New droplet or droplet upgrade?
I am not yet in this situation, but it won’t be long…
I am running an Ubuntu LAMP server with a few instances of wordpress on it. As I keep getting new clients, obviously I am going to eventually need to either upgrade the current server or spin up a new one to keep the user experience acceptable. Either my Google-fu is weak today or there isn’t anyone asking this question, so I thought I’d pose it to my peers here.
Basically what I am wondering is this - is there a compelling reason to go with either a server upgrade or new server droplet - the dollars work out pretty much the same no matter what I do, so I’d like to look at it from a standpoint of performance benefit - or maybe ease of maintenance… or just whatever!
Anyone out there made this decision before?
