Fauna unveils new data management capabilities
Fauna, the distributed document-relational database delivered as a cloud API, is offering new service capabilities to further accelerate its broad based enterprise adoption.
To meet the growing needs of enterprise development teams, Fauna announced the general availability of data import and the early access of automated backup and restore.
Data Import enables customers to easily import existing application or sample data using JSON and CSV files via Command Line Interface. Customers can import gigabytes of data and define their data types. The new functionality also supports “dry run functionality” to ensure data importation is successful.
For development teams requiring the flexibility to move business-critical databases across Region Groups as their applications and user base grows, Fauna has also introduced early access of the automated backup and restore feature.
Staying true to Fauna’s native serverless architecture, customers can now easily take snapshots of their database with no additional operational overhead. They can store those snapshots in the event that they need to recover a database or copy a database from one Fauna Region Group to another.
“Ensuring the success of development teams across the globe that choose Fauna is our highest priority as a company. Development teams everywhere are discovering the benefits of our distributed, document-relational database and serverless, API-first delivery model,” said Eric Berg, Fauna CEO. “Teams are building more sophisticated applications faster, with less code, and minimal operational overhead. Adding data import and backup and restore will help accelerate the trend we are seeing of more business-critical applications on Fauna and migrations to Fauna from other databases.”
In addition, following on to the announcement of the SOC 2 Type I milestone late last year, Fauna announced that they are now SOC 2 Type II certified. This is a further demonstration of a commitment to the security and privacy of the data that customers store in Fauna and is a result of completing the audit period on the rigorously-tested controls presented in Fauna’s SOC 2 Type I report, according to the vendor.
More than 3,700 active and engaged development teams from 102 countries have created over 90,000 databases to build and scale their applications and companies.
These development teams are discovering that Fauna’s unique distributed, document-relational database combined with its native serverless architecture provides their teams with a robust and productive operational data platform, according to the vendor.
