Powerful SQL

SingleStore SQL capabilities include metadata filtering, joins, aggregates, subqueries, window functions and other language features. Plus, reranking of semantic search results based on analytics queries and real-time data.

Hardware acceleration

SingleStore's built-in parallelization and Intel Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD)-based vector processing make it much more efficient to do the heavy lifting involved in processing vector data leading to fast, efficient similarity matching.

High performance, even for complex queries

Millisecond query performance that matches the performance of top data warehouses on popular analytical benchmarks, including those derived from TPC-H and TPC-DS.

choosing-a-data-platform-for-enterprise-generative-aiChoosing a data platform for enterprise generative AI

Vector databases offer little or no SQL support, aren’t built for production use cases and only support vectors. Text-search databases that do offer vector search may not be suitable for broader use cases, and NoSQL databases may offer very nascent vector search capabilities. When choosing a vector database for your generative AI stack, consider the following evaluation criteria:

Fast vector search
You need a database to easily and efficiently store, process and search vector embeddings.

Chart Network Icon

All data sources + typesYou need to be able to process all data —  not just vector data — including both transactional and analytical data owned by your enterprise.

Diagram Sankey Icon

Real time
Your data platform should ingest, process and do semantic and full-text search by combining multiple data types in real time — as conversations happen.

Stopwatch Icon

Fit for enterprise
The database should provide resource management, security controls, scalability, fault tolerance and efficient information retrieval through sophisticated query languages.
