Apollo vs Google App Engine: What are the differences?

Developers describe Apollo as "GraphQL server for Express, Connect, Hapi, Koa and more". Build a universal GraphQL API on top of your existing REST APIs, so you can ship new application features fast without waiting on backend changes. On the other hand, Google App Engine is detailed as "Build web applications on the same scalable systems that power Google applications". Google has a reputation for highly reliable, high performance infrastructure. With App Engine you can take advantage of the 10 years of knowledge Google has in running massively scalable, performance driven systems. App Engine applications are easy to build, easy to maintain, and easy to scale as your traffic and data storage needs grow.

Apollo and Google App Engine can be categorized as "Platform as a Service" tools.

"From the creators of Meteor" is the primary reason why developers consider Apollo over the competitors, whereas "Easy to deploy" was stated as the key factor in picking Google App Engine.

Apollo is an open source tool with 7.4K GitHub stars and 911 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Apollo's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Google App Engine has a broader approval, being mentioned in 473 company stacks & 329 developers stacks; compared to Apollo, which is listed in 123 company stacks and 121 developer stacks.

      With Cloud Endpoints you can create and deploy mobile backend in one hour or less. And it is free (until you need extra scale). I would not recommend to use Java - python is faster and has all new appengine features.

      Pros: everything is in one place: task queue, cron, backend instances for data processing, datastore, mapreduce. Cons: you cannot easily move your code from GAE. Even with special 3rd party services.

      PaaS for back-end components, including external data ingestion APIs, front-end web service APIs, hosting of static front-end application assets, back-end data processing pipeline microservices, APIs to storage infrastructure (Cloud SQL and Memcached), and data processing pipeline task queues and cron jobs. Task queue fan-out and auto-scaling of back-end microservice instances provide parallelism for high velocity data processing.

      checking a swap require a lot of cpu resource, roster normally come out same day of month, every month, at a particular time. Which make very high spike, our flag ship product, iSwap, with the capability looking swap possibility with 10000 other rosters base on user critieria, you need a cloud computing give you this magnitude of computing power. gae did it nicely, user friendly, easy to you, low cost.

      App engine fills in the gaps in the increasingly smaller case where it's necessary for us to run our own APIs.

      Apollo will be used to make requests to the GraphQL server and manage data handling/caching of responses.

      Very easy to make cloud computing of ML models , and use containers like Kubernetes.
