Replicate GCP MySQL to Snowflake in minutes 

Do you want a quick and simple way to transfer data from GCP MySQL to Snowflake? If yes, then you can migrate your data with an efficient ETL tool: Daton.  

Businesses need to utilize their data to stay ahead of increasing competition and make data-driven decisions. The massive volumes of data obtained from different tools require fast and secured storage. Unfortunately, the cost to build and maintain a scalable, fast and secure physical storage solution is usually too high. So, now the companies are using cloud databases like MySQL. But managing, replicating and extracting data from these databases is complex. Hence cloud platforms like Google Cloud Platform (GCP) have made a solution for managing MySQL databases. GCP MySQL provides seamless control on your MySQL database. 

Data-savvy companies are reducing the time & effort of reporting and analyzing their massive volumes of data from several databases and cloud storage. They use ETL tools like Daton to load data from these Cloud platforms to data warehouses like Snowflake where you get a consolidated view for faster and accurate reporting. 

Why integrate GCP MySQL to Snowflake? 

Modern-day companies use cloud storage solutions like Google Cloud Platform to handle their databases. These storage solutions facilitate collaboration and consolidation, especially when multiple teams work in several offices across different countries. In addition, the databases will automatically be replicated, backed up by secure servers, reducing data theft and loss. Combine data from GCP MySQL with other databases like sales sheets, COGS, Amazon Aurora to simplify data analysis and reporting. However, manual data integration takes much time to execute manually, and the reports are not always accurate. Thus, top companies resort to ETL tools like Daton to replicate data from GCP MySQL to Snowflake. It is a highly automated ETL Tool that easily loads data from several data sources to cloud data warehouses without coding. 

GCP MYSQL Overview 

Google Cloud SQL is a fully managed Google Cloud database service that helps perform administrative tasks like replication, database and patch management. Google Cloud SQL provides the flexibility to set up database infrastructure; so, you can conveniently shift existing databases to Cloud SQL. The replication feature can be used to scale up, use read replicas, or migrate the My SQL database. The Backup feature can help revive lost data to a Cloud SQL database. You can also convert from a backup via Google Cloud SQL. You can customize the fully managed option to the PaaS cloud service model and for cloud-native applications. Also, directly manage the SQL database for larger deployments with enterprise-grade requirements by running a Google Compute Engine instance and deploying a MySQL image on it. This self-managed IaaS model gives you complete control of your MySQL database on GCP, allowing edits in database configurations. 

Snowflake Overview 

Snowflake is the most popular data warehouse to offer a cloud-native, petabyte-scale service. The software provides a query engine for all users allowing SQL based querying and a host of business intelligence tools to connect with the service. Snowflake is built on a scalable infrastructure, supports big data and massive workloads. The powerful management console enables connections from any SQL client. Snowflake service also supports REST APIs allowing developers to work in real-time with simple API calls. It is compatible with several BI and visualization tools. 

How to replicate GCP MYSQL to Snowflake? 

There are two ways in which you can replicate GCP MySQL to Snowflake.
