Droplet selection for a simple ecommerce application

Posted July 12, 2018 2.6k views

I have no experience with VMs. I am making a simple e commerce application which will be scaled later. Currently I just need to deploy the node application which I used to create web apis and I need to deploy the MySQL database. I want to know, whatever droplet I choose, will I be able to deploy node and mysql database on it ?

Hello friend!

Any of our droplets are technically capable of those requirements. Note that you will need to install the software stack to run these things (MySQL, NodeJS). If I were to guess how much memory you need, I might say 2GB as a starting point, but you may know better than I do on that.

Kind Regards,
