Since launch, we’ve been busy working on improving the performance, and adding features like scheduled backups and multihoming to increase availability and improve performance. We are also now offering more powerful instances with up to 4GB of RAM.
Today we are announcing our pricing, which will take effect on June 12th with two options to choose from:
- For developers who want to try out the service, or who have lightweight applications - we offer a flexible “per use” pricing scheme. For example, you can get started with a cloud hosted MySQL database for around a dollar per month. You pay for just what you use.
- For developers with more traffic, there are packages that offer a discount and help you predict your costs in advance.
Google Cloud SQL is currently in limited preview. If you want to give us a try, start here https://developers.google.com/cloud-sql/.
