GenieDB: Multi-master, multi-cloud, geo-distributed MySQL database. GenieDB’s DBaaS uses multi-master replication and multi-regional distribution on multiple cloud infrastructures (Amazon AWS, IBM Softlayer, DigitalOcean, Rackspace Cloud, and Google Cloud) to help reduce latency, eliminate downtime, and easily scale your database; 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.
GenieDB and Google Cloud SQL belong to "SQL Database as a Service" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by GenieDB are:
- Multi-master replication with auto-conflict resolution
- Geo-distribution across multiple regions and cloud providers using eventual consistency model with geo-compliance
- Auto-recovery and healing with re-synchronization
