Scale. Adapt. Evolve.

Adaptive operational database from the team that scaled Twitter

Cloud Enterprise Hybrid

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.

03 About FaunaDB

FaunaDB features increase flexibility without tradeoffs

  1. Adaptive scale

    Dynamically allocate resources to departments, products, and workloads based on business priorities. Elastically scale the underlying infrastructure.

  2. Global replication

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

  3. Flexible deployment

    Grow with your development lifecycle by supporting cloud, on-premises, multicloud and hybrid deployments.

  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.

04 Query Model

A query model to unify your data

FaunaDB is purpose-built to support data diversity, enabling rich, real-time end-user experiences at global scale.

In FaunaDB, traditional joins, constraints, indexes, and views are transparently combined with temporal structures. FaunaDB maintains an implicit history of every piece of data. Developers can use time-slice queries to easily build activity feeds, manage data retention, and sync changes with other systems.

FaunaDB’s unified query language bridges both worlds: it’s safe, predictable, and consistent. Insulating developers from infrastructure details, it is more flexible than NoSQL and more secure than SQL. FaunaDB executes all queries atomically, transactionally, and in parallel for maximum performance.

06 What can it do?

Any application, any workload

FaunaDB's architecture is designed for 21st-century application models, not business reporting or key-value paradigms from the 1980s. Leap ahead with scalable, flexible, managed access to your critical business data.

  1. Social

    Easily model complex polymorphic relationships across heterogeneous communities using multi-level graph queries and scalable distributed joins.

  2. Mobile

    Serve data directly to mobile clients with a secure, serverless architecture that bypasses intermediaries.

  3. Retail

    Boost sales with relevant associative real-time and historical data, while safely implementing purchases and other business transactions.

  4. SaaS

    Keep your business customers isolated, secure, and in compliance with native multi-tenancy.

  5. IoT

    Collect and query global datasets in real time from sensors embedded in devices, vehicles, or the environment.

  6. Games

    Build a great experience by putting data close to your users while eliminating the risk of 'catastrophic success' for games that go viral.
