Hi there,

Indeed it sounds like a good idea to use a separate Droplet for your database, the structure would look as follows:

That way you will decouple the database server from your web server.

Also what you could do for the import, rather than first uploading the 50GB file on the server and then importing it to MySQL, which means that you would need at least double the disk space, you could run the import remotely directly from your laptop:

Hope that this helps!
