We have been using it mainly whenever we need structured data.

Use case:
- Historical pricing of products (Archive)
  • Super easy to set up: new instance -> Authorization -> play
  • Automatic backup every night! (Keeps past 7 days as copy as well)
  • Automatic failover, in case your main SQL instance fails, they automatically switch you over.
  • It could be cheaper. Definitely cheaper.
  • It could provide more information about failovers.
  • It could allow you to customize more.
When you need relational storage.
Not when you need warehousing.

[We're] using it as the primary database supporting multiple WordPress installations that are running on Google Cloud. It's being used for every site that we currently have on Google Cloud, and are in the process of moving more sites over to this platform. Having everything on Google's infrastructure makes everything easy to manage and Google Cloud SQL is insanely fast.
  • It's insanely fast.
  • Easy integration with Google Cloud hosted services.
  • It's backed by Google's infrastructure, which is always good.
  • Connecting to it for the first time is a little confusing.
  • An interface for interacting with the data would be awesome.
If you're hosting a site on Google Cloud, it only makes sense to make use of Google Cloud SQL for the database, as opposed to running a separate MySQL service on a VM. It's extremely fast and has resulted in a dramatic improvement in page load time across multiple sites.
