  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. As a Software Engineer or DBA, I want to be able to enforce schemas on JSON/JSONB fields in a convenient manner, so that I can ensure bad data doesn't getting written to my database. https://github.com/supabase/pg_jsonschema seems to be the most popular extension for doing this.

    I want to use FerretDB to translate MongoDB wire protocol queries to SQL,
    so that I can stop using proprietary MongoDB instances.

  8. As an devops engineers
    I want to store extensive amount of data on Redis but only need part of them to be on memory
    so that I can still utilize the low-latency nature of Redis but also be able to retain as much data as I can without pay the cost for unnecessary memory.
    In addition, i also want to be able to move data around different tiers

  9. Currently, MySQL slow query logs are stored in the mysql.slow_log table. Adding an option to redirect those logs into service logs would allow log integrations, like OpenSearch, to pick those up and give customers greater value and flexibility.

    It would implicitly solve the following:

  10. As developer
    I want to fork databases as quickly as possible
    so that I can start developing new features immediately and run fast automated tests as a part of my CI/CD.
    In addition, this is especially important for larger database instances which can take a lot time to do a full copy of the entire dataset.

    Also known as copy on write or database branching.

  12. As a devops
    I want to have the service startup time in the GET service endpoint
    so that I can know I a service has been UP or STOPPED since more than 7 days for example. For now I have to fetch the activity logs of the project, then look up for the service, then look for the right event (if the status of the service is UP then I'm looking for the "servicepoweron" event else the "servicepoweroff") but sometimes the service is UP for more than 1 year so I can't find the startup date of the…

  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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

    In order to improve on my disaster recovery strategies and reduce the "read latency" since my read request will be routed to the Redis cluster that has a closest geographically location

  18. As a developer, I would like to simplify the process of building search and Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG) AI applications with PostgreSQL so that embedding and generation AI models are closer to the database, enabling me to create embeddings, retrieve LLM chat completions, generate responses, and reason over data directly within SQL queries.

  19. As a developer or database admin, I would like a query editor built into the Aiven Console to improve my productivity, allow a streamlined workflow, facilitate trainings, and ease of use for unfamiliar users so that I can run queries directly on the Aiven Console on the web without needing to use additional tools.

  20. 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.
