Pinecone, formerly known as HyperCube, is a machine learning (ML) cloud infrastructure company that answers complex queries over billions of high dimensional vectors accurately and in milliseconds.

Pinecone has built a vector database that generates data in a specialized format to help build machine learning applications faster, something that was previously only accessible to the largest organizations.

Pinecone was founded in 2019 by Edo Liberty. The company is headquartered in San Mateo, California and Israel.


Pinecone offers a single pod for free to help customers get comfortable with the product and perform a simple proof of concept. After that, they start paying based on the number of pods.


Pinecone's vector database supports large scale production deployments of real-time applications such as personalization, semantic text search, image retrieval, data fusion, deduplication, recommendation, and anomaly detection.


Pinecone's database is 100% serverless and API-driven, which means customers always have the computing resources they need, when they need them, without having to worry about infrastructure or maintenance.


Pinecone is backed by Menlo Ventures, Tiger Global, and Wing Venture Capital. The company raised $28M in a Series A round on Mar 29, 2022. This brings Pinecone's total funding to $38M to date.
