We're happy to announce that we've recently added the new Google Cloud Northeast Asia (Tokyo) region to Aiven. All Aiven services are now available in the new region which is our fourth supported cloud in Japan and 12th cloud in Asia.
We've also been busy enhancing our Kafka service with new topic management APIs and user inteface which we hope to roll out during the next couple of weeks. On the PostgreSQL side we've just finished the development of our connection pooling system and PGBouncer -based connection pooling will be available in Aiven after our next service update. The use cases and benefits of these new features will be covered in upcoming blog posts.
The rest of the week the Aiven founding team is busy meeting new and old customers and partners at the Slush startup conference here in Helsinki, Finland.
