White Paper

Fauna: Architectural overview

Key takeaways:

How Fauna implements a uniquely flexible, document-relational data model that provides strictly serialized, multi-region distributed transactions with no data consistency compromises

How Fauna’s architectural layers enable distributed transactions without requiring global clock synchronization

How rigorously-tested technologies enable a true serverless database that scales linearly for both reads and writes with no points of failure in or across zones or regions

How Fauna can handle bursts of millions of requests per minute and can quickly scale to handle orders of magnitude of additional traffic — with all the underlying operational complexity abstracted from application developers
