New to Digital Ocean and cloud in general (only used shared and VPS hosting)
Currently use cPanel on a VPS (with LiteSpeed) and was thinking about a managed MySQL service as think that may run data-intensive queries faster than MySQL within a droplet. Does having more vCPUs in a managed database help with speed?
The current MySQL database is around 6GB and from my understanding, having RAM greater than this will also help with performance as everything essentially will become in-memory.
Would there be any performance gain/loss from a managed database when having a droplet running cPanel? Can cPanel default to use the managed database for things like PHPmyAdmin and for creating databases and database users?
Is it easy to push a cPanel migration database from a droplet to the managed database?
