Aerospike Inc
We were developing an advertisement time auction application, where we had to store the client's personal details, advertisement-related details, location, and many other details. Moreover, we required a promotion, cookies, and a few more details from the front end. All this information is heavy in terms of size and cannot be lost if the server crash. So, we required an extremely fast disk database with high scalability and low throughput.

[Google Cloud SQL] is a big help for IT administrators to ensure the security of databases and data backups as well as replacing replica databases in failover situations, It is very powerful and fast in managing and migrating databases and it only takes a few minutes to create and connect to your first database using the built-in migration tools.

Cons

  • Load balancing per network segments.
  • Reduction in price.

  • Secure access is complicated to set up - This is the nature of secure access, but it can be frustrating spending much time simply configuring access.
  • No custom IP - It isn't possible to customize an instance's IP. This makes it harder to replace an instance since a new or clone instance always gets a new IP.
  • Cost tends to increase - This is the nature of cloud hosting, but over time costs creep up as utilization increases.

If money isn't an issue, and you're not on the cloud, then I'd go with Aerospike. If you're the cloud ie, aws or azure, then i'd stick with dynamoDB or Cosmos then. Aerospike is definitely not something you want to put into the cloud. It doesn't work well w/ cross regions. If cross DC, you'll have to write some stuff for data integrity checks.

GCP support in general requires a support agreement. For small organizations like us, this is not affordable or reasonable. It would help if Google had a support mechanism for smaller organizations. It was a steep learning curve for us because this was our first entry into the cloud database world. Better documentation also would have helped.

Aerospike is much more performant than MongoDB, however there is much greater community adoption and support for mongo

At first, we choose Google Cloud SQL only for demo purposes. It is so easy to set up and It is fully managed. we have worked with Azure SQL as well but Google SQL is more simple to use and It fully secure, reliable, provides high availability, and very Low Latency.

  • When first migrated to a cloud environment, the Cloud SQL instance had a higher cost than our former MySQL VM instance, but many other infrastructure costs had also been reduced and the total balance of our migration to the cloud was a reduction of 45% of our infrastructure costs.
  • DB performance has increased and maintenance tasks reduced in a high percentage.
  • Disaster recovery plans are easier to follow now than before our cloud migration.
