Contentful APIs in a server-rendered (SSR) Next.js website (SSG to SSR)


We’re considering using Next.js + Contentful content APIs for a website.

Previously we were considering using a static site generation method (Gatsby.js/Next.js).

Now, we are looking at a server rendered website (SSR)

Can you please share if there is any guidance about the usage of Contentful APIs in a server rendered site?

In an SSG like Gatsby.js, the API data is fetched and pulled in at build time.

In a server rendered Next.js site, the data is fetched each client request from the server.

Can anyone advise me: How do we handle the multiple calls to the Contentful APIs (previously just one each build).

Do we now need to explore alternative caching options?

Thank you
