DO Ideas 2

Offer droplets with flexible RAM / CPU relation, like 10GB RAM | 2 CPU and 10 CPU | 2GB RAM

That would enable users to better architect projects.

    The pricing we've setup is based on unit economics so its pretty set we can't unfortunately tune the specific parameters without keeping them joined together.

    How about updates like +1CPU | +1GB?
    I don't need so much storage, it's more important to have speed. You offer the best price for the 1GB server but the 2GB server has the same price I pay with and several others
    How about a "special power" package with 2gb/2cpu/20gb for $15?

    Unfortunately that is not possible as it would lead to a lot of resources that aren't utilized on the hypervisor which if offered would effectively raise prices and ultimately lead back to the same place.

    If you need more storage choose the size that provides it, otherwise using less CPU and RAM and more storage you would end up paying that same rate.

    That is why we are able to offer the pricing we do.
