Fauna Inc

Fauna Inc is a data application programming interface for applications.

Fauna is a data application programming interface (API) for applications that facilitates clients with serverless backends.

FaunaDB offers a web-native GraphQL API that is accessible directly from a browser, mobile client, or other serverless function. The web-native GraphQL interface combines support for custom business logic and integration with the serverless ecosystem, enabling developers to simplify code and ship faster.

The company's goal is to provide a powerful “data API” for serverless apps, so that developers don’t even need to touch a database system.
