GraphQL is often used in combination with another popular Facebook's open source tool, React.

in this case by adding GraphQL integration to other API services.

AWS AppSync Including New GraphQL Features Is Now Generally Available

"Amazon released AWS AppSync, a GraphQL service with real-time data and offline programming capabilities, generally available. Amazon introduced AWS AppSync at last year's AWS re:Invent conference, and now the current GA release includes several new features that can accelerate development: a test and debug flow, Amazon CloudWatch integration, and support for Amazon CloudFormation."
