      [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.

      Google Cloud SQL

      • Very easy to use and migrate existing database systems to Google Cloud SQL system
      • Easy to query with real-time query assessment as well as processing metrics to help optimize the queries
      • No need to learn any other querying language (like in Hadoop ecosystem), as SQL works pretty fine
      • Easy-to-use GCP portal to type in queries and see the results on the screen (no need to go on command line )
      • Easy to set up

      Google Cloud SQL

      • 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.

      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.

      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.

      Google Cloud SQL

      • 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.
