Senior Enterprise Architect with 501-1,000 employees
Jun 26 2017

What is most valuable?

* Automated backups * Read replicas * Integration with other GCP services

How has it helped my organization?

Reduced management overhead on the DB side; scripted env-ts (setup and tear down of the infrastructure within GCP).

What needs improvement?

* Accessibility over internal network, rather than by public IP only * MySQL clustering (rather than replication or failover only)

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing is not applicable; pricing is reasonable. Slightly more expensive than corresponding Google Compute Engine instance.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Hosted MySQL DB, maintained by DBA; reason for switch: overall move to the cloud of other GCP components.

What other advice do I have?

Most benefit would be for organizations which are moving other services to Google Cloud.
