Multiple .net core apps and gitlab runner in basic 5$

Hi I need to setup hosting for a couple of .net core apps with db and an angular frontend app. Also need gitlab ci cd (setup runners). It seems that you can setup your own runners: Runners on DO This will be a playground with me as the only user. Will all of this fit in the basic 5$ droplet?

Hi there,

Generally speaking, there are no restrictions on how many applications you could run on a single server, it would depend on how much RAM your .NET applications would require.

For example, just roughly speaking, if one of your applications requires 100MB RAM, then you could probably run around 6-7 on the same server, with some RAM left for the operating system and your database.

You could also add a swap file so that you could have some extra buffer in case that your server runs out of RAM as per this tutorial here:

Hope that this helps. Regards, Bobby
