Discussion on: Deploy your Next.js app to Heroku in 5 minutes

Any reason you prefer Heroku to Vercel here?

I find that Vercel is generally the best place to deploy Next.js unless you have other circumstances preventing it (custom server, mainly).

Simply a matter of habit. I have been using Heroku for years + I currently have a product hosted there (client, API server and Postgres database).

As a result, I haven't given Vercel a chance. Though Next.js adding Analytics to their new version is making me reconsider it.

Is there anything that you particularly like about Vercel?
