FaunaDB Serverless Cloud

A global, multi-cloud database that simply scales up and down with your serverless applications.

01 Why FaunaDB Serverless Cloud?

It's the only cloud database built from the ground-up to meet the needs of serverless apps. If you don't manage servers, you shouldn't manage databases either. No provisioning, utility pricing, and built-in security make FaunaDB Serverless Cloud the ideal option for teams building serverless applications.

02 Features

  1. Developer-friendly data model

    Serverless apps and functions run the gamut from mobile apps, media processing, log processing, chatbots, to big data. FaunaDB supports relational queries and constraints, along with traditional database features that let your apps scale.

  2. Supports multiple interactions

    FaunaDB Serverless Cloud is friendly to apps that need any data model. It’s perfect for NoSQL and JSON-based document-style development. Schema enforcement is optional. It also natively supports graph use cases at massive scale, and makes it easy to build rich change feeds.

  3. Zero provisioning

    With FaunaDB Serverless Cloud, there’s zero operational overhead. You never have to provision nodes, and you’ll never get burned by inaccurate capacity planning. Just download a driver, create a database through the FaunaDB dashboard, and start writing apps that launch at global scale.

  4. Elastic scale

    FaunaDB scales up and down in response to traffic flows. You never need to capacity plan, manually add nodes, or change configurations. There’s also no need to for you to monitor performance stats, and you won’t have to worry about missing alerts. FaunaDB handles it all, so you can focus on building great apps.

  5. Serverless security

    FaunaDB’s Serverless Cloud's fine-grained, row-level security model enables mobile apps and IoT devices to connect directly to the database—no middleware needed. This makes it ideal for working with light-weight FaaS and event-driven architectures, where authentication boilerplate is cumbersome.

  6. ACID consistency

    Strong consistency, even for globally replicated datasets, is a critical feature for building simple and reliable apps. Without it, you need to implement consistency checks in your apps. It enables you to develop business critical features with the confidence that data accuracy and ordered transactions provide.

  7. Geographical replication

    FaunaDB Serverless Cloud is deployed in geographical regions around the world, providing low-latency, real-time experiences for your global users. Your data is automatically replicated to all datacenters, providing business continuity and disaster recovery when outages occur in specific regions.

  8. Multi-cloud

    FaunaDB Serverless Cloud seamlessly replicates your data across datacenters running on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and, soon, Microsoft Azure. The result is no infrastructure lock-in.

03 Testimonial

The trend toward serverless has been coming for a long time. I've focused my career on lowering the barrier to entry for writing scalable apps. Serverless compute is only half the story. With a serverless database, application development and maintenance becomes so easy, even beginners can write apps that change the world.
