Service and feature releases

New services and features follow a release lifecycles that promotes feature quality.

The release workflow is:

  1. Limited availability (private beta)
  2. Early availability (public beta)
  3. General availability

Limited availability (private beta) Limited availabilty

The limited availability (private beta) stage is an initial release of a new functionality that you can try out by invitation only.

If you are interested in trying a service or feature in this stage, contact the sales team.

Early availability (public beta) Early availabilty

Features and services in the early availability (public beta) stage are released to all users with some restrictions on the functionality and service level agreement.

They are intended for use in non-production environments, but you can test them with production-like workloads to gauge their behavior under heavy load.

Issues raised for these services and features are considered low severity. You can provide feedback about the feature.

You can enable most early availability features yourself on the feature preview page in the user profile.


Using an early availability means that you consent to us contacting you to request feedback. The feedback we receive helps us shape the products you use.

General availability

New services and features become generally available once they are ready for production use at scale. The duration of the early and limited availability stages depends on the adoption of the service or feature by the users and what changes are required to address the key issues that are discovered.

Billing for limited and early availability services

Aiven provides credits for you to try out limited and early availability services. After the credit code expires or after you have used the credits, you are charged for the service at the usual rate.
