FaunaDB is a serverless cloud database that offers global access to data via APIs such as GraphQL without sacrificing data consistency.
FaunaDB is a rare example of a temporal database. More generally, FaunaDB is a transactional/operational database that provides ACID guarantees. The database implements the Calvin protocol, which provides a transaction scheduling and data replication layer that uses a deterministic ordering guarantee to significantly reduce the normally prohibitive contention costs associated with distributed transactions.
