Importing data into Cloud SQL

Hi guys,

As we known, to import data into Cloud SQL, we must use Cloud Storage as a staging ground. So I asked myself do we have another way to do that or not? I mean could we just ignore the Cloud Storage as a staging ground or not? Or do we have any other services that could be the staging ground instead Cloud Storage?

Many thank!!

Hey there,

I guess it makes sense to use Cloud Storage as a staging ground, as you basically just need somewhere to upload a large sqldump ready to import.

You may also be interested in GCP’s new Database Migration Service, which is currently Pre-GA. See for more info.

Hope this helps!
