This guide explains how to connect Supabase to a PolyScale cache. Supabase is a Postgres compatible database that can be connected to PolyScale just like any other database. Read on for details of working with Supabase and PolyScale.
The video below illustrates how to get connected. Or you can read the steps below.
Step 0: Create a PolyScale account
If you do not already have a PolyScale account, you can create an account here. PolyScale offers a free tier and no credit card is required.
Step 1: Create your PolyScale Cache
1.1 Retrieve your Supabase Host
In your Supabase project, click on
Settings > Database and scroll down to the
Connection info section to copy your database
1.2 Configure your PolyScale Cache
- In your PolyScale account, click on the New Cache button
- Give the cache a Name
- Select PostgreSQL for the Type
- Enter the Host from Step 1.1 above
5432for the Port
- Click Create
Your cache is now created. PolyScale automatically checks to see that your database is accessible from all our global PoPs.

Using your PolyScale cache is simple -- instead of connecting to your Supabase database directly, you'll replace your original connection string with the PolyScale connection string in your application.
For example, if your original connection string was:
Your PolyScale connection string would be:
