Cheaper than Amazon/Google (especially for smaller servers). Compare with other cloud providers.
Very new but getting traction quickly.
Scaling up process is slower than with Amazon / Google (typically under ten minutes). Scaling down is not possible (you need to use our clone feature to clone existing server to a smaller one). Scaling processes involve downtime.
Backup/restore processes are a bit slower than Amazon (as we store backups on Amazon infrastructure). Snapshot backups not available.
When a server is stopped, we will charge for the whole server as if started (DigitalOcean policy).
Cheap bandwidth. Good solution if your applications use lots of it.
A very good number of locations (12). USA – Seattle, USA – USA-Silicon Valley, USA – Los Angeles, USA – Chicago, USA – Miami, USA – New York, UK – London, Europe – Amsterdam, Europe – Paris, Europe – Frankfurt, Asia Pacific – Tokyo, Asia Pacific – Sydney.
