    I like how it says "More speed, same simplicity" right before this screenshot:

    Doesn't this just add complexity and more costs for DO? I never understood this type of plan differentiation on cloud platforms. I get having high CPU plans compared to high RAM plans, but this?

    Still, nice to see NVMe and AMD being added. DO has been the most reliable provider for me since I started using them in 2013.

  • DigitalOcean is going rather into a complex system like AWS and one day you'll need to hire a DO-certified "engineer" to handle the droplets and other tech-savvy things even to run a wordpress instance on DO.

    That's an ultimate goal of any hosting company. To create whole ecosystem of services. Make customer dependant. Complexity is just a subproduct.

    DO have modified the processor model name exposed to VM thus the real processor model name is hidden

    So, basically they can say whatever they want, it's not verifiable.

    I highly doubt lying about the CPUs they use is high on their to-do list. They tell you what they are on the link at the top.

    I've been moving away from DigitalOcean over recent years, primarily due to the aging CPUs. This doesnt really impress me IMHO. While I dont doubt the market for a "High Frequency" style product (i.e for NodeJS applications or Minecraft) after being continually disapointed with performnace slip this doesnt solve the underlying issue (low performance on general purpose product).

    That implies a bit more evil intent than is really there. Virtualized CPUs don't always pass through everything to the guest.

    I'm all for sticking it to DO but not enough to sacrifice myself on the altar of 1&1 lol

    I am sure they do but once you are an IONOS customer you stay an IONOS customer, whether you want to or not. You are not just paying them cash, you are giving them your soul. Honest, read their terms.

    Good way to market a price hike as a feature upgrade.

    Getting current gen processors for new deployments from a provider which is growing significantly is the norm, not a premium feature.

  • @Lee said: Honest, read their terms.

    That's insane! I never read such humongous terms online. Even PayPal has less. Pure insanity.

  • Good idea to announce days before filing an application to go public.

  • My previous VPS with DO has GB5 scores 758, so this new line is just slightly better and cannot compete with Vultr on CPU performance.
    And for example Linode already adopt Epyc 7542 which has better performance.

    These were done at the same time after updating Ubuntu 20.04.2.0 (and waiting until load is zero).

    Intel VMs have better disk speeds, not sure why. AMD VMs have slightly better CPU benchmarks.

    Note that these CPU benchmarks are slightly lower than when this thread was started, see @Chocoweb run above.

    What would you go with, slightly better CPU benchmark or faster disk speeds?
