Google Cloud SQL Offers Per-Hour Or Per-Day Charging

Google has officially released its managed online MySQL service, promising a 99.95 per cent uptime and supporting databases up to 500GB in size.

The service is designed for use with Google’s existing App Engine and Compute Engine platforms providing an online storage service. Google offers a choice of two pricing models. You can pay per use, with fixed hourly charges based on the size of the database instance plus monthly charges for storage and I/O charges per million transactions. Or you can pay a per-day packaging charge for a service with a set amount of RAM, storage and I/O.
