At first, we didn’t consider an auto-migrating solution because there wasn’t a lot of complexity in the migration, especially for our small databases. We’d just have to bring the application down, export the database, import it to Cloud SQL, and bring it back up. That worked for most of our applications.
But toward the end of the process, two applications remained.
Through conversations with our product team and our Google contact, we learned about the Google Cloud’s Database Migration Service (which was in private preview at the time), which provides a serverless migration experience from MySQL to Cloud SQL for MySQL with continuous data replication, at no additional cost.
