We wanted to find out which of the most popular database services on two of the biggest cloud provider (AWS and Google), developers preferred to use.

More specifically, we wanted views from enterprises in the region (it’s hard to impossible to find data that’s specific to India.)

To simplify our quest, we looked at the most popular database services on AWS and then looked at the equivalent Google Cloud offering.

That’s how we came to pit AWS RDS and Google Cloud SQL.

For the uninitiated: Cloud SQL is a fully managed database service that makes it easy to set up and manage your relational PostgreSQL, MySQL, and SQL Server databases in the cloud.

It is ideal for: WordPress, backends, game states, CRM tools, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Microsoft SQL Servers.

Based on real feedback from companies in the APAC region, there are 11 reasons why Google Cloud SQL is better.

In addition, according to Stackshare and ITcentralstation, the biggest reason developers prefer Google Cloud SQL? Because it’s fully managed, easy to set up, easy to manage and it’s really scalable.

As one user says:

Its most valuable feature is that it’s scalable. I can start off with a base of a lot of data and move as much as I want and it’s the same as if asked to do a lot of infrastructure changes… it’s easy to use, simple, and user-friendly. The setup was straightforward. Just a couple of clicks, and we were done. My suggestion to anyone thinking about this solution is to jump into it head-first!
