On Monday November 9, 2021: DO rolled out an upgrade to the load balancers that allows you to scale the number of nodes per LB, and thus scale the number of connections it can handle.
This included the language that each node could handle 10k Requests per second, 10k Simultaneous connections, and 250 SSL connections per second.
What wasn’t explicitly stated, but feels to be true: the previous LB configuration allowed you to have 10k SSL connections per second.
This bit us pretty hard. And having to pay 40x for the same level of support does not feel like an upgrade.
