Hear why our customers love Fauna

With Fauna we are able to define a schema file and quickly create a database with all the relations we need with just a file upload. And as we grow and scale we don’t have to worry about performance or data correctness.

Insights.GG has 125,000 daily active users, with over one million downloads across Asia, North America, and Europe. PostgreSQL and CockroachDB couldn't scale automatically beyond one region, so we switched to Fauna which resulted in a 70% reduction in latency across all regions while reducing our operational costs.

Fauna's multi-tenancy and attribute-based security model enables us to provide each customer with their own individual, personalized, and encrypted database for storing their personal information like passwords, credit cards, and recovery emails.

Fauna is the data API of choice for our applications. The rich, versatile feature set helps us build business logic faster, and it is backed by an awesome user community and customer support that we love.

We chose Fauna because it offers us the flexibility of document models for getting started, but it has key relational database features like ACID transactions and stored procedure-like capabilities with user-defined functions (UDFs).

Will Kebbell, CTO/Architect, Connexin

Adopting Fauna and Compute@Edge early on has been instrumental in our ability to test and release features quickly. It allows us to maintain our data logic in a single place, and provides enough flexibility to adapt to different requirements across our application.

Isis T. Baulig, CTO, Climatiq

Fauna helps us deliver modern healthcare experiences, better and faster. With Fauna, we can focus on building robust, reliable data-driven applications, instead of having to manage databases. It is a game changer for modern business.
