FAQ

Learn more about SuperDuperDB.

Is SuperDuperDB a database?

No, SuperDuperDB is not a traditional standalone database. Instead, it is a versatile Python framework or tool designed to seamlessly integrate artificial intelligence capabilities into various databases. It supports a wide range of databases, including but not limited to MongoDB, MySQL, Postgres, and more. The focus is on enhancing database functionality with AI features rather than serving as a standalone database solution.

Is SuperDuperDB a vector-database?

No, SuperDuperDB is not a vector-database. It is a versatile Python framework that excels in bringing AI into your favorite database.

Is plugging superduperdb directly into a database secure? What precautions are in place, and can I restrict access to specific tables, such as a users table?

To adhere to the principle of least privilege, SuperDuperDB requires read-only access to the tables you intend to index.

One option is maintaining your database as read-only and storing the index externally, such as on your filesystem. Alternatively, you can establish a new table dedicated to housing the index (e.g superduper_index). In this case, the requisite step would be granting us write access to that specific table.

For enhanced security, consider creating a new user specifically for SuperDuperDB. Grant this user read-only access to your data tables and read-write access exclusively to the superduper_index table.
