Store and manage data using a fully-managed, relational MySQL database. Google handles replication, patch management and database management to ensure availability and performance.Try it now
MySQL databases deployed in the cloud without a fuss. Google Cloud Platform provides you with powerful databases that run fast, don’t run out of space and give your application the redundant, reliable storage it needs.
Build and deploy for the cloud faster because Cloud SQL offers standard MySQL databases, the most popular open source database in the world. Instances available up to 16GB RAM, 100GB storage.
Our pay per use option makes it economical to get started. If you're running a lightly or sporadically used database, you'll save money by only paying for the time you access your data. The package option allows you to control your costs for more heavily loaded instances.
Security, Availability, Durability
Your data is replicated in many geographic locations as standard, and failover between them is handled automatically. This means your data is safe and your database is available even in the event of a major failure. We also manage your backups, making it easy for you to restore when needed.
Easier Migration; No Lock-in
Standard connections and tools such as mysqldump, MySQL Wire Protocol, and JDBC make it easier to migrate onto (or off!) Google Cloud Platform, and avoids lock-in.
Its easy to manage and access your instances through the cloud console or JSON API.
No worrying about replication, patch management or database management - we take care of it.

Google offers two billing plans for Cloud SQL:
- For developers with more traffic, we have package plans that offer a discount and help you predict your costs in advance.
- For developers with lightweight applications, we offer a flexible “per-use” pricing scheme. You pay only for the time you access your data. Get started with a cloud-hosted MySQL database for around $1 per month.
