    Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Before we dive into this new database, let’s talk a little bit about your background. 
    Topic 2 - Let’s first talk about Kafka. What is it,. what does it do, and what are common use-cases that use Kafka?
    Topic 3 - Kafka handles all these streams of data / events, but there are a bunch of other pieces needed to connect the data to the applications. What are those pieces, and where are their often challenges?
    Topic 4 - Let’s talk about this new project - ksqlDB. It’s real-time, it’s Kafka and it’s SQL. Walk us through how it was created and the types of challenges it solves for. 
    Topic 5 - How is ksqlDB different from using other SQL databases? 
    Topic 6 - What are some of the initial ways that you’re seeing ksqlDB being used? Is it beginning to allow new use-cases to emerge?

    Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Before we dive into the work you’re doing with Kubernetes, let’s talk about your background. 
    Topic 2 - Kubernetes started with a focus on “cloud-native apps”, then it became a blurring of infrastructure. How does Couchbase see the market evolving around Kubernetes, especially as a stateful service? 
    Topic 3 - There is frequently a debate about whether or not to run data services on Kubernetes, or run them off-cluster. How does Couchbase view this, and what are some things that Kubernetes does to improve how Couchbase runs?
    Topic 4 - Let’s talk about some of the common use-cases you’re seeing for Couchbase, whether it’s on Kubernetes, or in the cloud, or out at the Edge. 
    Topic 5 - Do you see any multi-cloud or hybrid-cloud use-cases where Couchbase is a good fit, or is it too difficult to span databases across clouds? 
    Topic 6 - What areas around Kubernetes do you see evolving to help use-cases for Couchbase (i.e. other CNCF projects, etc.)?

    Topic 4 - How does Aiven think about the cloud “shared responsibility model”, in terms of where Aiven’s service stops and the customer's engagement starts? Who is responsible for the data?
    Topic 5 - What open source projects are on your radar for adding new services?
    Topic 6 - As more technology companies are migrating applications to the cloud, or creating SaaS offerings, are there opportunities for companies to partner with Aiven on the breadth of services you offer?
