Keeping data safe is the top responsibility of anyone running a database. Learn how the Google Cloud SQL team protects against data loss. Cloud SQL is Google's fully-managed database service that makes it easy to set up and maintain MySQL databases in the cloud. In this session, we'll dive into Cloud SQL's storage architecture to learn how we check data down to the disk level. We will also discuss MySQL checksums and infrastructure Cloud SQL uses to verify that checksums for data files are accurate without affecting performance of the database.
