Lantern — a PostgreSQL vector database for building AI applications

published on 2023/09/14

We have the most complete feature set of all the PostgreSQL vector database extensions.

Here’s what we support today:

  • Creating an AI application end to end without leaving your database (example)
  • Embedding generation for popular use cases (CLIP model, Hugging Face models, custom model)
  • Interoperability with pgvector's data type, so anyone using pgvector can switch to Lantern
  • Parallel index creation capabilities -- Support for creating the index outside of the database and inside another instance allows you to create an index without interrupting database workflows.
