Hi,

I would like to know why don’t you allow to increase Droplets resources individually? And if it’s planned for the future?

Some people (like me for example) will need to increase RAM but keep storage as it is.

Just a suggestion.

On the Resize page I see the two main options:

  • CPU and RAM only (previously called Flexible)
  • Disk, CPU and RAM (previously called Permanent)

Screenshots showing the older naming are in the tut here:

By selecting “CPU and RAM only” I think you can increase RAM and keep storage (disk size) as is.

But I still have to increase CPU.
