DigitalOcean is platform developed for developers who need to launch and scale their applications quickly. Additionally, DigitalOcean provides the perfect environment for developers to play around on the command line and learn more about customizing their own servers.
DigitalOcean offers significantly better hardware at the lowest price in the industry. All of the DigitalOcean servers come on SSD drives, and the smallest plan ($5 a month/$0.007 an hour) is 512MB. DigitalOcean has servers in New York, San Francisco, Amsterdam, and Singapore.
DigitalOcean users can have their personal cloud server spun up and active in 55 seconds. Each box comes with full root access, a choice of distributions, and the ability to customize the setup.
DigitalOcean allows on the fly scaling—a task that is much more difficult on a dedicated box. Changing the amount of RAM on a box can be done with a simple reboot, while expanding the disk size takes less than an hour. The same process can take hours or days with a dedicated setup.
