Our Mission

The next wave of cloud computing offers developers increasingly higher levels of abstraction in the form of serverless offerings. These offerings remove the burden of operational complexity from developers by exposing themselves as an API. Serverless computing is leading the way for new “client-serverless” applications that are written as rich, browser-native clients built using serverless APIs. One of the last areas of the cloud infrastructure to go truly serverless has been the operational database. In order to unlock the potential of developers everywhere to create or transform their organizations digitally, our mission is:

To make working with operational data productive, scalable and secure for every software development team.

About Fauna

Our distributed relational database with a document data model is delivered globally as a cloud API. An intuitive database language inspired by TypeScript supports relational features such as foreign keys, views, and joins and combines the ability to express queries and functional business logic in transactions that are strongly consistent across multiple regions. Never worry about database provisioning, scaling, sharding, or replication again.
