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

Fauna instantly generates GraphQL mutations for you automatically -- all you have to do is upload your schema. Furthermore, all GraphQL requests in Fauna are transactional by default! Check out this article to get started!

Augment GraphQL with Powerful Business Logic

To further enhance your GraphQL experience, Fauna lets you seamlessly integrate powerful custom resolvers for additional expressiveness -- easily encapsulate business logic, simplify your code, and reduce the round trips for data access.

Secure by default

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

Supports your JavaScript framework of choice

No matter which development stack you’re using, or where you’re deploying your app, Fauna provides easy to use GraphQL access to your data. Check out some of the Javascript frameworks we support. Fauna also works seamlessly with Jamstack providers like Netlify, Vercel and Cloudflare.

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.

Zero operations at any scale

Say goodbye to data sharding, capacity provisioning, and database administration tasks typically associated with GraphQL middleware as well legacy databases. Fauna scales transparently and takes care of all the data operations.

What's the buzz about?

Our customers and partners love FaunaDB because it is productive, modern, uncompromising and operations-free.

Fauna lets us focus on product development instead of building and resharding our own database layer. Fauna is absolutely spot on–it’s a great hybrid combination of database and GraphQL API that just makes sense for the cloud.
