“We see a significant uptick in the number of global enterprises transitioning from cloud to serverless computing technologies,” said Tyson Clark, GV general partner. “This opens the door for companies like Vercel to transform the frontend development market. Vercel’s collaborative approach to interactive web applications is well-positioned to become the top choice for developing websites over the next decade.”
Vercel provides a software development workflow and deployment platform that redefines how developers work, how they collaborate with lines of business and, most importantly, how their sites perform. The leading advocate and enabler of frontend developer experience and the creator of Next.js, the first hybrid framework to succeed at scale, Vercel uniquely satisfies the needs of both static and dynamic websites and applications. Hybrid applications give users all the capabilities and benefits of a static generator, while providing the flexibility of server-side rendering or streaming server-side rendering for additional personalization within the same application.
