Getting started

This section describes everything you need to get started using FaunaDB:

  • FaunaDB Shell lets you interact with FaunaDB, our official, multi-tenant, multi-cloud, database cluster that is free for lightweight use, with plans covering small- to large-company use.

  • The FaunaDB GraphQL API makes it easy to perform queries and mutations against your schema. GraphQL hides most of the complexity of database interaction so that you can focus on effective use of your data.

  • Are you an SQL user and want to see how to write common queries in FQL? Check out FQL for SQL users.
