As technology continues to advance, one of the greatest innovations within information technology has been the Cloud. Useful in businesses and organizations throughout the world, it has revolutionized the way information technology works.
As a result, many companies can now focus more on building applications rather than configuring replications, applying patches and updates, and managing backups.
When the first generation of Cloud SQL was launched in October 2011, it was hailed as a great innovation within the industry. However, as the next generation prepares to take its place within the IT world, there are many reasons to be excited.
Improved Performance with Google Cloud SQL
What sets the second generation managed MySQL offerings on Cloud SQL apart from its predecessors is its speed and reliability.
The second generation, which is now seven times faster than the original, allows for not only better performance but also improved scalability per dollar.
By doing so, the price/performance ratio increases substantially, making it a much better option for companies everywhere.
In addition to speed and reliability, increased flexibility is also part of the package.
Some examples of the increased flexibility for Cloud SQL include:
- Using standard drivers such as Connector/NET to connect from any application
- Using such tools as MySQL Workbench to manage various applications
- Ability to have low-latency connections from Compute Engine and Managed VMs
Why Use a Managed MySQL Database?
For customers who need speed, reliability, and flexibility with various database applications, a Managed MySQL database is the best bet for a number of reasons. First and foremost is the price, which is very reasonable by today’s standards.
Whether a database is used 24/7 or on a more infrequent basis, there’s no need to worry. Those that are used less are simply charged by the minute, allowing for numerous savings.
