Transcript

So you should now have enough understanding to begin using Cloud SQL on your own. I highly recommend checking out some of our labs and also playing around with it on your own account. If you are going to be doing any sort of cloud development, this will give you important experience.

Before I wrap things up, let’s quickly recap the main points that were covered:

First, you learned that Cloud SQL is a fully managed database service for MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQL Server. It requires no manual provisioning, has very low maintenance, and can automate most tasks for you, including backups and storage increases.  It also fully supports data encryption (both at rest and in flight) and allows you to achieve High Availability with the use of cross-regional replicas.

I demonstrated how to create a new database. How to add tables and import records. And how to write and run queries.  I showed you how to migrate data from an external database into Cloud SQL. And how to manage users and create read replicas.

Well, that’s all I have for you today. Remember to give this course a rating, and if you have any questions or comments, please let us know. Thanks for watching, and make sure to check out our many other courses on Cloud Academy!
