The first question I asked Fauna was the one they always get: does the world need another cloud database?
FaunaDB combines the scale and flexibility of NoSQL with the safety and data integrity of relational systems. The company refers to this as Relational NoSQL.
An organization that wants to power a transactional application using a single database that spans multiple data centers around the world without giving up ACIDity has few good options.
Startup process modeling services provider ShiftX uses FaunaDB as it looks to go global. Data consistency and speedy builds were factors in the choice.
After solving Twitter’s scaling woes, Evan Weaver and Matt Freels set their sights on creating a massively scalable NoSQL database that doesn’t sacrifice data consistency, security, or relational querying. The result, FaunaDB, is a modern and cloud-native solution for heavily distributed applications that breaks free of the traditional client-server oriented systems.
The report reveals that cloud adoption and security concerns are key considerations in choosing enterprise datastores.
Fauna, provider of the leading relational NoSQL database, announced today that social network and neighborhood conversations provider Nextdoor has chosen FaunaDB to meet increasing requirements for scalability, security and flexibility as the company experiences significant global growth.
