If there’s one thing I know about startups, it’s that they like to go fast. It can be hard to keep up with so many releases, feature updates, and events, it really gives meaning to the phrase “don’t blink our you might miss it”
As summer begins winding down, let’s recap the amazing things Momento has done the past few months.
Introducing the Momento Vector Index
For those new to vector databases, there's no need to fret. We've crafted some helpful educational content and how-tos to assist developers in understanding the intricacies:
Enhanced access control for Momento authentication
Security remains our top priority. Thus, we've made significant enhancements to the access control of your Momento account. Now, you can craft short-lived tokens specific to individual caches or topics. Even better, you can control permissions for reading, writing, or both on specific cache items. The beauty of these tokens lies in their ephemeral nature; they become obsolete in minutes or hours significantly reducing the risk of unauthorized access or abuse. This heightened security measure is particularly essential in the interconnected world of IoT, where devices constantly exchange data, and in browsers, where such authentication can prevent potential misuse and vulnerabilities.
Whether you're using our SDK or accessing the Momento Console, the process is seamless. Dive deeper into this update with a discussion between Daniela Miao and Allen Helton. We also shared a blog post explaining the difference between API keys and tokens.
Full support for HTTP API
It's here: direct support for our HTTP API. Execute tasks like setting, retrieving, and deleting cache values or even publishing to a topic, all with an HTTP call and without the need for SDKs. For those keen on details:

The evolution of Momento Topics
Momento Topics, our event messaging service, has been supercharged. Not only does it function as managed WebSockets, but it also ensures you're free from the hassles of cloud or connection management. This lets you focus on publishing and subscribing. One of the biggest advantages of "Topics" is its cost-effectiveness at scale, especially when compared to alternatives like AppSync.
To provide some context and deep dives into this service, we've released some insightful content:
