Airbyte and Vectara Partner to Simplify Data Access for Generative AI Applications

Data connectors for more than 350 sources facilitate building generative artificial intelligence applications

Airbyte, creators of the leading open-source data movement infrastructure, has partnered with Vectara, the trusted Generative AI (GenAI) platform, to deliver an integration that makes it easier for developers to build scalable enterprise-grade GenAI applications using Large Language Models (LLMs).

“What sets Vectara apart is that its technology works on businesses’ own data. By integrating with Airbyte, it’s now easier and more efficient, with access to more than 350 data sources,” said Michel Tricot, co-founder and CEO, Airbyte. ”It’s a breakthrough that gives Vectara users greater productivity and accuracy with fewer hallucinations in their results.”

Vectara delivers generative AI capabilities for developers via an easy-to-use API. Often referred to as “RAG-in-a-box”, Vectara’s platform simplifies the development of GenAI applications by taking care of document chunking, embedding, vector storage, retrieval, and summarization.

“Vectara is the first Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) as-a-service to integrate with Airbyte, which makes it super simple to move volumes of data for scalable GenAI applications,” said Bader Hamdan, Vectara’s ecosystem chief. “Value co-creation is intrinsic to Vectara’s ecosystem strategy, and this integration allows customers to combine Airbyte’s scalable data ingestion functionality with Vectara’s trusted GenAI Platform to create robust and secure RAG-enabled enterprise applications.”

Airbyte data integration technology handles incremental syncs, schema evolution, and provides observability. All existing advantages of the Airbyte platform are now extended to Vectara, including the following.

  • The largest catalog of data sources that can be connected within minutes, and optimized for performance.
  • Availability of the no-code connector builder that makes it possible to easily and quickly create new connectors for data integrations that addresses the “long-tail” of data sources.
  • Ability to do incremental syncs to only extract changes in the data from a previous sync.
  • Built-in resiliency in the event of a disrupted session moving data, so the connection will resume from the point of the disruption.
  • Secure authentication for data access.
  • Ability to schedule and monitor status of all syncs.

Airbyte makes moving data easy and affordable across almost any source and destination, helping enterprises provide their users with access to the right data for analysis and decision-making.
