We currently support some Google Cloud Provider regions for creating databases and branches. GCP support is in beta, so there are some limitations, which will be covered in this document.
Available GCP regions
- (Beta) GCP us-central1 (Council Bluffs, Iowa) —
- (Beta) GCP us-east4 (Ashburn, Virginia) —
- (Beta) GCP northamerica-northeast1 (Montréal, Québec, Canada) —
GCP beta limitations
As GCP region support is currently in beta, there are some limitations to its use.
You currently cannot create read-only regions using GCP regions. In addition, if your production database branch is using a GCP region, you cannot spin up a read-only replica using an AWS region.
Using AWS and GCP regions
If you have a database with branches in both AWS and GCP regions, you cannot restore backups between those AWS and GCP regions using our backup tool. It is, however, possible to manually import a backup using a MySQL dump.
