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 leave legacy infrastructure and data siloes behind, freeing you to innovate rapidly and take advantage of new business opportunities.

04 About FaunaDB

FaunaDB increases flexibility

  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 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.

06 What can it do?

Any application, any workload

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

  1. Social

    Model complex relationships with multi-level graph queries and scalable distributed joins.

  2. Mobile

    Skip the application server and access data directly from mobile clients with a secure, serverless architecture.

  3. SaaS

    Keep your customers isolated, secure, and compliant with built-in multitenancy.

  4. IoT

    Collect vast quantities of data in real time from embedded sensors in electronics, vehicles, or the environment.

  5. Financial

    Take advantage of ACID consistency to deliver global services without compromising correctness.

  6. Games

    Deliver a low-latency user experience and eliminate scalability risk when your game goes viral.
