Basic Droplets

Basic Droplets have the most efficient CPU usage at a lower cost for workloads that underuse dedicated threads. They’re ideal for bursty applications that can handle variable levels of CPU.

General Purpose Droplets

General Purpose Droplets have a balanced ratio of memory to dedicated CPU, suitable for a wide variety of production workloads. They’re best for general purpose workloads that require dedicated computer power.

CPU-Optimized Droplets

CPU-Optimized Droplets provide a 2:1 ratio of memory to CPU. This configuration is optimal for applications that demand fast, consistent performance from dedicated vCPUs, but are not so memory-intensive that they require the additional RAM provided by General Purpose Droplets.

Memory-Optimized Droplets

Memory-optimized Droplets provide 8GB RAM for each vCPU. The additional memory can help you avoid excessively swapping to disk or getting out-of-memory errors, both of which significantly impact your application's performance and stability.

Storage-Optimized Droplets

Storage-Optimized Droplets use NVMe (non-volatile memory express), which is an interface protocol explicitly built for modern SSDs. It takes advantage of parallelism to deliver disk performance that can be order of magnitude faster than our regular SSDs.
