For MySQL, I think you can only have one timezone set per mysql daemon. You could use something like
SELECT DATE_ADD(NOW(), INTERVAL 2 HOUR);
Dunno if that works for you.
I suppose that if you sign up for MySQL PS, it's possible they could set the timezone of your MySQL server to one different from the shared MySQL servers.
