🚀 Release: milvus-2.3.0
🖥️ Computational upgrades with GPU & ARM64:
GPU Indexing via Nvidia: QPS has improved over threefold compared to the previous CPU HNSW indexing. For computation-intensive datasets, there's almost a tenfold increase in performance.
ARM64 Docker Image: ARM CPUs deliver a 20% performance boost while being 20% more cost-effective.
🔎 Search & indexing enhancements:
Range Search: A more granular search mechanism enabling vector retrieval based on defined distances from an input vector, making proximity-based data retrievals more intuitive.
ScaNN Index Integration: Compared to HNSW or IVFFlat, the ScaNN index provides a 20% performance improvement and is seven times faster than IVFFlat.
Growing Index: As data streams in, Milvus 2.3 indexes it in real-time, ensuring quicker query executions.
🔀 Data pipeline tools:
Iterator in Pymilvus: Enables batch-export of large quantities of vectors, especially beneficial when handling data in the tens of thousands.
Upsert Operation: Simultaneous update or insert of data in a single request, streamlining data management and enhancing efficiency.
CDC Support: Facilitates data syncing across data centers, allows incremental backups, and ensures smooth data migration.
We've also improved the system's operability, load balancing, and query performance. Several bugs have been addressed, and we've optimized core components such as the ‘QueryNode’. Our message queue system has been overhauled for better efficiency. Additionally, tools like Birdwatcher and Attu have seen updates for better functionality.
