Right now our standard VPS offerings are m1 small, medium, large, and xlarge. They vary by three attributes -- RAM, storage, and CPU -- and they all rise as you go up the scale. This assumes, for instance, that because someone has large RAM needs, they also have large storage and large processing needs. This isn't necessarily true.
As we want to encourage responsible resource use and not have people provision resources they don't need, we should consider additional types of instances that scale resource allocation differently. I think DigitalOcean has a useful model here -- you can get "standard" instances comparable to our current offerings, but you can also get optimized instances that offer less storage in favor of more/better RAM and CPU. (Our bigram flavor is based on the same principle but was created ad hoc to fulfill a particular need.)
I am posting this as an idea. No urgent action is needed.
