Need advice in comparing VPSDime and Digital Ocean.
We are currently using VPSDime and we are currently using their High RAM version which has the following offering for USD 21/month
- CPU = 4 core
- RAM = 18 GB
- HDD = 90 GB
- Bandwidth = 6 TB
For the same price of USD 20/month we are getting the following in Digital Ocean
- CPU = 2 Core
- RAM = 2 GB
- HDD = 40 GB
- Bandwidth = 3 TB
Now in our current server we are utilizing the following:
- CPU load average is 0.8 with peaks during backup at 1.5, would going to 2-Core be fine.
- RAM Usage: We are currently using 6 GB of RAM and another 6 GB for cache.
- HDD we are currently only using 16% or only 15 GB of HDD.
Can someone please advise as to whether we should shift to DO or stick with VPS Dime and also since i am no server admin, I am unable to know how shifting to DO benefit the speed of our web-based application or its not going to help at all.
Even if we are told to shift to DO then given our current usage, which plan should we choose from DO so that it suffices to our needs.
Looking forward to some insights on this issue from the experts.
PS: We are running a Web server on Nginx which hosts a python framework based app where DB is Mariadb.
