When you create a 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 are specific geographic locations within a multi-region location. You can create a Cloud SQL instance in the following regions:
|Region Name||Region Description|
Zones are sub-locations within a region. For example, a zone named
us-central1-a indicates a zone within the
us-central1 region. A zone 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. For highly-available instances (regional instances), you can choose your primary zone, but not your secondary zone.
For more information about zones, see Geography and Regions.
