Power through your CPU and network-intensive workloads
Whether it is media streaming, gaming, AI, or data analytics, these virtual machines deliver the consistent performance and high throughput that your business needs
Leverage higher outbound data speeds in Premium CPU-Optimized Droplets to provide a faster and smoother app experience.
The mix of newer CPUs, faster network speeds, and NVMe SSDs makes it easy to scale your apps for data-intensive workloads.
When running multiple Droplets to power your app, Premium CPU-Optimized Droplets deliver powerful performance across all Droplets, enabling you to provide consistently superior experiences to your users.
With five times higher outbound network speeds when compared to their Regular variant, the new Premium CPU-Optimized Droplets make delivering high-quality digital experiences easier than ever.
Premium CPU-Optimized Droplets utilize some of the latest generations of Intel® Xeon® CPUs, providing consistently high application performance.
NVMe solid-state drives (SSD) use parallelism to deliver faster disk performance than with regular SSDs. Workloads that require a large number of transactions will have much lower latency with NVMe SSDs.
Unlike shared CPU Droplets, a dedicated CPU Droplet has guaranteed access to the full hyperthread at all times, delivering a consistently high level of performance.
When compared to a Regular CPU-Optimized Droplet, the Premium variant provides a substantial increase in performance.
Premium CPU-Optimized Droplets perform up to 5x faster in outbound network speed tests compared to DigitalOcean’s regular CPU-Optimized Droplets.
Premium CPU-Optimized Droplets deliver up to a 58% increase in single-core performance and a 20% increase in multi-core performance, when compared to Regular CPU-Optimized Droplets.
Tests find that Premium CPU-Optimized disk writes are 290% faster and disk reads are 65% faster when compared to Regular CPU-Optimized Droplets.
Premium CPU-Optimized Droplets deliver a significant performance boost to video streaming applications when compared to Regular CPU-Optimized Droplets*, and enhance the user experience considerably.
