Knowledge Bases for Amazon Bedrock securely connects foundation models (FMs) to internal company data sources for Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) to deliver more relevant, context-specific, and accurate responses. Anthropic’s Claude 3 Sonnet foundation model is now generally available on Knowledge Bases. The Claude 3 family of models is the next generation of state-of-the-art models from Anthropic. 

At launch, the Claude 3 context window accepts up to 200,000 tokens (roughly 150,000 words, or over 500 pages of material). For the vast majority of workloads, Claude 3 Sonnet is faster on inputs and outputs than Anthropic’s Claude 2 and 2.1 models, with higher levels of intelligence. Claude 3 Sonnet is well-suited for tasks that require complex reasoning, quick outputs, and RAG. Sonnet is supported through the fully managed RetrieveAndGenerate API. 

Anthropic’s Claude 3 Sonnet model support for Amazon Bedrock Knowledge Bases is now generally available in the US East (N. Virginia) and US West (Oregon) AWS Regions. To learn more, read the AWS News launch blog and Claude on Amazon Bedrock product page. To get started, refer to the Knowledge Bases for Amazon Bedrock documentation and visit the Amazon Bedrock console.
