Add CloudSQL service

Similar to the service found on Google Cloud, provide a managed CloudSQL service to support things like PostgreSQL & MySQL. They would be priced by total storage size available, and have high availability configuration options just like AWS/GCP.

        This is a big thing that’s holding me back from moving my entire infrastructure from GCP to DO. We had previous issues managing SQL on bare metal, and these managed solutions are super convenient.

        Just to be clear, this would be a managed service and you wouldn't need to create a droplet for your CloudSQL instance. It's a separate SQL package that is run externally to your droplets that you can access from your droplets, just like https://cloud.google.com/sql/docs/
