The announcement was made during Pinecone’s “AI Transformation Summit,” a highly anticipated event in collaboration with Microsoft. The Pinecone vector database is one of the leading components of the AI tech stack.
“We have witnessed a significant demand for our managed vector database from enterprises that rely on Microsoft Azure for their infrastructure services,” said Edo Liberty, Founder & CEO of Pinecone. “Through our partnership with Microsoft, we are delighted to offer Azure customers access to Pinecone’s powerful capabilities.”
Pinecone now offers managed services across all three major cloud providers with the addition of Azure regions.
