Cloud SQL for MySQL

Cloud SQL has upgraded Replicating from an external server to version 1.1. You can now:

  • Replicate from sources where GTID is not enabled.
  • Allow Cloud SQL to copy data directly from an external server to a Cloud SQL replica.
  • Use new APIs that give you greater control to verify replication requirements, retry after making external server configuration changes, and remove the 30-minute limit for successful connectivity to an external server.
Cloud SQL for SQL Server

Cloud SQL for SQL Server enables you to set a default collation value for databases in an instance. This collation value is a default for sorting rules, case, and accent sensitivity. You can set this value through the Cloud Console, the gcloud command, and the Cloud SQL Admin API.

September 15, 2020

Cloud SQL now offers serverless export. With serverless export, Cloud SQL performs the export from a temporary instance. Offloading the export operation allows databases on the primary instance to continue to serve queries and perform other operations at the usual performance rate.

October 18, 2019

Cloud SQL for MySQL

Cloud SQL Second Generation MySQL instances have a new high availability (HA) configuration. The new HA configuration, based on Google's Regional Disks, eliminates replication lag and, combined with automatic failover, provides isolation from many types of infrastructure, hardware, and software failures. Regional disks also ensure that all previously committed database transactions are persisted and available after failover, right up to the time of the failure.

The new high availability configuration is the default. You can continue to use the API to create instances with the legacy high availability configuration (using failover replicas) until the upgrade of existing instances occurs in early 2020. To learn how high availability now works for Second Generation MySQL instances, see the Overview of the high availability configuration. To enable high availability on existing instances, or to create new instances with high availability, see Enabling and disabling high availability on an instance.
