DigitalOcean Droplets are Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) that run on top of virtualized hardware. Each Droplet you create is a new server you can use, either standalone or as part of a larger, cloud-based infrastructure.

Overview Quickstart How-To Resources Resizing a server, also known as vertical scaling, increases the amount of resources a server has. Increasing its memory and CPU improves its performance, and increasing the size of its disk increases the amount of data you can store.

There are two resizing options for Droplets:

CPU and RAM only. This option lets you increase or decrease the amount of CPU and RAM available to a Droplet.

Disk, CPU, and RAM. This option increases the amount of CPU and RAM available to a Droplet and permanently increases the size of a Droplet’s disk.

When you resize a Droplet, its price changes to match the cost of its new plan. See the Droplet pricing page for a full list of plans and prices.

Hi @jory87111,

I’ll recommend creating an account with DigitalOcean and checking out the droplet there.

Anyway, let’s begin with the requirements:

Main Droplet Firstly, the biggest droplet you can create, I think does have 16GB of Memory. If you need a bigger droplet, you might want to contact DigitalOcean’s support to see if it’s possible.

Regarding the Space you need for backups - 6TB storage 16 TB for file system Storage 16 TB for backup, I’ll recommend checking out the Spaces product here - https://www.digitalocean.com/products/spaces/

Database droplets Looking at your requirements, I’ll recommend going for the Managed Database product :

https://www.digitalocean.com/docs/databases/

With a node plan having the following specifications : 32 GB RAM, 8vCPUs and 600 GB of Disk space.

Regarding the Windows server, unfortunately at this time there is no native support for Windows OSs on Droplets. You may be able to achieve this however by creating your own custom Windows ISO image and then using that when creating your Droplet.

Currently, DigitalOcean only allows the deployment of Linux based OS’s.
