Cloud SQL for MySQL First Generation shutdown

This page has the timetable for the shutdown of First Generation instances and points to resources for migrating First Generation instances to Second Generation.

In 2016, we started offering Second Generation instances to Cloud SQL customers. Second Generation instances offer improved performance, availability, and storage capacity. In October, 2018, we released a tool for upgrading First Generation instances to Second Generation. On January 29, 2019, we deprecated First Generation instances in favor of Second Generation.

On March 25th, 2020, we fully decommissioned First Generation and no longer support it.
