What is Milvus?

milvus-logo

Milvus is an open-source vector database built to power embedding similarity search and AI applications. Milvus makes unstructured data search more accessible, and provides a consistent user experience regardless of the deployment environment.

Milvus 2.0 is a cloud-native vector database with storage and computation separated by design. All components in this refactored version of Milvus are stateless to enhance elasticity and flexibility. For more architecture details, see Milvus Architecture Overview.

Milvus was released under the open-source Apache License 2.0 in October 2019. It is currently a graduate project under LF AI & Data Foundation.

Key features

Millisecond search on trillion vector datasets Average latency measured in milliseconds on trillion vector datasets.

Simplified unstructured data management
  • Rich APIs designed for data science workflows.
  • Consistent user experience across laptop, local cluster, and cloud.
  • Embed real-time search and analytics into virtually any application.
  • Reliable, always on vector database Milvus’ built-in replication and failover/failback features ensure data and applications can maintain business continuity in the event of a disruption.

    Highly scalable and elastic Component-level scalability makes it possible to scale up and down on demand. Milvus can autoscale at a component level according to the load type, making resource scheduling much more efficient.

    Hybrid search In addition to vectors, Milvus supports data types such as Boolean, integers, floating-point numbers, and more. A collection in Milvus can hold multiple fields for accommodating different data features or properties. Milvus pairs scalar filtering with powerful vector similarity search to offer a modern, flexible platform for analyzing unstructured data. Check https://github.com/milvus-io/milvus/wiki/Hybrid-Search for examples and boolean expression rules.

    Unified Lambda structure Milvus combines stream and batch processing for data storage to balance timeliness and efficiency. Its unified interface makes vector similarity search a breeze.

    Community supported, industry recognized With over 1,000 enterprise users, 27,000+ stars on GitHub, and an active open-source community, you’re not alone when you use Milvus. As a graduate project under the LF AI & Data Foundation, Milvus has institutional support.

    $ make
    

    For the full story, see developer's documentation.

    IMPORTANT The master branch is for the development of Milvus v2.0. On March 9th, 2021, we released Milvus v1.0, the first stable version of Milvus with long-term support. To use Milvus v1.0, switch to branch 1.0.

    Milvus 2.0 vs. 1.x: Cloud-native, distributed architecture, highly scalable, and more

    See Milvus 2.0 vs. 1.x for more information.

    Real world demos

    Image search Chatbots Chemical structure search

    Image Search

    Images made searchable. Instantaneously return the most similar images from a massive database.

    Chatbots

    Interactive digital customer service that saves users time and businesses money.

    Chemical Structure Search

    Blazing fast similarity search, substructure search, or superstructure search for a specified molecule.

    Bootcamps

    Milvus bootcamp is designed to expose users to both the simplicity and depth of the vector database. Discover how to run benchmark tests as well as build similarity search applications spanning chatbots, recommendation systems, reverse image search, molecular search, and much more.
