About Fauna

Fauna is a distributed relational database with a document data model that is delivered as a cloud API. An intuitive new 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, all with no operations required.

Fauna integrates seamlessly with apps built and hosted on Netlfiy. This enables you to build fast, responsive web experiences. Because Fauna is accessed as an API, apps can access Fauna directly from the browser, mobile clients, and Netlify functions via popular JavaScript frameworks and programming environments.

Use Cases
