My Org/team is too conservative to use this is they have to hire ops and too froogle to use spanner.

Why do you think that hosted cochroachdb would be cheaper then hosted spanner? Google has been optimizing spanner performance for years so I would expect that it will be cheaper to run for quite a while. Of course the markup can be different but I wouldn't expect it to make a huge difference.

Maybe training? Spanner's lack of UPDATE/INSERT/DELETE requires a team that's trained pretty specifically on how it works.

Frugal, froogle was the old name for google shopping.

Thanks. Frugal is exactly what I meant.
