The serverless data API with built-in GraphQL
GraphQL sans Middleware
While GraphQL enables modern applications to connect with data sources in a standards-based fashion, connecting with SQL or NoSQL databases via GraphQL typically 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.
Fauna is a flexible, developer-friendly, transactional database available as a secure, cloud API with native GraphQL. Easy to use and easy to get started, Fauna eliminates all operational complexity from your backend, and lets you accelerate development.
