  1. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to receive holistic analysis of my database performance, including optimization recommendations. This will ensure that my customers do not encounter performance issues, and I will be able to quickly identify and fix them without having to call a database specialist.

    Additionally, it is critical that the AI Performance insights be 100% non-intrusive and do not require access to my databases' sensitive data.

  2. As a developer or database administrator,
    I want to scale and distribute my PostgreSQL databases,
    so that I can handle large-scale data processing and analytics workloads efficiently.

    The Citus extension offers the benefits of scalability, improved performance, fault tolerance, high availability, efficient data distribution, and seamless integration with PostgreSQL, enables the users to effectively manage and process large-scale data workloads.

  3. As a database administrator or developer, I would like multi-region standby capability for my PostgreSQL and MySQL databases so that I can ensure high-availability and business continuity by maintaining standbys across different regions, enabling automatic promotion in the event of a region-wide outage.

  4. As a developer looking for an open-source alternative to MongoDB,
    I want to use FerretDB to translate MongoDB wire protocol queries to SQL,
    so that I can stop using proprietary MongoDB instances.

  5. As Database administrator, with a large footprint of applications being served,
    I want to have a read only replica cluster in another region, that is sized appropriately, with it's own read replica nodes provisioned,
    so that I can fail over and that read replica can quickly handle the production workload in the scenario of a disaster in one region/cloud vendor, to minimise any disruption to service.

  7. As a developer,
    I want to connect to my Aiven for Postgres services without providing credentials and use only certificate authentication as offered by Postgres https://www.postgresql.org/docs/current/auth-cert.html
    so that I can be compliant with my internal security policies

  8. As a database administrator for a large enterprise,
    I want to be able to leverage an Aiven platform API,
    so that I can extract and archive, logical backups of my instances in order to meet and pass industry audit and compliance checks for data retention.
    These periods of retention could vary but be as long as 3 years. I would not expect to be able to restore these logical backups in the Aiven platform, and would be manage this myself should I need to.

  9. As a data privacy officer, database administrator, data analyst/researcher, or compliance officer, I would like the ability to anonymize sensitive data in the database by masking or replacing personally identifiable information (PII) or commercially sensitive data so that I can protect individuals' privacy and ensure compliance with data protection regulations such as HIPAA and GDPR.

  10. As a database administrator or developer,
    I would like to integrate LDAP authentication with PostgreSQL,
    So that user management becomes centralized through existing LDAP services like ActiveDirectory, enhancing security, simplifying authentication, and eliminating the need for separate authentication methods.

  11. As a database administrator or developer,
    I would like to perform a cascade power off operation on a database service with read replicas when a power off operation is initiated,
    so that the service hierarchy is navigated, starting with powering off the replicas and ending with the master, all in a single uninterrupted transaction.
    This feature aims to prevent customers from having to set up automatic schedulers on their environments, reducing resource waste and ensuring a seamless and efficient power off process for the database service.

  12. As a site reliability engineer,
    I want to be able to create a highly available read-replica service,
    so that I can use it in the critical path of my application without availability being affected by loss of a single node.
    In addition, this can currently be achieved via at least two separate read-replica services (currently plans are limited to those with only one node) and appropriate client configuration, but Aiven should be able to do this for me instead.

  13. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to perform in-place major upgrades on standby nodes and read-replicas for PostgreSQL so that the whole upgrade window is considerably shorter, resulting in increased high-availability for standbys and improved availability for read replicas. This feature will also alleviate any bottlenecks caused by the quorum sync replication, enhancing the overall database system's efficiency and resilience.

  14. As a DBA
    I want to be able to click a button or call an API to initiate a primary -> secondary failover
    so that I can recover from an issue that Aiven isn't detecting, or so I can exercise my own availability tests.
    This should be available for all DB engines.

    Thank you

  16. As a DBA or developer, I want to be warned if I am updating a parameter that will trigger a restart of my instance so that I can understand the consequences and avoid issues/mistakes.

    Example of parameters: sharedbufferspercentage, autovacuumfreezemax_age

  17. As a database administrator,
    I would like to be able to see the availability zone locations of the cloud region where my high-availability capable PostgreSQL or MySQL database cluster resides, and I would like to be able to initiate a manual high-availability takeover operation for that cluster,
    so that I can have improved visibility of the availability zones where my database cluster instances are located, and I would have more authority on promotion of read-replicas for the the purpose of troubleshooting performance issues and avoiding incidental issues on specific availability zones.

  18. As a database administrator or developer, I would like to query and analyze large volumes of data efficiently in PostgreSQL as a column-oriented database so that I can achieve fast and parallelized analytics without extensive code changes, reducing processing time from weeks to minutes.

  20. A fast way to optimize my PostgreSQL & MySQL queries automatically.

    As a software engineer, I would like to submit my query and receive a newly rewritten version of the query, optimized to run 10 times faster. These optimizations could potentially save my team an average of 50 weekly hours, which are currently spent manually optimizing these queries.
    I would like to perform these optimizations directly from Aiven's console, even if my Database is not hosted on Aiven yet.

    Additionally, It is critical that the optimization process be 100% non-intrusive and not require access to my databases' sensitive data.
