Super Fast Cloud Hosting - Replacing Amazon EC2 with Digital Ocean

Posted on September 03, 2013


We recently moved our customer servers from Amazon EC2 to Digital Ocean. Ignoring the huge cost savings for a second, the performance increase has been amazing. You get considerably more power for less money.

  • Server costs were reduced by 60%
  • Massive performance increase – drives are SSD based
  • Base packages start as low as $5
  • Support! Digital Ocean has online support techs which have always been very quick to get back to us.

There are a few features which I am really missing, like the ability to have multiple IPs to a cloud instance (or the ability to move IPs around your instances). I plan on writing a full blog review and comparison soon. In the meantime, if you haven't already looked into Digital Ocean, I highly recommend them. We couldn't be happier.
