Vercel Releases New Storage Offerings


Next.js and Vercel, the popular web development platform and hosting service, have recently announced the release of their new storage hosting products. As of May 8th, they have made available a document database, a Postgres SQL database, and a Redis database for developers to use. In the near future, they plan to release a binary blob database as well.

While I haven't had the opportunity to stress test or even test the capacity of their offerings yet, the UI and options are very similar to their frontend hosting, making it very simple for developers to use. The team at Next.js and Vercel have done a great job of handling most of the options for you, which is a great relief for developers who want to focus on building their applications rather than worrying about infrastructure.

It will be interesting to see how well their storage hosting products will scale. If their past success with their frontend hosting is any indication, they may become a strong competitor for other storage companies. The Next.js and Vercel platform has already gained a reputation for being fast and reliable, and their new storage hosting products could further bolster their reputation.

One of the standout features of their storage hosting products is the integration with Next.js and Vercel's other services. This integration means that developers can easily connect their backend database to their frontend hosting, streamlining the entire development process. Additionally, the ability to scale up or down on demand means that developers can easily adjust their storage needs to match the requirements of their applications.

They have included small amount of data transfers for users to try out. It seems that they are positioning these products in conjuction with their serveless functions to try and cover the full "hosting" package.

Overall, the release of Next.js and Vercel's storage hosting products is a welcome addition to their already impressive lineup of services. With their focus on simplicity and reliability, it will be exciting to see how well their storage hosting products perform in the coming months. As a developer, I look forward to exploring their new offerings and seeing how they can help me create even better web applications.
