Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be technical to use Vertex?

No! If you've ever used a spreadsheet, you'll be able to figure it out quickly.

Can I use Vertex as a no-code backend?

100%. Vertex creates an out-of-the-box API on top of your database.

How is Vertex different from Airtable/Supabase/etc?

Check out our list of production comparisons for detailed info on how we're different.

Where can I find a complete list of integrations?

Can I use Vertex with an existing Postgres database?


What are the underlying specs of the databases that Vertex creates for me?

Currently we create a fresh database for you on a managed Postgres provider (eg AWS, GCP, Azure, etc). Databases are hosted on shared servers with other users. You'll get access via a Postgres user that has restricted access to your database with a connection limit of 10-20. While we're in private beta, the details of our managed databases such as the provider and connection limit are subject to change. If you need a higher connection limit or root access, you can self-host a Postgres database while still using Vertex.

Can Vertex automatically back up my database?

Vertex does not back up your database on its own but it gives you raw Postres database access enabling you to set up your own automated database backups. If you're interested in having Vertex do this out of the box, please let us know.

How much data can Vertex handle?

Our product is built as an interface on top of Postgres which can handle a ton of data - far, far more than any spreadsheet or no-code database that we know of.

How can I migrate off of Vertex in the future?

Because your data is a Postgres database, you'll be able to migrate directly to any database provider that you want - for example, AWS, Azure, or Digital Ocean, whenever you want.
