The best serverless database

Fauna provides developers with a single endpoint to access a strongly consistent, multi-region database that optimally routes requests for low latency, has database replicas for redundancy against regional cloud failures and provides region choice to help meet data residency requirements.

When you’ve gone through the alpha and you’re starting to build a customer base, the last thing you want to worry about is administrating horizontally and vertically. With Fauna it can be all done via API calls.

Fauna is a "fire and forget" globally distributed database. We've tried them all and only Fauna was truly serverless.

A database made for your serverless architectures

zero-database-operations

Native serverless

Fauna was built with serverless architectures in mind from day one. Our strongly consistent, multi-region distributed database is available through an API call with usage-based pricing - enabling you to focus on building features and not capacity planning, maintaining, and scaling your database.

dist-cluster

Multi-region by default

Fauna is a multi-region database by default. It optimally routes requests to the closest region for low-latency, has database replicas across multiple regions for redundancy against regional cloud failures and provides region choice to help meet data residency requirements.

web-native

No connection pools

Fauna is accessed through an API call over HTTP and is stateless. You can call Fauna directly from your FaaS functions like AWS Lambda or Cloudflare Workers and not worry about cold starts or connection pools.

global-acid

Strongly consistent

Fauna was built to ensure data consistency under highly concurrent workloads, a necessity for modern application workloads. Features like Backup and Restore and Attribute-based access control (ABAC) give your teams fine-grain security controls to protect your data.
