Your apps’ performance and stability can depend greatly on the characteristics of the infrastructure you use. That’s why, over the past few years, DigitalOcean has introduced both General Purpose and CPU-Optimized Droplets. Yet, while these new Droplet types make DigitalOcean a great fit for all sorts of new use cases, they don’t address every business need. So DigitalOcean is making one more virtual machine instance type generally available: the Memory-Optimized Droplet, with memory and dedicated compute in a ratio of 8GB:1vCPU.
As of today, Memory-Optimized Droplets are Generally Available in the following data centers: New York (NYC1, NYC3), San Francisco (SFO2), and Amsterdam (AMS3).DigitalOcean expects to add these Droplet types in Singapore (SGP1) over the next few weeks, and other data centers in the coming months.
