Google Launches Google Cloud SQL a Relational Database as a Service

Google has just announced a new (lab) product: Google Cloud SQL which is Google’s Database-as-a-Service version of Amazon RDS—based on initial information, Google Cloud SQL could be characterized as a very basic/intro version of Amazon RDS.

Main features listed in the announcement:

  • Managed environment
  • High reliability and availability - your data is replicated synchronously to multiple data centers. Machine, rack and data center failures are handled automatically to minimize end-user impact. It also support asynchronous replication
  • Familiar MySQL database environment with JDBC support (for Java-based App Engine applications) and DB-API support (for Python-based App Engine applications). It even support data import and export using mysqldump
  • Simple and powerful integration with Google App Engine.
  • Command line tool
  • SQL prompt in the Google APIs Console

The service is free for now and Google promises a 30 days notice without giving any hints on the pricing model though.
