I'd like to see more droplet options

I want a high CPU but smaller memory option to reduce cost. I'd like to see an 8CPU 2G option at least.

    Hi,

    If we did that you would end up paying the same amount as the current 8CPU option and more RAM, this is because CPU is one area where there is the least amount of flexibility dependent on the number of CPUs that a hypervisor supports.

    Because a single hypervisor is being split it up for virtual machines its resources aren't pooled across other machines this restricts arbitrary partitions of CPU, RAM and Disk Space and why all providers give these resources in some sort of balance with each other.

    Thanks
