A new silicon vertex detector for the Belle experiment has been in operation at the high-luminosity asymmetric energy electron-positron collider KEKB since October 2003. It provides a larger polar angle acceptance, a better vertex resolution and a higher radiation tolerance than the previous one. The obtained performances indicate that the SVD2 works reliably, in very good agreement with expectations.
