The Effortless Backend for Jamstack
Applications with GraphQL
FaunaDB is a fully-featured database delivered as an API, that fits frictionlessly into your Jamstack frameworks of choice.
Jamstack needs a serverless database
Jamstack applications require a secure and operations-free database accessible from the browser. But monolithic architectures such as SQL and legacy NoSQL databases were built to sit behind an app server, so they are not directly accessible to Jamstack clients.
FaunaDB for Jamstack
FaunaDB helps you simply code, reduce costs, and ship faster, by delivering powerful database capabilities as a data API with support for GraphQL and custom business logic.... Thus, instead of provisioning database resources, managing nodes, and building your own backend you can focus your energy on building your Jamstack application.
