DataStax has announced the general availability of its Data API, a one-stop API for GenAI. DataStax also announced an updated developer experience for Astra DB, DataStax's NoSQL cloud database that is built on Apache Cassandra.
JVector is a pure Java embedded vector search engine, used by DataStax Astra DB. The JVector developers say it uses state of the art graph algorithms inspired by DiskANN and related research that offer high recall and low latency. The use of JVector provides higher relevance, throughput and volume compared to other vector databases using HNSW (Hierarchical Navigable Small World), according to the DataStax team.
DataStax says the new service also introduces an intuitive dashboard, efficient data loading and exploration tools, and seamless integration with leading AI and machine learning (ML) frameworks.
The API also provides a single stack for Retrieval Augmented Generation to make answers more accurate. It gives users the ability to query data while also indexing new data updates.
The Data API provides integrations with LangChain, OpenAI, Vercel, GCP Vertex, AWS, Azure, Amazon Bedrock and GitHub Copilot. The DataStax team says it means any developer can now support advanced RAG techniques such as FLARE and ReAct that must synthesize multiple responses.
