Hello, First of all thanks for this amazing product and community. And also I deleted the first post cause I believe I created it wrong. Secondly I don't know if this is the proper place to ask, but I'd like to hear your opinions/suggestions/ideas about how to store user data. I am going to use DigitalOcean, and want to try as an app. Although I can build my own server and maintain as a sysadmin, I don't want to focus on those things. So my question is, do you create new droplets for each user? Or how do you store their data? My application is simple, just consider it as they put some inputs and I store them so they can check what they wrote there. Thanks a lot.

What I could suggest is to use the LaraSail script to prepare your DigitalOcean server for multiple Laravel applications:
Recently a community member submitted a PR to allow Wave installations with LaraSail as well.
That way you could host multiple Laravel application on the same Droplet.
What I personally do is to host multiple sites on the same Droplet and monitor the resources utilization. Once a specific site grows too much, I move it to its own server.
Regarding the data, you could store it directly on the Droplet or use the DigitalOcean spaces as an S3 storage.
Hope that this helps!
