  1. One of the problem we are facing is CloudSQL can't simulate a SQL Router. Which means we have to manually select Read-Replica for reading and Master for writing operations from the services

  2. Awesome content and overview of Cloud SQL. By the way I have a question where do we find this handouts/slides used in this video

  3. Fully packed video with lot of take aways. Looking forward for next installment @Jolene 👍🏻
