    failover_target = false

  settings {
    tier              = "db-n1-standard-2"
    availability_type = "ZONAL"
    disk_size         = "100"
  # set `deletion_protection` to true, will ensure that one cannot accidentally delete this instance by
  # use of Terraform whereas `deletion_protection_enabled` flag protects this instance at the GCP level.
  deletion_protection = false
