  1. As an Aiven User
    I want to lower the service storage to a value below the plan default
    so that I can better adapt my resource utilisation to my workload for services that don't require as much storage

  2. As a CFO / FinOps Leader, I want to easily track our Aiven cloud costs, so that we can provide accurate reporting, allocate costs internally, and to prioritize workload optimization projects based on accurate cost data.

  3. This feature will allow customers who purchase Aiven services through a cloud provider (e.g., AWS, GCP, Azure) marketplace, to track their ongoing usage and spend via the Aiven console.

  4. As an existing Aiven customer
    I want to pay via a marketplace subscription
    so that I can recognise spend against my hyperscaler commitment and simplify my procurement processes
    In addition, this is currently a manual process and involves coordinating steps between the customer, Aiven Sales team, and Aiven Ops team. I would like to self-serve this capability.

    We are working on making the Marketplaces payment methods in the Aiven tenant rather than being separate tenants!

  5. As SRE/FinOps, I want to disable Datadog integration on slave instance (when using active/passive architecture) so that I can reduce costs on Datadog side without degrading my monitoring/observability.

  6. As DBA, I want to be able to define a schedule to shutdown and turn on services automatically so that I can save costs on non-production environments.
    Example:
    at 19:00 Monday to Friday power off the instance
    at 06:00 Monday to Friday power on the instance

    I will leave this open to see if we get more votes over the next 6 months. This can be accomplished easily with a simple shell script and Aiven CLI with a cron job for example:


    0 19 * * 1-5 /path/to/shutdown.sh  # Shutdown at 7:00 PM (19:00), Monday-Friday 0 6 * * 1-5 /path/to/startup.sh   # Startup at 6:00 AM (06:00), Monday-Friday


    #!/bin/bash


    # Replace with your Aiven project and service names

    PROJECT_NAME="your-project-name"

    SERVICE_NAME="your-service-name"


    aiven service stop/start $PROJECT_NAME $SERVICE_NAME
