  1. Add a Performant Transcoder and Compression Service

    Add a Performant Transcoder and Compression Service - that could could be used to transcode videos, images, graphics, audio in streaming mode with existing gcp services. Additionally, provide a compression service that could allow for conversion between various file and data formats - anything2triple, avro2json, rdf2jsonld, avro2jsonld, cvs2json, doc2pdf, jpeg2png etc

      • Add a NLG Service

        Add a NLG service - this service should allow for someone to type a natural language query that goes beyond static sql but allows for inference at the query plan and get back a context-specific result either in form of a table output or a report. Point here is to avoid having to use sql to query the database but instead to use english sentence as a means of query.

        • Reminder for Committed Use Discounts

          To make sure we purchase for another committed use discounts (renewal), would be great to have feature reminder every month or one month before the expiration date of committed use discount.
          the salesperson would be happy, the customer would be more than happy! :)

            • Partner interconnect, allow to specify custom a IP range for BGP peering

              At present the IP range for BGP peering in a partner interconnect is 169.254.x.x set by Google Cloud. This seems that cannot be customized.These has some problems:

              - I need to do monitoring from the peering device to the VMs in the VPC. This monitoring cannot use the 169.254.x.x address range as source IP that the sockets will use by default.
              - traceroute not working.
              - maybe this list is not exhaustive.

              AWS and Azure do support specify a custom IP range for BGP peering.

                • Add a Multiagent Service

                  Add a BDI/Multiagent Service - that could be used for gametheory/argumentation, fault tolerance as part of natural computation, reinforcement learning steps. Such services could be useful for advertising platforms, detecting faults, security, chatbots, etc.

                  • Provide pictorial representation of all resources and connectivity within a project

                    A user build its project by adding multiple VPC, subnets, compute resource, network services and other VMs across various regions. A dashboard which provides an intuitive pictorial representation of the complete project would be very helpful. It could be similar to representations you use across your documentation pages. For eg:
                    https://cloud.google.com/router/images/vpn-failover.svg

                    The topology may also include below items:
                    #### Ip addresses configured on each resources
                    #### Vpc peering,VPN tunnels, interconnect etc.

                    For larger projects, you may provide both minimal and expandable views.
                    Each vpc/subnet/region/resource on the topology should be a clickable item which would display further attributes associated with it.

                      • Signed URLs for CDN which include expiration?

                        Can we have this feature where the same content is shown to multiple users based on whether they have subscription or not. We want to include expiration (5-10 mins) and the link then becomes unusable and cannot be shared with others. Similar functionality is available at Similar to https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonCloudFront/latest/DeveloperGuide/private-content-signed-urls.html

                        • Add atomic increment/decrement operations to Spanner

                          (There should be a separate section of this forum for Spanner)

                          I'd like Spanner to offer a simple API for atomically incrementing or decrementing a counter. Currently, we have to read a record, increment and write back. Compared to regular SQL `SET x = x + 1`, or DynamoDB which offers an increment operation, this is much more programmer overhead.

                          Plus, it allows race conditions where multiple writers are incrementing a column, even given Spanner's external strong consistency, if both read the same value before one writes back an incremented amount. This makes it hard to keep denormalised counts accurate…

                          • Billing Reporting with reference to bill

                            GCP Billing export shows up all costs and credits that will be billed, or were already billed for a specific billing account.

                            It would be nice, if I could see which costs were already payed / or shown on a monthly bill, and which will show up on the next bill.

                            Right now I can't tell exactly what amount will show up on my monthly bill, by evaluating the billing export data.

                            Could there be a reference to a bill, or at least a flag "was_billed" or something else in the billing export data?

                            I know, an additional column may…

                              • Allow minimum RAM for an instance to be lower < 0.9GB * numcores

                                It would be nice to specify a RAM quantity which is less than the absolute lowest constraint of 0.9GB times the number of cores.

                                Right now, the relationships possible are

                                1core, 1GB RAM
                                2core, 1.8GB RAM
                                4core, 3.6GB RAM

                                What would be better for my application is

                                2core, 1.6GB RAM
                                4core, 3.2GB RAM

                                Since I don't need the extra RAM and this fits my use case better.
