Custom Droplet Resources

An option for a customized droplet. Your pre-definded droplets are fantastic (we can spin them up instantly, on the same hand you can scale efficiently)


The ability to define custom resources for a droplet would be fantastic...if the price has to be higher that is fine.

        What do you guys think of the idea of being able to increase RAM capacity independently from CPU, as it stands now on the resize optipns?

        I am currently in a similar situation where I don't need more storage or CPU rather more RAM.

        This RAM addition could be as little as from maybe 512 MB upwards for perhaps 1$ per month for extra 512 RAM.

        Completely agree, I don't need much disk space or indeed RAM, but need more cores

        Bsdically this would allow users to completely customize a droplet. Users could set the amount of RAM, Drive Space, and CPU they need, and pay for exactly what they need.

        I have 2 sizes that are important to me (that are not represented in the current scheme).

        2 vCPU 16G
        8vCPU 2G

        I also think it would be fair for us to be able to aggregate bandwidth because you only have 1-2 units pumping out bits.

        Diskspace is not strictly important but 20G is a lower-bound for usefulness.

        I think what i want fits here: need to try haddop on digital ocean for 2months

        i need 8GB but with very little data transfer (initial transfers - 2-3 then minimal one user starting and monitoring jobs)

        are there any more flexible plans where we can lowr the data bandwidth, hard drive?
        8GBM RAM
        2 core
        25 gb SSD
        100GB trasfer

        Be good if u put this on your road map, will allow evaluators like me some leeway.

        would love if you can give facility to decide the resources that we want,
        current predefined packs are fantastic, but customization can help users more with individual needs

        I could then make tutorials for, say, a podcast media server i my blog and redirect viewers to D.O. so they can spin up a droplet with all the setup already done. D.O. wins, I win, my viewers win.

        Love the idea!

        And to take one step further, you could offer contrasting, intermediate "Expanded Storage" plans that would swap the added cores for additional HD space.

        Thanks! I had already backed that idea. However, it doesn't address the case where I need twice as much RAM per-CPU than currently offered.
