For testing out Airbyte, a $20/month droplet is likely sufficient.
For long-running Airbyte installations, we recommend a $40/month instance.
Generally, choose a datacenter close to you.
Wait for the droplet to enter the Running state.
Note: The following commands will be entered either on your local terminal or in your ssh session on the instance terminal. The comments above each command block will indicate where to enter the commands.
