The serverless Jamstack database with built-in GraphQL
Fauna is a flexible, developer-friendly, database delivered to you as a secure, cloud API with native support for GraphQL.
GraphQL sans Middleware
While GraphQL enables Jamstack applications to connect with backend databases in a standards-based fashion, building GraphQL APIs on top of most SQL or NoSQL databases requires the use of additional gateways and middleware, and then managing that GraphQL mutations separately from the database. This adds complexity to your architecture, while compromising some of the native capabilities that are built into your database. If GraphQL is your choice for data access, you need a data backend that delivers GraphQL that is easy to get started with, and natively delivers standards-based access to your data.
Fauna for GraphQL
Fauna helps you simply code, reduce costs, and ship faster by delivering serverless GraphQL capabilities natively, without requiring developers to install or manage any additional infrastructure. Instead of provisioning and managing GraphQL servers and building your own backend, Fauna delivers a GraphQL API automatically, based on your schema, and lets focus on building your application.
Serverless GraphQL backend in minutes

Low latency global access
Because Fauna is globally distributed, it delivers predictable GraphQL access no matter where your clients are running to ensure a fast and consistent experience for all your users.
