Question

How long can I expect a droplet to stay up?

I’ve had problems with other hosting companies rebooting my machine for maintenance, which tends to screw things up. How long can I expect a droplet to stay up without being involuntarily rebooted?

Thanks

At least a few months, usually longer. A reboot should not screw things up though.

I think the longest I have had mine in continues operation is 30 to 45 days. Its always me updating the kernel don’t think I have every seen a random reboot.
