    In getting ready for LE testing I needed to build a test system.

    DO has a option to resize a droplet, and I have been using it in my testing.
    I normally use a 512Mb droplet, but Centmin needs 1Gig to build, so I resize to 1Gig then drop back down to 512Mb for testing.

    This time when I went to resize to install Centmin I 'slipped' and 'accidently' hit the 64Gb / 20 core instance.

    Install went great and here are my install stats...

    Code (Text):
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Total Curl Installer YUM Time: 145.3086 seconds
    Total YUM Time: 57.854076268 seconds
    Total YUM + Source Download Time: 90.6370
    Total Nginx First Time Install Time: 55.8479
    Total PHP First Time Install Time: 159.6760
    Download Zip From Github Time: 41.7783
    Total Time Other eg. source compiles: 273.5171
    Total Centmin Mod Install Time: 579.6780
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Total Install Time (curl yum + cm install + zip download): 766.7649 seconds
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    


    Almost 13 minutes. The 64Gb / 20 core droplet is $0.952/hr

    EVA2000 did an install on a unknow host with 512Mb / 2 core in about 16 minutes.

    Not really cost effective unless EVERY second counts. But it was a fun thing to test for $1!!

    haha that's one big slip.. luckily you're not using their api and had done this unattended :)

    yeah DO use slower clocked Xeon E5 2630L low voltage processors last I checked. So while many cores helps with regular web traffic, source compiles for Centmin Mod need many faster clocked processors generally.
