Hi Verdz. Technically both can be installed on the lowest standard droplet. Node.js expects at least 1.5GB per process, so you may need to configure your install to run on a low memory droplet: http://fiznool.com/blog/2016/10/01/running-a-node-dot-js-app-in-a-low-memory-environment/. The $10 plan is more suited for a Node.js application.

An empty Redis install utilizes 3MB of RAM while 1 million key value pairs utilizes around 85MB, so it will probably run fine along side your Node.js installation. https://redis.io/topics/faq

Thanks to all for the replies..
