Example to create a Google Cloud SQL instance

Creating a Google Cloud SQL instance in specific zone

If you create MySQL instance from the Google Developers Console, then you can only choose the zone by "No preference" or "Compute Engine Zone" or "Follow App Engine App". If you want to create a MySQL instance in specific zone, it seems that you better use gcloud command line, such as:

$ gcloud sql instances create i88-ca --tier D0 --region us-east1 

For more information: 

$ gcloud sql instances create --help
