Easy to use

The Database Migration Service's guided experience takes you through migration creation with built-in, customized source configuration information, setup of multiple secure networking connectivity options, and built-in scripts for easy execution. By enabling validation before migrations are run, it ensures migration success.

Serverless experience

Eliminate the operational burdens of database migration. With Database Migration Service, there are no migration servers to provision, manage, or monitor, and auto-scaling ensures high-performance, uninterrupted data replication at scale.

Secure by design

Rest easy knowing your data is protected during migration. Database Migration Service supports multiple secure, private connectivity methods to protect your data in-transit. Once migrated, all data is encrypted by default, and Cloud SQL provides multiple layers of security to meet even the most stringent security requirements.

Cloud SQL manages 100% open source compatible MySQL and PostgreSQL, so you can lift-and-shift smoothly and with no surprises. Plus, Database Migration Service leverages the native replication capabilities of MySQL and PostgreSQL for highly accurate, high-fidelity migrations, at no additional cost.
