The Cloud Instances page allows exploring, adding, modifying, and removing the projected cloud instances of the migration project.
The Cloud Instances page contains:
Overview of the cloud instances.
The total cost of running the source instance on the cloud.
The configuration of the cloud instances.
Currently, TCO calculation is possible for Cloud SQL, Cloud Spanner, and AlloyDB target platforms.
The top row of the page shows three panels:
The Cloud Instance column in the Migrating tab on the Database Instances page lists the corresponding cloud instances for every database.
Below the summary panels, the Cloud SQL, Cloud Spanner, and AlloyDB tabs are shown. Use these tabs to create, remove, or edit a cloud instance of Cloud Spanner, Cloud SQL, or AlloyDB respectively.
To create an instance, click the Create button and configure the instance in the instance configuration window.
The flow for creating an instance depends on the target platform.
For information about creating Cloud SQL cloud instances, see Cloud SQL Cloud Instance.
For information about creating Cloud Spanner cloud instances, see Cloud Spanner Cloud Instance.
For information about creating AlloyDB cloud instances, see AlloyDB Cloud Instance.
Editing the instance allows:
Changing sources that are planned to be migrated to the cloud instance
Changing the configuration of the cloud instance.
Changes to an existing instance trigger the automatic re-calculation of TCO and may impact both cost and time projections.
To modify an instance:
In the Cloud SQL Cloud Spanner tab, click the instance name. The instance configuration window opens showing the current configuration of the selected cloud instance.
To add or remove sources selected for migration into the instance, in the Cloud Instance Information panel in the instance configuration window, select or clear the checkboxes of the sources.
To modify instance settings for the given instance, in the Cloud Instance Information panel in the instance configuration window, change values in the fields. The Cloud Instance Information panel also allows changing the target platform.
For information about currently supported source-target pairs, see Supported Sources and Targets.
Click the Confirm button to save the updates, or Cancel to discard them.
To remove a single instance or multiple instances, select the check boxes of the target instances from the list, and click Remove.
Then, in the pop-up window, click Confirm to complete removal.
When a cloud instance is removed, all sources set to migrate into that instance are removed from the migration plan and calculations. Those sources will revert to the Unassigned state on the Database Inventory page and become available again for selection to any projected pathway.
