one click droplet for node+mongo combination

Hello, I see options for one click droplets for mongoDB and nodeJS. Are there any options for getting one click droplets for both of them installed on the same machine? Or is that something we’ll need to install ourself?

  • Yea you could get 2 droplets with each application. It’s better to keep the two separated imo as it is easier to scale afterwards.

  • I see. what are the advantages of having a separate droplet for mongo? are backups easier?

  • You can scale both VMs as needed independently of each other and the snapshots(backup images) will be independent as well. It’s convenient and will most likely save you some time should issues arise.

Hello, @digital1900

If the nodeJS and the MongoDB droplets are separate it will be easier for you to manage them and also you will have the option to enable backups for both droplets if this is needed of course.
