If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Google Cloud SQL, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
On a scale of 10, I'd give it a 10. I would recommend everyone to check all of Google's Cloud portfolio and give it a shot.
We have 11 - 12 people working with it - all marketing people. On a scale from 1 to 10, 1 is the lowest and 10 the highest, I'd give it an 8.
Go for this solution because it gets the job done and it's cheap. You're up and running fast. That's what you want. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten. Not a perfect ten because nothing is perfect.
I need to make sure that my data is stored securely, transported securely and accessed securely. And the second thing is the number of options I have. Google Cloud SQL gives us more options. My suggestion to anyone thinking about this solution is to jump into it head-first!
