In a bid to deliver you the latest & greatest technology for even better performances on every level, we’re excited to announce that DigitalOcean’s Premium Droplets with faster Intel CPUs and NVMe SSDs are now available on the ISHost Platform. With these Premium Droplets, you can expect better and faster performances at an entry-level price point.

ISHost users have been requesting the addition of DO Premium Droplets to take advantage of Intel’s latest hardware to power their online presence since February 2021.

And after working round the clock to ensure a stable launch, you can now choose the new Premium Droplet from the ISHost Platform with the same ease and convenience you’ve been familiar with for so long!

The Tech Behind Premium Droplets

These Intel Premium Droplets run on 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (Cascade Lake architecture). The Intel Xeon processors are ‘disruptive by design’ and set new capabilities across compute, memory, security, and storage.

DO Premium Droplets have enhanced memory performance with 2933 MHz memory frequency, which significantly improves server-side cache workloads and in-memory databases. And as far as disk performance is concerned, these Premium Droplets use NVMe SSDs that deliver notably faster performance than regular SSDs and much lower latency.

But what does all that mean for you? Well, in short, if you’ve been satisfied with hosting your online dreams on ISHost using DigitalOcean, the Premium Droplets will add even more oomph and capabilities to your arsenal.
