ClearDB vs Google Cloud SQL: What are the differences?

Developers describe ClearDB as "Fault tolerant database-as-a-service in the cloud for your MySQL powered applications". ClearDB uses a combination of advanced replication techniques, advanced cluster technology, and layered web services to provide you with a MySQL database that is "smarter" than usual. On the other hand, Google Cloud SQL is detailed as "Store and manage data using a fully-managed, relational MySQL database". MySQL databases deployed in the cloud without a fuss. Google Cloud Platform provides you with powerful databases that run fast, don’t run out of space and give your application the redundant, reliable storage it needs.

ClearDB and Google Cloud SQL can be primarily classified as "SQL Database as a Service" tools.

Some of the features offered by ClearDB are:

      Firebase
      Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
      Amazon RDS
      Amazon RDS gives you access to the capabilities of a familiar MySQL, Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server database engine. This means that the code, applications, and tools you already use today with your existing databases can be used with Amazon RDS. Amazon RDS automatically patches the database software and backs up your database, storing the backups for a user-defined retention period and enabling point-in-time recovery. You benefit from the flexibility of being able to scale the compute resources or storage capacity associated with your Database Instance (DB Instance) via a single API call.
