DataStax delivers new JSON API to empower AI developers
DataStax has unveiled a new JSON API for the Astra DB vector database to empower the world's largest community of developers for AI apps.
The Astra DB vector database is designed for building real-world, production-level AI applications with real-time data.
With simultaneous search and update on distributed data and streaming workloads, Astra DB provides ultra-low latency and highly relevant results that eliminate redundancies. This creates more responsive, more accurate production generative AI applications that reduce hallucinations with real-time data updates and increase responsiveness with concurrent queries and updates.
Ed Anuff, Chief Product Officer, DataStax, says: "Traditionally, in order for developers to use Astra DB they had to have familiarity with CQL, a powerful but sometimes intimidating programming language."
"With Astra DB's new vector search capabilities, virtually any developer can now use Astra DB to build powerful generative AI applications using real-time data," says Anuff.
Carl Olofson, Research Vice President for Data Management Software, IDC, says: "There is increasing demand for databases to wear multiple hats in serving the enterprise, involving both broader operational capability and better analytics."
"Such enhancements include easy and practical support for vector search in support of a range of generative AI functions and incorporate those functions in both operational and analytical contexts."
"The flexibility of Cassandra lends itself to such enhancements, and this new JSON API for Astra DB is right in line with the emerging needs of DataStax developers," says Olofson.
DataStax is at the forefront of the generative AI revolution, with technologies that empower any organisation to deliver AI-powered applications that redefine business.
The company's marquee product is Astra DB, the industry's only vector database for building real-world, production-level AI applications using real-time data. Built on Apache Cassandra, the massively scalable open-source database proven by AI leaders, Astra DB is the data engine for responsive AI applications that deliver accurate results without artificial hallucinations.
Thousands of developers and hundreds of the world's leading enterprises, including Audi, Capital One, The Home Depot, Verizon, VerSe Innovation, and more, rely on DataStax technologies.
