Fully managed relational database services
Cloud SQL is a fully managed database service that makes it easy to set up, maintain, manage, and administer your relational PostgreSQL, MySQL, and SQL Server databases in the cloud. Cloud SQL offers high performance, scalability, and convenience. Hosted on Google Cloud Platform, Cloud SQL provides a database infrastructure for applications running anywhere.
Focus on your application
Let Google manage your database, so you can focus on your applications. Cloud SQL is perfect for WordPress sites, ecommerce applications, CRM tools, geospatial applications, and any other application that is compatible with MySQL, PostgreSQL, or SQL Server.
Simple and fully managed
Cloud SQL is easy to use. It doesn’t require any software installation. It automates all your backups, replication, patches, and updates — while ensuring greater than 99.95% availability, anywhere in the world.
Performance and scalability
Cloud SQL delivers high performance and scalability with up to 10 TB of storage capacity, 40,000 IOPS, and 416 GB of RAM per instance.
Reliability and security
Easily configure replication and backups to protect your data. Go further by enabling automatic failover to make your database highly available (HA). Your data is automatically encrypted and Cloud SQL is SSAE 16, ISO 27001, and PCI DSS v3.0 compliant and supports HIPAA compliance.
Discounts without lock-in
Cloud SQL offers per-second billing, automatic sustained-use discounts, and instance sizes to fit any budget. Database instances are easy to stop and start. There is no up-front commitment, and with sustained-use discounts, you’ll automatically get discounted prices for databases that run continuously.
Cloud SQL features
Cloud SQL is a fully managed MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server database service.
Easily scale up to 64 processor cores and more than 400 GB of RAM. Quickly scale out with read replicas.
Designed to scale from small development workloads up to performance-intensive workloads.
Live migration makes maintenance of our underlying infrastructure transparent. For isolation from failures, high availability provides continuous health-checking and automatically fails over if an instance is not healthy.
Replicated, managed, and backed-up, so you can make better use of your time.
Build and deploy for the cloud faster because Cloud SQL offers standard MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server databases. Use standard connection drivers and built-in migration tools to get started quickly.
Cloud SQL data is encrypted when on Google’s internal networks and when stored in database tables, temporary files, and backups. Cloud SQL supports private connectivity with Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), and every Cloud SQL instance includes a network firewall, allowing you to control public network access to your database instance.

Partnerships and integrations
Take advantage of our growing partner ecosystem and tools to make working with Cloud SQL even easier. Our partners can help you streamline the process of loading your data, create rich visualizations for meaningful insights, and monitor and manage your databases.
Cloud SQL gives us more time to work on products that provide value to our customers. Our individual teams, who are building micro services, can quickly provision a database on Cloud SQL.Tim Kelton, Co-founder and Cloud Architect, Descartes Labs
We’re excited about the flexibility Cloud SQL brings to support quick development cycles that foster innovation, while scaling easily when required.James Donkin, General Manager, Ocado
