How to Create, Manage and Run SQL Instances in Google Cloud SQL

Database admins and application developers can easily create a database on Google Cloud SQL, which helps manage mundane administrative tasks so that they can focus on what matters the most. From MySQL to Postgres databases, they can spin up an instance in just a few simple steps.

An instance can easily be created in just a few clicks by navigating to Cloud SQL in the GCP console, selecting the database of choice, and naming it and setting a password. Users can configure options like instance size, the number of cores, the amount of memory, and storage amount and type, from the same place. In addition, users can also isolate the database from failures by selecting the high availability option.

Once they click on create, the database instance spins up in just a few minutes. Once the instance is created, all the users would have to do is to connect to the database. Users can connect using Google App Engine, Compute Engine, or Container Engine or from anywhere else by authorizing the IP address or by using the Cloud SQL Proxy.

In just a few clicks and in a matter of minutes, users can easily spin up a database instance and manage routine administrative tasks.
