VPS for setting up a small programming project

Introduction

When you start with a small project that usually required a database digital ocean seems to be one of the best options to start with. The most amazing thing that digital ocean has it's a very fast harddrive that will lower the speed access of your database. We usually deploy on digital ocean scrapers or small application that uses sqlite and a python backend.

The starting package costs 5USD and it includes:

  • 512MB of ram.
  • 20 GB of SSD disk space.
  • 1 TB of monthly transfer.

Digital ocean allows you to create a small droplet with the any of the most popular linux distribution, like:

  • Ubuntu
  • FreeBSD
  • Fedora
  • Debian
  • CoreOS
  • CentOS

It also allows you to choose from different regions like, New york, Amsterdam, Singapore, Bangalore and more!.

If you think tha 512Mb of ram is short, the following list of application were able to be executed:

  • Django app with postgresql.
  • Flask using sqlite.
  • Node.js simple application.
  • GO like an API rest.

Anyways you can easily stop the droplet and increase the specifications to a higher one.
