Is it better to have many less powerful droplets behind a proxy or a few more powerful?
If I setup a proxy server using HAProxy and start multiple droplets behind serving webpages through nginx and Phoenix or Rails (or whatever). Is it better for me to start up twice as many 1GB/1CPU computers or half as many 2GB/2CPU computers? (Discarding the transfer limits/benefits.)
All request will fit well below the 1GB resource limit of the smaller server.
