Google Cloud SQL looks like an amazing deal at first glance. It’s a scalable database in the cloud provided by the company that practically invented the modern internet scale. However, performance and capabilities often fall short of expectations. Developers are often surprised by trade-offs in write scalability, consistency and cost.

MariaDB SkySQL, on the other hand, includes high availability features, multiple database topologies, more read and write scaling and cost advantage. Moreover, by becoming a MariaDB customer, you support the continued development of open source database technology.

In this presentation, you will learn:

• The basics of how Cloud SQL works, what is included and what is not included
• Cloud SQL limitations
• SkySQL features and offerings
• To compare and contrast MariaDB SkySQL and Google Cloud SQL in terms of features, price and capabilities

All attendees will receive $500 credit toward MariaDB SkySQL deployment.
