Emerging from beta, Google's cloud databases are ready for business workloads.

Google's managed databases now come with a guarantee, in the form of a Service Level Agreement, or SLA.

On Tuesday, Cloud SQL, Cloud Bigtable, and Cloud Datastore -- databases offered through the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) -- are set to shed their beta designation, a scarlet letter among enterprises, and enter general availability. In so doing, they will qualify for SLAs like other production-ready GCP services.

"If you look across public cloud vendors," said Fausto Ibarra, director of product management for data analytics, storage, and machine learning at Google, in a phone interview, "usually they don't offer any kind of SLAs for cloud database services."

Amazon DynamoDB, for example, presently doesn't offer an SLA. However, other services offered by public cloud vendors like Amazon Relational Database Service and Microsoft Azure SQL Database do include SLAs.

This database maturity milestone coincides with the arrival of performance, security, and support improvements for other GCP services. These include:

This last improvement was actually announced in early August, but redundancy in the context of databases tends to be a good thing. Google may not have been the first company to have embraced the zero-knowledge approach to customer data, but its adoption of CSEK is still a positive sign for cloud security.
