Google Cloud SQL vs TempoDB: What are the differences?
What is 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.
What is TempoDB? Store & analyze time series data from sensors, smart meters, servers & more. TempoDB is the first database service for time series data (ex: measuring thermostat temperatures, network latencies, heart rates). Time series is a unique Big Data problem that breaks traditional databases (MySQL, MongoDB, etc). Today, businesses spend months and millions attempting to build solutions to manage all this data and yet still fail to store as much as they need or analyze it effectively. TempoDB is a purpose-built database service that enables businesses to store and analyze massive streams of time series data, so they can learn from the past, understand the present, and predict the future.
Google Cloud SQL and TempoDB can be categorized as "SQL Database as a Service" tools.
Some of the features offered by Google Cloud SQL are:
- Familiar Infrastructure
- Flexible Charging
- Security, Availability, Durability
On the other hand, TempoDB provides the following key features:
- Flexible, powerful API
- Store as much high resolution (1 ms max) time series data as you need for long range historical analysis
- We guarantee data availability and protect against loss by replicating each live datapoint 3x and using geographically distributed backup environments
