Back to overview
SurrealDB comes with a large number of in-built types, designed specifically for a scalable cloud database which operates directly from the web. To get started with the basic concepts of the data model view one of the sections below.
Boolean values, strings, numbers, UUIDs, arrays, objects, and durations
Datetimes and durations can be used to store and manipulate dates and times
Geolocation points and GeoJSON values can be used to store geometry data
Use record links to point to and link directly with records in other tables
Use futures to store values which should only be computed when retrieving data
SurrealDB makes it easy to convert values between different data types
