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 and cloud services sacrificed operational simplicity and performance. Productivity suffered.

Delivered as a Global API, Fauna is a modern relational data layer that supports relational querying, serializable transactions, database normalization, foreign keys, indexes, constraints, stored procedures, and other typical relational features. Additionally, Fauna offers innovative capabilities such as data temporality, streaming, and multi-tenancy, combined with schema flexibility and built-in support for GraphQL.

If you like relational databases, especially their transactional properties and battle-hardened reliability, but wish to minimize your operational burden, gain flexibility, and free yourself from routine tasks such as data partitioning, replication, redundancy, etc. you may enjoy Fauna even more!

Simplify code, reduce costs, and ship faster

Fauna combines the operational integrity and relational modeling of RDBMS with a flexible interface and architecture that fits better with modern application development. Moreover, its serverless approach completely eliminates the provisioning, planning and administrative tasks routine with traditional relational database services.

flexible-data

Relational yet flexible

Fauna supports database normalization, foreign keys, indexes, constraints, stored procedures, and other typical relational database features yet is schema flexible, enabling a simpler agile workflow. 

global-acid

100% ACID

Built on a ground-greaking distributed data and compute engine, Fauna is a transactional database with strictly serializable transaction isolation. With Fauna, all your reads and writes are transactional, yet fast. 

query

Powerful queries with business logic

Write relational queries (including joins), or combine with document queries, graph traversals, or basic search! Similar to stored procedures, Fauna lets you create UDFs that encapsulate powerful business logic easily accessible from code via an API call.

multi-cloud

Handsfree HA & global replication

Fauna automatically distributes data to multi-region 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

With built-in authorization and a fine-grained security framework that integrates easily with 3rd party authentication services such as Auth0, Fauna makes it simple to implement your data security rules.  

zero-database-operations

Zero operations at any scale

Say goodbye to data sharding, capacity provisioning, and database administration tasks typically associated with traditional databases and cloud services (DBaaS). Fauna scales transparently and takes care of all the data operations for you.
