I tested our application on a minimal droplet and migrated the data from the production sites which are with another host. Everything works great, now I’m ready to point the DNS to my droplet, but I need to upgrade my droplet first. Apparently that feature is not ready in NY or on some droplets, so I followed the advice from support to take a snapshot, destroy the droplet and build a bigger one from the snapshot. For one reason or another our application does not run 100% on the new droplet, so I need to provision the server from scratch.
What’s the best way to migrate data from one droplet to another that are in the same data centre? Can the data be moved faster via an internal network? I’ve got about 12 Gb of data to move.
