Vercel is a cloud platform for static sites and Serverless Functions that fits perfectly with your workflow. It enables developers to host websites and web services that deploy instantly and scale automatically. It was originally known as ZEIT Now, but was renamed as Vercel in April 2020.
The main product offered by Vercel is the Vercel Platform, which focuses on providing an optimal workflow for developers to deploy their applications from development to production. The platform is well-known for its simplicity and speed. With a simple 'vercel' command from a terminal, developers can deploy their projects and get a live URL in return.
Vercel is particularly suitable for frontend frameworks like Next.js (also developed by Vercel), React, Angular, and Vue.js, as well as other similar projects. Vercel's integration with GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket allows for automatic deployments as soon as you push to your repository.
Besides, Vercel's Serverless Functions allow running server-side code to complement your frontend, without the need to maintain long-running server processes. This capability makes it ideal for building Jamstack applications.
Vercel also offers a global CDN to ensure fast delivery of your content, edge caching, automatic SSL, custom domains, and more. Overall, Vercel is designed to offer high performance, secure and scalable hosting solution for modern web applications.
