Recently, we announced the new Database Migration Service (DMS) to make it easier to migrate databases to Google Cloud. DMS is an easy-to-use, serverless migration tool that provides minimal downtime database migration to Cloud SQL for MySQL (Preview) and Cloud SQL for PostgreSQL (available in Preview by request).

In this post, we’ll cover some of the tasks you need to take to prepare your MySQL database for migration with DMS.

What types of migrations are supported?

When we talk about migrations, usually we either do an offline migration, or a minimal downtime migration using continuous data replication. With Database Migration Service (DMS) for MySQL, you can do both! You have an option for one-time migration or continuous migration.
