  1. Managed PostgreSQL

    I would love you guys to have a managed PostgreSQL option for your Cloud SQL. It should offer the same features as MySQL where it automates replication, patch management and database management.

    • Mysql instances should also have a private network

      Managed mysql should have an internal ip address on the private network.

      • Allow Change Data Capturing on Cloud SQL Databases, using Replication slots for Logical Decoding

        Companies are investing into "data lakes" supported by Kafka or Google PubSub. They typically have their data in relational databases like PostgreSQL. In order to make the change on the relational data consumable for other applications (for building caches, search engines, messaging, ...), those companies need Change Data Capturing (CDC) on their database.

        Google should allow to add a Replication Slot in the managed Cloud SQL Postgres instance (https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.6/static/logicaldecoding-explanation.html) in order to allow to publish row changes to Kafka and/or PubSub.

        • Auto-whitelist IPs from Instance Group for SQL access.

          It would be great to have an option under `SQL -> instance details -> access control -> authorization` to automatically allow connections from all VMs in a compute engine Instance Group.

          Right now only explicit IP/ranges can be whitelisted, which makes autohealing/scaling somewhat less automatic, or "Cloud SQL proxy" which is pretty convoluted.

          If there's already a way to do this, it doesn't seem intuitive.
          Thanks :)

            • Offer access to Cloud SQL from Cloud functions

              Cloud SQL is currently not accessible from Cloud functions. This means that it is necessary to use an intermediary Google App Engine or similar method to bridge requests from functions to databases.

              • Update to MySQL 5.7.22

                The last update to MySQL on Cloud SQL was 5.7.14 in November 2016... It's kind of ridiculous that it hasn't been updated in 1.5 years. There are features in 5.7.21 that I need but can't use because of this.

                  • Bug: Cannot create instance with the same name as instance deleted before

                    1. Create Cloud SQL instance via gcloud command

                    $ gcloud sql instances create sample-instance --database-version MYSQL_5_6 --region asia-east1

                    2. Delete Cloud SQL instance created above (== sample-instance) from Web UI

                    3. Create Cloud SQL instance with the same name as instance created on step 1.

                    • Cross Region Read Replicas

                      It would be nice to have managed read replicas in different regions rather then having to setup/maintain your own replicas.

                                • Pay-Per-Usage Scalable SQL Service

                                  The current pricing schemes allows for either pay-per-usage Datastore or BigQuery, or pay-per-machine fully transactional relational Database. What I would want is a scalable pay-per-usage service for SQL, where I dont have to pre-provision servers, but just have a fast and reliable SQL service where I get billed per used CPU cycles / RAM / Network / Storage at the end of the month. Currently, our SQL servers idle outside of standard business hours, and we have to over-provision for some rare complex queries.
                                  As you are anyway starting to make Cloud Spanner SQL compatible and have full control over…

                                  • Promote ***** replica to master to have write access during outage

                                    I would love to have a MySQL ***** promoted to master during outgage.

                                    Also why are you moving the master to slaves zone and then pushing the ***** to another zone? This does not make sense. Why can't you just have master set in another zone.

                                    • Creating read replica even if first backup is not done yet

                                      I want to create read replica even there is no backup on master yet.

                                      I suggest some ways to implement:

                                      1. Create backup when user create read replica

                                      2. Reserve to create read replica when first backup is created

                                      3. Add option to create backup when user create instance
                                      $ gcloud sql instances create master --create-backup-immediately # other options...

                                      4. Allow users to create backup manually

                                      I appreciate if this feature is implemented.

                                      • Ability to immediate use a deleted cloudasql database

                                        Currently need to wait 24 hours before re-using a database instance name. Request the ability to override this setting and immediately reuse a database instance name.
