Best database management services, cloud hosts for small amount of data (<100GB)

I’ve recently got a short internship doing some data analytics for a local engineering firm. They don’t have much data and currently it’s all stored on local machines and hard disks in the form of excel spreadsheets. Part of my job (pre-data cleaning/analysing) will be to set up a cloud hosting service and database management system to store their data on the cloud instead. From my understanding and some intensive googling, I thought I’d first export the excel spreadsheets into a Mysql database then later export it to cloud sql (which is where I’ll retrieve the data from to build the models further down the line). Just want to know your thoughts/advice/better options for storing data on the cloud or maybe just let me know if I’m way off my mark for what the company wants. Thanks for reading this far 🙂
