Pros

It was a good experience. It is also very stable and scalable, and its support is perfect."

Cons
"Google Cloud SQL still needs better connectivity to outside, existing data sources.""Google's technical support is good, but they tend to never reopen a case and to send us snippets from the publicly available documentation. It's not as helpful as you would expect, not just for Google Cloud SQL but for all of Google Cloud products.""I am yet to explore a lot of features that are present in this solution. However, it would be good if more documentation is available for this solution. This would help us in preparing for the certification exam and understand it better. Currently, we don't have much documentation. We do the labs for 20 or 25 minutes, but we can't capture and download anything."

More Google Cloud SQL Cons »

"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 licensing model is complicated and should be simplified.""The initial setup is complex. This is not a really easy solution. It is very large, so it's hard to install, but it's not impossible.""One of the things that I have noticed is that there are some services that will give you a hard time during implementation if you are looking at the documentation of Oracle. Sometimes the documentation information is quite limited. It's an aspect of the solution they could improve."
