Verify AVS feature key


The feature-key file is a cryptographically-signed list of enabled server features, issued upon purchase of a paid version of the Aerospike Database. Aerospike Database Enterprise Edition (EE) and Aerospike Database Standard Edition (SE) require a feature-key file to start up. Aerospike Database Community Edition (CE) does not use a feature-key file.

Aerospike EE includes a default feature-key file that provides a single-node evaluation for developers. Customers should swap in their production feature-key file before deploying to production.

Verify AVS feature-key

To use Aerospike Vector Search (AVS), you need a feature-key file with the vector-service option enabled, as shown in the following example. If the vector-service option is not enabled, AVS will not start.


This same feature key can be used for starting the Aerospike Database.
