Google Cloud SQL Instance Locations

When you create a Google Cloud SQL instance, you choose a region where the instance and its data are stored. To reduce latency and increase availability, choose the same region for your data and your Compute Engine instances, App Engine apps, and other services.

Regional Locations

A specific geographic location within a multi-region location. You can create a Cloud SQL instance in the following regions:

  • asia-east1 — Eastern Asia-Pacific
  • asia-northeast1 — Northeastern Asia-Pacific
  • europe-west1 — Western Europe
  • us-central1 — Central United States
  • us-east1 — Eastern United States


An isolated location within a region where you can create zonal resources such as Google Compute Engine instances. For example, a zone named us-central1-a indicates a location in the central United States. A zone within a region is independent of other zones in the same region.

You can choose your zone to keep your Cloud SQL instance close to your other Google Cloud Platform services.
