Key benefits

Be prepared for growth with quick, seamless scaling

Google Cloud databases scale seamlessly, letting you build cloud-native applications without worrying about whether your system can handle seasonal surges and unpredictable future growth.

Help developers move faster and focus on business value

From serverless management to auto-scaling, deep integrations to enterprise functionality, Google Cloud’s database portfolio delivers features and tools that help developers and operators ship faster and perform less maintenance.

Cloud database

Modernize, rebuild, or build from scratch

Whether you’re modernizing from an existing app, rebuilding an app, or building net-new, Google Cloud’s fully managed database services can help reduce your operational overhead and reduce time to value.

Use case
Modernize from Cassandra to Cloud Bigtable

If you lack in-house expertise in managing a Cassandra cluster, the move to fully managed Cloud Bigtable reduces your operational burden and read-repair work and makes scaling and replication easier. This reduces costs with pay-as-you-go pricing and seamless scaling up and down.

Use case
Use scalable relational database for variable-demand and high-growth industries

Managing sharded relational databases is difficult. Handling eventual consistency found in NoSQL databases is time consuming and error prone. Cloud Spanner is a fully managed and scalable relational database. It reduces complexity and enables seasonal and high-growth industries like retail, fintech, and gaming to scale up and down without sacrificing strong consistency and relational semantics.

Use case
Accelerate your development velocity

Whether you’re developing for the web or mobile, serverless Firestore is designed to provide a great developer experience and simplify and speed up your app development with live synchronization, offline support, and ACID transactions across hundreds of documents and collections.
