AnalyticDB for PostgreSQL is a massively parallel processing (MPP) data warehousing service that is designed to analyze large volumes of data online.

AnalyticDB for PostgreSQL is developed based on the open-source Greenplum Database project and is enhanced with in-depth extensions by Alibaba Cloud. AnalyticDB for PostgreSQL is compatible with the ANSI SQL 2003 syntax and the PostgreSQL and Oracle database ecosystems. AnalyticDB for PostgreSQL also supports row store and column store. AnalyticDB for PostgreSQL processes petabytes of data offline at a high performance level and supports highly concurrent online queries.

You'll need to install langchain-community with pip install -qU langchain-community to use this integration

This notebook shows how to use functionality related to the AnalyticDB vector database. To run, you should have an AnalyticDB instance up and running:

from langchain_community.vectorstores import AnalyticDB
from langchain_openai import OpenAIEmbeddings
from langchain_text_splitters import CharacterTextSplitter

Split documents and get embeddings by call OpenAI API

from langchain_community.document_loaders import TextLoader

loader = TextLoader("../../how_to/state_of_the_union.txt")
documents = loader.load()
text_splitter = CharacterTextSplitter(chunk_size=1000, chunk_overlap=0)
docs = text_splitter.split_documents(documents)

embeddings = OpenAIEmbeddings()
API Reference:TextLoader

Connect to AnalyticDB by setting related ENVIRONMENTS.

export PG_HOST={your_analyticdb_hostname}
export PG_PORT={your_analyticdb_port} # Optional, default is 5432
export PG_DATABASE={your_database} # Optional, default is postgres
export PG_USER={database_username}
export PG_PASSWORD={database_password}

Then store your embeddings and documents into AnalyticDB

import os

connection_string = AnalyticDB.connection_string_from_db_params(
driver=os.environ.get("PG_DRIVER", "psycopg2cffi"),
host=os.environ.get("PG_HOST", "localhost"),
port=int(os.environ.get("PG_PORT", "5432")),
database=os.environ.get("PG_DATABASE", "postgres"),
user=os.environ.get("PG_USER", "postgres"),
password=os.environ.get("PG_PASSWORD", "postgres"),

vector_db = AnalyticDB.from_documents(

Query and retrieve data

query = "What did the president say about Ketanji Brown Jackson"
docs = vector_db.similarity_search(query)
Tonight. I call on the Senate to: Pass the Freedom to Vote Act. Pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. And while you’re at it, pass the Disclose Act so Americans can know who is funding our elections. 

Tonight, I’d like to honor someone who has dedicated his life to serve this country: Justice Stephen Breyer—an Army veteran, Constitutional scholar, and retiring Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Justice Breyer, thank you for your service.

One of the most serious constitutional responsibilities a President has is nominating someone to serve on the United States Supreme Court.

And I did that 4 days ago, when I nominated Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. One of our nation’s top legal minds, who will continue Justice Breyer’s legacy of excellence.
