should i move to DigitalOcean?

Posted May 7, 2016 2.3k views

I have a web app with a huge MySql database around 16gb & increasing in 10 tables and 200m rows

Currently i am on Hostgator pro dedicated server with 32gb RAM.

I am planning on moving to DigitalOcean with 32gb droplet.

My web app continuously crawl data from different apis and insert/update the data in database. It has quite high cpu usage and disk IO.

is it a good idea to move my site to DigitalOcean?
