such a layer is usual a very boring task and it is pretty hard to get it right. Not with Prisma! It was actually a fun task. Excellent tech, combined with a welcoming and very supportive team allowed me to decrease the overall development time.

My client is running on Kubernetes and I had to deploy my Prisma service on their cluster as well. Nevertheless, I also had the chance to test drive Prisma Cloud and I will definitely considering it for my next production app. Graphcool is developing high quality technology!

Congrats on the launch. You rock! 🚀
