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|
* For customers using the São Paulo region, all regional product SLAs will remain in force. However, multi-region and cross-region functionality spanning North America and South America may temporarily have reduced availability or performance.
Zones are isolated locations within a region where you can create zonal
as Second Generation instances. For example, a zone named
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.
