Tencent Cloud has officially unveiled its AI Native vector database, used for large-scale model training, inference, and knowledge base replenishment scenarios, among applications. The pioneering database offers AI-based cloud lifecycle management across three layers-access, computation, and storage. Reports suggest that Tencent Cloud’s VectorDB can accommodate up to a billion-scale vector searches while maintaining latency at millisecond level. This presents an upgrade, yielding a tenfold increase in search scale compared to traditional standalone plug-in databases, while also enabling peak performance capabilities of millions of queries per second.
