What are the best aspects of this product?
Reasonable price, precise and customized software. Works great to assigned resources. Great technical support. We can boot directly into our custom Linux kernel. SSH works amazingly, and ping is low. The API is powerful for creating dynamic droplets and images. Digital Ocean allows you to create integration with auto-balanced, microservices and self-healing ecosystem. It’s cheaper than Amazon.
What aspects are problematic or could work better?
Reboots happen because of the disk failure, but I have never lost my data. Sometimes the connection is lost but I think this is my internet provider. Does not have cheap containers with 250M. The power on/off is not fully supported for iOS and Android.
What specific problems in your company were solved by this product?
We use Digital Ocean for MVP design, to test ideas, to set up multi-datacenter and to load balance for $5 per node. DO helps us to test concepts, apps, DNS servers, HTTPS, Meteor, hosted Node.js. Also, we can install node packages. By using other vendor we are able to test geo-distribution.
