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 are deprecating First Generation instances in favor of Second Generation.
On March 25th, 2020, we will fully decommission First Generation and no longer support it.
Migrating First Generation instances to Second Generation
Follow the instructions in Upgrading a First Generation instance to Second Generation to migrate existing First Generation instances.
