Cons
I would like to see better integration with all the different tools on the platform.The most vulnerable problem with Google SQL is that while you can customize your access control list, it provides you with a public IP address.

Documentation is difficult to find. Since we're experienced with Oracle technology, we have also found many errors in it. Not everything is 100% accurate.The interface can be difficult and there may be so many features that users and even vendors are unaware that they exist.The direct scaling is a feature that has room for improvement. I would like to see virtual management machines that can scale storage well with zero downtime. The backup option and patching would then be much easier to do.In the next release, I would like to see a framework for memory management.Some of the technical features could be improved. They have a problem with some of the object types. I think this is one of the issues which is needed to be improved.I would like to see a better dashboard for the storage. It need to be more complete overall.My favorite option – Multitenant – should be available for some pluggable databases in all editions, without any fee.An 8GB download for software is far too big. Nowadays it should be possible to simply use RPM packages on Linux/Unix.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It's really cheap. It wouldn't be more than, I believe it's around 50 euro per month for running a cloud SQL.The pricing is very much an important factor as to why we use this solution.

The pricing may seem expensive, but the value corresponds to the quality of the product.The price depends on the solution you choose: standard, enterprise, or high performance. For example, enterprise can start between 0.4 an hour up to 1,800. Additional fees also depends on what package you choose. Your feels will be different if you choose the standard, enterprise, high performance, or extreme package. You will pay in relation to what option you ask for. The price is very good if you compare it to other databases.The licensing is a nightmare. Tons of options which need to be licensed individually, and no real offering for VMware or other Hypervisors.There should be a standard way to license the database in a virtual environment (e.g. VMware) and there should be a low-end version (like Standard Edition One) again.
