Couchbase Introduces Vector Search
March 04, 2024

Couchbase introduced vector search as a new feature in Couchbase Capella™ Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) and Couchbase Server to help businesses bring to market a new class of AI-powered adaptive applications that engage users in a hyper-personalized and contextualized way.

Couchbase will offer vector search optimized for running onsite, across clouds, to mobile and IoT devices at the edge, paving the way for organizations to run adaptive applications anywhere.

“Adding vector search to our platform is the next step in enabling our customers to build a new wave of adaptive applications, and our ability to bring vector search from cloud to edge is game-changing,” said Scott Anderson, SVP of product management and business operations at Couchbase. “Couchbase is seizing this moment, bringing together vector search and real-time data analysis on the same platform. Our approach provides customers a safe, fast and simplified database architecture that’s multipurpose, real time and ready for AI.”

Couchbase’s multipurpose capabilities delivers a simplified architecture to improve the accuracy of LLM results. Couchbase also makes it easier and faster for developers to build such applications with a single SQL++ query using the vector index, removing the need to use multiple indexes or products.

Couchbase’s recent announcement of its columnar service, together with vector search, provides customers with a unique approach that delivers cost-efficiency and reduced complexity. By consolidating workloads in one cloud database platform, Couchbase makes it easier for development teams to build trustworthy, adaptive applications that run wherever they wish. With vector search as a feature across all Couchbase products, customers gain:

- Similarity and hybrid search, combining text, vector, range and geospatial search capabilities in one.

- RAG to make AI-powered applications more accurate, safe and timely.

- Enhanced performance because all search patterns can be supported within a single index to lower response latency.

Couchbase is also extending its AI partner ecosystem with LangChain and LlamaIndex support to further boost developer productivity. Integration with LangChain enables a common API interface to converse with a broad library of LLMs. Similarly, Couchbase’s integration with LlamaIndex will provide developers with even more choices for LLMs when building adaptive applications. These ecosystem integrations will accelerate query prompt assembly, improve response validation and facilitate RAG applications.

“Retrieval has become the predominant way to combine data with LLMs,” said Harrison Chase, CEO and co-founder of LangChain. “Many LLM-driven applications demand user-specific data beyond the model’s training dataset, relying on robust databases to feed in supplementary data and context from different sources. Our integration with Couchbase provides customers another powerful database option for vector store so they can more easily build AI applications.”
