Fauna Inc., a developer of serverless databases, has released a query language inspired by TypeScript, as well as new web and local development capabilities and a declarative database schema.
According to the company, the language is designed to work with its document-relational database management system that is delivered via the cloud, saving developers time, enhancing teamwork, and delivering better performance.
Application programming interfaces are used to deliver the distributed database bearing Fauna’s name. The company claims that its serverless architecture and distributed storage and computing structure offer high levels of performance and security. It has raised more than USD 75 million. Customers who connect via an API are also spared from keeping up a database operations staff.
