Built-In Vector Database

SingleStore delivers built-in similarity search on vectors to add memory for your gen AI apps.

The database market is saturated with speciality vector databases, which are bought and plugged into data architectures — only for users to quickly regret introducing yet another component into their application environment. Even more, specialty vector databases (SVDBs) introduce recurring problems like redundant data, excessive data movement, increasing labor and licensing costs and limited query power — and that’s just the start.

The good news? You don’t have to use an SVDB, but instead leverage vector similarity search that empowers you to build your AI-powered applications on a modern database that meets all of your performance requirements, not just one.

SingleStore offers powerful vector database functionality perfectly suited for AI-based applications, chatbots (like our very own SQrL), image recognition and more, eliminating the need for you to run a speciality vector database solely for your vector workloads. Unlike traditional vector databases, SingleStore stores vector data in relational tables alongside other types of data. Co-locating vector data with related data allows you to easily query extended metadata and other attributes of your vector data with the full power of SQL.

SingleStore is designed with a scale-out architecture, ensuring you have the capacity to support your growing data needs.

Deep query capabilities
Hybrid search based on vector nearness and descriptive properties is easy in SingleStore, because all the query capabilities of SQL are available.

Gauge Max Icon

Semantic search
Semantic search capabilities allow you to build applications based on LLMs that are capable of finding text that matches the meaning of your query, not just the words it contains.

Magnifying Glass Icon

Uncompromised performance
High-performance and scale-out capabilities allow SingleStore to keep up with even the most demanding database needs.

Arrows Maximize Icon

Nearest neighbor search
Since SingleStore supports joins, you can do set-based nearest-neighbor search in place of doing multiple queries to find desired results.
