Balance global user experience and data sovereignty in your database

Fauna is a distributed, serverless database that enables developers to build low-latency global applications that are data compliant. Fauna removes the operational overhead that comes with scaling applications across multiple regions and the application logic developers implement to route data.

Build a resilient, low-latency global app with Fauna

Consistent global user experience

Fauna databases can be created in a single region like US or EU or be distributed across multiple regions by default. Fauna’s Intelligent Routing routes requests to the closest database replica - ensuring a consistent latency experience for users around the globe.

Data compliant by default

Fauna’s Region Groups give users the ability to choose which region they want their databases to live. For example, the EU public region group ensures that your databases are GDPR compliant. Virtual Private Fauna allows users to choose the exact geo-footprint down to the country the database lives.

Increase development velocity

Fauna is a native serverless database that takes care of provisioning, scaling, sharding, replication, correctness, and more. For use cases where consistency, distribution, and scalability are top-level considerations, Fauna delivers without the operational burden associated with a managed service offering.

Built-in strong consistency

Fauna’s architecture was inspired by the Calvin paper. It is distributed with replicas and guarantees strict serializability, with low read, and write latency.

Redundancy against regional failures

Fauna is distributed across multiple cloud regions by default. With Intelligent Routing, Fauna provides redundancy against regional failures by running custom, application-specific routing algorithms to ensure requests are served.

Reduce application complexity

Fauna’s built-in routing and strong consistency enable you to access your database without writing bloated application logic. Fauna’s compute layer also enables you to execute complex business logic as ACID transactions in single round-trip calls.

Scale globally, no operations

Fauna provides an inherently global, cloud-first approach to address global latency and data sovereignty challenges.

For use cases where consistency, distribution, and scalability are top-level considerations, Fauna delivers requisite performance criteria without the operational burden that often comes with a managed service offering. This includes transactionality in a distributed system and unfolding downstream effects of duplicating data to ensure performance.

Customer loved, industry validated

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.
