Cloud SQL

Fully managed database service for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server.

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, high availability, scalability, and convenience. Built on future-proof infrastructure that has Google’s private global network and world-class security, Cloud SQL takes care of the mundane tasks of managing databases so that you can focus on building great applications.

Focus on your application

Focus on your application

Let Google manage your database, so you can focus on your applications. Cloud SQL is perfect for a wide variety of applications like WordPress sites, ecommerce applications, CRM tools, and geospatial applications that are compatible with MySQL, PostgreSQL, or SQL Server.

Simple and fully managed

Simple and fully managed

Cloud SQL is easy to use. It automates all your backups, replication, patches, and updates—while ensuring greater than 99.95% availability, anywhere in the world. Cloud SQL’s automatic failover provides isolation from many types of infrastructure, hardware and software failures. Automatic storage increases add capacity as your database grows.

Performance and scalability

Performance and scalability

Cloud SQL delivers high performance and scalability with up to 30 TB of storage capacity, 60,000 IOPS, and 416 GB of RAM per instance. You can take advantage of storage auto-scale to handle growing database needs with zero downtime.

Reliability and security

Reliability and security

Easily configure replication and backups to protect your data. Go further by enabling automatic failover to make your database highly available. 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

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.



Easily scale up to 64 processor cores and more than 400 GB of RAM. As your data grows, Cloud SQL will automatically scale your storage. You can easily add read replica to handle increasing read traffic.

High performance

Designed to scale from small development workloads up to performance-intensive workloads, with up to 60,000 IOPS and no extra cost for IO.


Cloud SQL instances are accessible from just about any application. Easily connect from App Engine, Compute Engine, Kubernetes Engine, and your workstation. Open up analytics possibilities by using BigQuery to directly query your Cloud SQL databases.

Availability protection

Cloud SQL’s automatic failover provides isolation from many types of infrastructure, hardware and software failures. You can also recover your instance to a specific point in time using point-in-time recovery.


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.


Build and deploy for the cloud faster because Cloud SQL offers standard MySQL databases, ensuring application compatibility. Take advantage of external replication to migrate on-premises or other MySQL-compatible databases to Cloud SQL for MySQL with low downtime.
