globally-distributed

Modern applications need a modern database

RDBMS systems designed in the 1970s did not scale. To solve this problem, NoSQL databases sacrificed correctness and flexibility, while NewSQL databases sacrificed operational simplicity and performance. Productivity suffered. If you’re building cloud-native applications that serve audiences in multiple regions, you need a database that is globally scalable, always fast, and reliable, yet productive for your teams, and free from operational complexity.

flexible-data

A modern data model

Fauna is an indexed document database that enables you to represent a variety of business data with ease. Document data, relational data, key value pairs and even graph data - Fauna has it covered.

global-acid

Built-in global replication

Fauna automatically distributes your data to global locations. As a result, it delivers predictable low latency read/write access no matter where your clients are running, as well as protection against data loss from infrastructure failures.

web-native

Secure by default

Zero operations at any scale

Our testing suggests that Fauna offers serializability, and, optionally, strict serializability, in only one cross-datacenter round-trip ... Calvin-based systems like Fauna could play an important future role in the distributed database landscape.
