2 min readJul 20, 2022

Vald has been focused on developing stable operations since its release in 2019. Nowadays, the Vald project has reached a turning point. We will be focusing our efforts on improving various features and usability improvements.

In advance, we would like to share a roadmap of the various plans we will work on this summer.

New features

We are planning to provide the following new features in Vald to deliver extra user value.

Request Mirroring

  • Mirroring request for 2 or more Vald Cluster for multi-region/multi-AZ environment

Change tracing tool to Open Telemetry

New Vald Agent Core algorithms

New NGT Distance Types


  • A feature that intercepts unnecessary high-frequency backoff packets at a very early stage.

We will share the detail of each feature in the release document as needed.

Document & Others

Additional documentation and helper tools will be added as needed.

Update document

  • Mainly, we’re focusing on adding/updating configuration documents to be easy to use for many situations, e.g.: backup, filtering, and monitoring.

Continous Benchmark tool

  • This tool is designed to perform continuous load testing for the Vald Cluster.
  • It enables the users can test the ANN under high-load cluster conditions and execute testing that meets the user’s requirements.

A new demo project using fastText

We will also share as same and update these ones by one.

Release schedule


Until there is a significant change (helm chart changes a lot), we will continue to release in the 1.5 series. The addition of a new core algorithm is not included here.


We will release v1.6 by the end of September 2022. It will include adding new core algorithms and the request mirroring functions.
