DescriptionNative multi-model DBMS for graph, document, key/value and search. All in one engine and accessible with one query language.FaunaDB provides a web-native interface, with support for GraphQL and custom business logic that integrates seamlessly with the rest of the serverless ecosystem. The underlying globally distributed storage and compute platform is fast, consistent, and reliable, with a modern security infrastructure.Widely used in-process key-value storeIn-memory data structure store, used as database, cache and message broker infoRedis focuses on performance so most of its design decisions prioritize high performance and very low latencies.Key-Value Store with special method for indexing infooptimized for high performance using a special indexing method
