Announcing Vercel Integration v2

Andreas ThomasAndreas ThomasSoftware Engineer @Upstash

Over 18 months ago we have created the Vercel - Upstash integration, allowing developers to easily create Redis databases and add their connection secrets as environment variables in Vercel. A lot has changed since then and we have released 2 new products:

However it was not possible to use these in the Vercel integration. Until now...

Vercel + Upstash v2

In the past weeks we have rewritten large parts of the existing integration to make it possible to integrate Kafka and QStash as well as creating new databases and clusters on demand.

You can now select a Redis database and/or Kafka cluster as well as toggle QStash for your projects.

If you don't have a database or cluster yet, the dropdown allows you to create a new one on the fly.

The integration will set all required environment variables in your Vercel project to get you up and running as fast as possible.


  1. Create an account on upstash.com.
  2. Head over to the integration page on Vercel and click Add Integration.
  3. Select your resources and click Create at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Redeploy your project to make the environment variables take effect.

For a more in-depth guide on how to use the integration, please visit our documentation.
