Tair is a cloud native in-memory database service developed by Alibaba Cloud. It provides rich data models and enterprise-grade capabilities to support your real-time online scenarios while maintaining full compatibility with open source Redis. Tair also introduces persistent memory-optimized instances that are based on the new non-volatile memory (NVM) storage medium.

This notebook shows how to use functionality related to the Tair vector database.

To run, you should have a Tair instance up and running.

from langchain.embeddings.fake import FakeEmbeddings
from langchain.text_splitter import CharacterTextSplitter
from langchain.vectorstores import Tair
from langchain.document_loaders import TextLoader
loader = TextLoader('../../../state_of_the_union.txt')
documents = loader.load()
text_splitter = CharacterTextSplitter(chunk_size=1000, chunk_overlap=0)
docs = text_splitter.split_documents(documents)

embeddings = FakeEmbeddings(size=128)

Connect to Tair using the TAIR_URL environment variable

export TAIR_URL="redis://{username}:{password}@{tair_address}:{tair_port}"

or the keyword argument tair_url.

Then store documents and embeddings into Tair.

tair_url = "redis://localhost:6379"

# drop first if index already exists

vector_store = Tair.from_documents(

Query similar documents.

query = "What did the president say about Ketanji Brown Jackson"
docs = vector_store.similarity_search(query)
