I currently have a debian server on which with all the services in place that takes 600MB of Ram. I own the $5 droplet.

I would like to integrate Gitlab into my server, so I need to improve it.

What is the best $15 maximum solution that best suits my needs?

Hi @aurl,

I would say a normal 2GB droplet for $10/mo would be sufficient for your needs. Since Gitlab needs around 1GB RAM + swap as well and you got around 1GB of other apps, this would work.

Even tho, if this isn’t working properly you can always easily upgrade your droplet. Downgrading will be harder since you would need to make a new droplet. So starting at the bottom is the best for you I would suggest.
