  • Fully managed, highly available relational databases. Create, configure, and use MySQL databases that live in Google's Cloud. We manage replication, encryption, patch management, and backups, so you focus on your applications and services.

  • Easy to use, flexible configuration. Create, configure, manage, and monitor your database instances with just a couple of clicks in our console or using a command line tool. Manage your instances using any applications and tools you already use with MySQL.

  • Exceptional security and integration with Google Cloud. All data is encrypted when stored and in flight on Google's network. Connections to instances are accepted only from authorized IP addresses, and can be secured with SSL, and MySQL user grants can control access at the database, table, or even column level. All data is replicated multiple times in multiple locations for great durability and availability. Databases can be created in the United States, European Union, or Asia.

    Cloud SQL is tightly integrated with Google App Engine , Compute Engine , Cloud Storage , and other Google services, so you can work across multiple products easily, get more value from your data, move your data into and out of the cloud, and get better performance.
