I much prefer just using RDS Aurora. Far fewer headaches. If I don't need low latency I'd use RDS Aurora no matter which cloud I'm hosted on. Otherwise I'll use hosted SQL.

The reason I mention this is that Kubernetes requires a lot of management to run so the best solution is to use GKE or things like that. If you're using managed k8s, there's little reason to not use managed SQL.

The advantages of k8s are not that valuable for a SQL server cluster. You don't even really get colocation of data because you're realistically going to use a GCE Persistent Disk or EBS volume and those are network attached anyway.
