hands-on labRun SQL Queries and Analyze Data with Google Cloud SQL
Google Cloud SQL is an easy-to-use fully managed service that allows you to configure and maintain SQL, MySQL, and PostgreSQL databases. You simply create the database cluster you want before moving on to creating tables and making queries. Updates, patches, backups, and replication are all taken care of automatically. Furthermore, you won’t need to worry about data encryption; Google Cloud SQL does it for you. For more information about what Cloud SQL provides, follow this link.
In this lab, you will create two tables in a provided Cloud SQL PostgreSQL database. You will also perform operations on it, monitor the resources usage and test that the atomicity property is respected by the database.
Upon completion of this lab, you will be able to:
- Establish a connection to a Cloud SQL database
- Perform operations on the database
- Monitor the resource usage of the Cloud SQL database
This lab is intended for:
- Google Cloud Associate Cloud Engineer (ACE) certification candidates
