01 Why Fauna?

FaunaDB is the first adaptive operational database—built from the ground up to scale digital business without compromising productivity or agility.

Modern applications require non-stop, real-time data at scale. They launch rapidly to a global customer base. Adoption is wildly unpredictable. Competition is fierce and only the fittest survive.

FaunaDB lets you leapfrog legacy, siloed data infrastructure to innovate more quickly and take advantage of new business opportunities.

    Seamlessly replicate datasets across datacenters to reduce latency, increase availability, manage data sovereignty, and deliver a consistent global user experience.

  3. Flexible deployment

    Use the FaunaDB Serverless Cloud with no provisioning and no minimum cost, or deploy FaunaDB Enterprise in your own datacenter, private cloud, or hybrid cloud.

  4. ACID consistency

    Ensure data accuracy and transaction correctness even at global scale.

  5. Developer productivity

    Use the application languages you already know to query complex graph, relational, document, temporal, and multi-model datasets.

  6. Native security

    Govern your data with built-in security capabilities, including isolation, identity management, row-level access control, transaction auditing, and encryption.
