Vector Databases for your Use Cases
In the ever-evolving landscape of machine learning and data science, the importance of efficient data management cannot be overstated. Vector databases, which specialize in handling complex data structures, have emerged as a cornerstone for various machine learning and AI applications, from recommendation systems to natural language processing. However, deploying and managing these databases in cloud environments and clusters is often a challenge for most teams, who don’t realize the complexities until they run into them.
Zeet is a cloud product that is making deploying and managing your vector database - and the rest of your supporting cloud infrastructure - easier than ever before. In this blog post, we will explore how Zeet simplifies the process of hosting and maintaining vector databases for machine learning applications, and how you can too, all from a single, user-friendly dashboard.
The Challenge of Vector Database Management
Deploying and managing a vector database can be challenging for even experienced teams. Worries about owning data, bad developer UX, and the general complexity around managing and scaling infrastructure are issues with existing solutions.
The Vector-database-as-a-service solutions on the market promise ease of use and set up, but concerns about security and data-ownership raise concerns for most teams. Conversely, building from scratch is too much complexity for teams without the bandwidth or horsepower to take on managing an ever expanding infrastructure stack. A third option, using a add-on like PGVector, can solve these two problems, but given the bolt-on nature, the developer experience is kludgy at best.
These problems all center around lacking control—of your data, your infrastructure, your experience—and that all changes with Zeet.
Zeet: Your Vector Database Deployment Solution
By using Zeet’s Database Blueprints, you can deploy a full configurable, scalable, easy-to-use vector database to your cloud in one-click, no matter what cloud you’re on, how you want to host it, or what level of infrastructure and Kubernetes experience you have.
It’s in your cloud, meaning your vector database is close to your application, saving you money egress costs, and data privacy is guaranteed because it’s your database—you don’t have to give all your data to someone else. You control your costs, because we properly utilize the whole node.
We had built our internal infrastructure in house, through a combination of multiple cloud providers (AWS & GCP) and third party services. Zeet instantly cloned our infrastructure and helps us easily manage deployments & updates regardless of the cloud provider. Now, we don't have have to worry about the complexities of managing that ourselves and can focus on our application code.

With its intuitive and user-friendly platform, Zeet simplifies the deployment and management of vector databases for machine learning applications. Let's dive into how Zeet makes this possible:
1. Simpler Infrastructure Management
Users can effortlessly set up a vector database on their chosen cloud infrastructure, whether it's AWS, Akamai, Google Cloud, CoreWeave, or another cloud provider, with just a few clicks. No need to spend hours configuring servers, networks, or storage; Zeet will provision your database, and handle all your infrastructure and networking needs so you can focus on building.
2. Unified Dashboard
From a single, centralized interface, you can get the benefits of Kubernetes or RDS no matter your experience level with Kubernetes or having to learn a cloud console. Manage all aspects of your vector database in an easy to use UI that is designed to give you total control. This unified view eliminates the need to jump between multiple technologies, tools, or platforms, saving you time and reducing complexity.
Zeet's auto-scaling capabilities ensure that your vector databases can handle fluctuations in workload seamlessly. As your machine learning applications grow, Zeet automatically scales your resources up or down to optimize performance and minimize costs, all without manual intervention.
4. Security and Compliance
Zeet provides robust security features, including encryption, access control, and compliance monitoring, ensuring that your vector databases meet industry standards and data protection regulations. You maintain full control of your database and infrastructure.
5. Monitoring and Alerts
Zeet offers real-time monitoring and alerting, allowing you to keep a close eye on the performance and health of your vector databases. Receive instant notifications about any issues, so you can take proactive measures to maintain optimal performance. Zeet has integrations with leading APM and observability tools.
How to Deploy a Fully Managed Vector Database to your Cloud in Minutes
1. Select from the list of vector database Blueprints
Zeet Blueprints are pre-configured templates that deploy infrastructure and services with just one-click through the Blueprints Marketplace. Use them to deploy Infrastructure as Code, Serverless and containerized apps & services, and in this case, production ready Vector Databases to your cloud.
2. Configure for Deploy
Once you've selected a Blueprint, you can connect to a Deploy Target for your new database. After this is set, you'll be able to configure your Vector Database's networking & port settings, environment variables, and depending on the Blueprint, other Custom Values using YAML. Zeet's default values work well for most teams, but for more advanced teams or teams that need specific configurations, you can make all your infrastructure changes using one centralized and easy-to-use UI.
NOTE: When applicable, you should configure persistent volumes to ensure no data is lost.
3. Deployment and Connection Details
Once you've configured your Input Values, click Deploy, and Zeet will handle the provisioning and deployment of your database. This can take anywhere from 10 seconds, to a few minutes, depending on what you're deploying and where you're deploying it. Once deployment has finished, you can click "Connection Details" to access all the connection info you need to connect to your database.
Here is a short tutorial on deploying a sample vector database to your cloud using the steps outlined above.
