Managed Database or Droplet?
I am currently running 1 droplet and within that it’s running 1 web server and 1 database (MySQL).
My plan is to move out the database into a server of it’s own.
The database is still fairly small, it’s only at 250MB.
However, I am not sure which to pick, either a managed MySQL database or another Ubuntu droplet that only runs MySQL database.
What are the pros and cons of running a managed database versus running a droplet?
