What are the best aspects of this product?
I am able to run GitLab, Discourse or plain Fedora image in few seconds. That’s how amazing DigitalOcean is. You can be sure that you will pay for what you really need thanks to various droplet sizes and prices. The price is reasonable and you can even choose from various data centers that are located around the world. You can even be on a vacation for 2 months if you want and still keep track of your progress by taking a snapshots of your Cloud droplet and whenever you need you can always turn it on, every piece of information you need is in one place. The tutorial repository is great feature, great knowledge base, understandable instructions and explanations.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
When you install some images you need to take few steps to ensure security. It’s always a good idea to check tutorials that are related to the image so you can be sure that the configuration is secure. I think it would be great if the users get more direct instructions after the installation.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
We use Digital Ocean to test web applications and to check services that we do not know. I use DO as a hosting to my ownCloud and GitLab and we receive great collaboration with my team.
