Question

High Memory Droplets? No, create option for the poor lone devs

The introduction of Block Storage was amazing, as I could add as low as 1 Gig to my storage, extremely great for the poor developers.

When Memory storage was introduced, I thought it was gonna have a similar approach until I realized starting price is 120$ per month. That’s insane, I think. If I had 120$ to shed in the first place, I would have signed on to a bigger droplet from day one.

At the moment, I wish to pay for only 512 MB of additional memory for my droplet. CPU can remain the same, everything else can remain the same, just 512 MB of memory.

Please think of the poor guys too.

Hi @seanmavley I think its a great idea. I would certainly increase memory on some of my droplets if this feature was available.

Have you added this as a suggestion?
