Introducing Vercel's New Storage

Vercel Storage

Data is an integral part of the web and as JavaScript and TypeScript frameworks make it easier than ever to render real-time data on the server, it's time to make databases a primary part of Vercel's Frontend Cloud.

Today Vercel announces a suite of serverless storage solutions now available powered by some of the best industry.end cloud infrastructure providers.

● Vercel KV: a simple and durable serverless Redis solution based on Upstash.

● Vercel Postgres: a serverless SQL database built for frontend and powered by Neon.

● Vercel Blob: a file upload and serving solution powered by Cloudflare R2.

Why Now?

Driven by the need for both performance and customization, frameworks are becoming server-first and edge-first. React's server components and the introduction of streaming infrastructure exemplify this shift.

These capabilities make it easier than ever to fetch data from a database or other data sources, within the server component itself.

At the same time, as the world moves away from monolithic architectures toward composable ones, there is no shortage of options for backends and databases. But for new projects, the choice can still be paralyzing.

In the spirit of being the end-to-end web development solution, Vercel is introducing solutions that are open, easy to use and scale as efficiently as frontends.

Vercel KV: The Long-Lasting Redis Database

A storage system such as Redis is one of the most common tools for managing things like rate limiting, session management or application health.

Vercel KV is a serverless, Redis-compatible, easy-to-use and highly durable database that allows you to create databases that can be written to and read from the Vercel Edge Network in the regions you specify and with little configuration.

Vercel, in partnership with Upstash, offers tools designed to adopt serverless, which persists in memory and on disk by default. This means that it can be used to persist state, without risk of losing data when a server crashes.

Vercel Postgres: Complex Data Simplified

For many developers PostgreSQL is the preferred way to handle relational data. Vercel, in partnership with Neon, introduces Vercel Postgres, the first serverless SQL database created for the Frontend Cloud.

With Vercel Postgres you get a fully managed, highly scalable and fault-tolerant database that delivers high performance and low latency for web applications.

Vercel Postgres is designed to work seamlessly with the Next.js App Router and Server components and other frameworks such as Nuxt and SvelteKit, making it easy to fetch data from the Postgres database to render dynamic content on the server at the speed of static.

Vercel Postgres can be used to query, insert, update or delete data directly within React server components, giving you powerful server-side data mutations and less client-side JavaScript.

Vercel Blob: Easy File Storage

Vercel Blob is a fast, simple and efficient solution for storing files in the cloud. It provides a simple yet powerful storage API, built entirely on web standards without the need to configure buckets or implement heavy SDKs.

Vercel Blob can store files such as images, PDF, CSV or other unstructured data and can be used for:

● Files that are normally stored in an external solution such as Amazon S3. With a Vercel hosted project you can easily access and manage these files.

● Files that are uploaded or generated programmatically at build time for viewing and downloading, such as avatars, screenshots, cover images and videos.

● Large files such as videos and audio to take advantage of the global network.

Vercel made this possible through existing integrations with database partners such as Supabase, PlanetScale and MongoDB.

Vercel storage makes it easy for developers to manage their frontend storage needs without worrying about infrastructure. Hobbyists and professional users can start using Vercel KV and Vercel Postgres today, building complete applications on Vercel.
