This is a very serious race in which Charlie Custer from Cockroach Labs attempts to set up a cloud database faster than he can microwave a bowl of ramen.
Do you think you could set up a new cloud SQL database in less time than it takes to cook a bowl of ramen?
We decided to put it to the test, starting from registering a new account, spinning up a free CockroachDB cluster, and connecting to it via the SQL shell. The race is on, and you'll never guess who won!
