VPS Performance (Digital Ocean improvements)

I’ve been running this VPS from Digital Ocean for a few months now and while I’ve been impressed with network speeds/performance, it seems CPU/disk times times were bad. Just updating or accessing a page on my wordpress site could take 30 seconds to 1 minute or longer. Running updates with “apt-get upgrade” would take 15 minutes (over 10 minutes stuck at “Building dependency tree”).

Then last night I noticed that they have double the memory available and now with SSD storage at my pricing plan. All I had to do was log into my account, select the resize option and restart the VM. I immediately noticed the difference, updating wordpress is very snappy. All in all I’m very happy with my Digital Ocean VPS.
