Hi @jadayash,

Both are considered a good solutions for production. This means it’s entirely up to you and your preferences.

If you choose a Droplet, you have a lot more control on what’s going on on the Droplet, you can configure some specific setup that can’t be done on the App Platform. Having said that, you need to manage the Droplet as well as your App with a Droplet.

If you choose the App Platform, you’ll have everything taken care for you except your code. You’ll be in charge only for the deployment of your code and nothing else. However you won’t have that much control on what’s going on behind the scenes.
