    Hi there,

    DigitalOcean | Free $50 Credit just updated their plan. In most DC they have a new type of Droplet, and I didn't know that the old ones were with a SHARED vCPU's. Now they really offer Dedicated CPU's

    yeah saw the email for memory optimized droplets - expensive but if folks need that much memory at least it's there for the usage :)

    The price is not suitable for me, at least. I will end up in a dedicated server for this price.

    Better get a dedicated server.

    Better I selected 1x SSD instead of 6x SSD. That makes a big difference in the price.
    And some even give 40 CPU. They use the Intel XEON PLATIMUM with only 24 CPU.
    How they manage to do that, I don't know.

    :ROFLMAO: The CPU is a top end CPU from Intel but the frequency is not high, which may make the performance not good as some E3 12xx v6 (in the case that same vCPU counts)

    Yep,

    Got something from ServerHub - Dedicated Servers, Web Hosting, Virtual Private Servers and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) . On their site they have only XEON GOLD, not PLATINUM so asked them to build one. Even all DC I want they can place it.
    Asked him about Amsterdam, and some other locations and what kind of XEON PLATINUM they use, and they do built them custom if I want.

    Just asked them about these negative reviews, but they are only about their web hosting plans.
    But yeah, sales keep sales. , and they can build 3 of them in different DC's with a 2-year contract even with special prices. Can really select whatever I want (CPU - RAM - Nvme RAID)
