Replication options

This page describes the replication options offered by Cloud SQL.


Cloud SQL provides the ability to replicate a master instance to one or more read replicas. A read replica is a copy of the master that reflects changes to the master instance in almost real time.

Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL does not yet support replication from an external master or external replicas for Cloud SQL instances.
