Vedic deities are generally referred to as devatas.  These  Indra, for example is the king of all the devatas and rules the swargloka.

Agni and Surya (a planet deity) are also very important Gods of the Vedic era.  Yagna or Homa, or the ritual involving fire was a very important sacrament during the vedic period, during the homa, offerings were made to Agni.
