Doctrine 2 vs Google Cloud SQL: What are the differences?
Doctrine 2: An object-relational mapper (ORM) for PHP 5.3.2+ that provides transparent persistence for PHP objects. Doctrine 2 sits on top of a powerful database abstraction layer (DBAL). One of its key features is the option to write database queries in a proprietary object oriented SQL dialect called Doctrine Query Language (DQL), inspired by Hibernates HQL; Google Cloud SQL: 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.
Doctrine 2 belongs to "Object Relational Mapper (ORM)" category of the tech stack, while Google Cloud SQL can be primarily classified under "SQL Database as a Service".
"Great abstraction, easy to use, good docs" is the top reason why over 9 developers like Doctrine 2, while over 12 developers mention "Fully managed" as the leading cause for choosing Google Cloud SQL.
Implisit, Policygenius, and OTOBANK are some of the popular companies that use Google Cloud SQL, whereas Doctrine 2 is used by orat.io, zombakka, and Vend. Google Cloud SQL has a broader approval, being mentioned in 71 company stacks & 28 developers stacks; compared to Doctrine 2, which is listed in 35 company stacks and 12 developer stacks.
