DigitalOcean Review: The King Of Cloud Reliability


Datacenters: USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany, India, Singapore

Overall Rating: A

Slightly slower network response, but they make up for it in terms of stability. UI is slick, if not a bit overdone. Strong corporate policies based in the United States, have developed a reputation for trust and reliability.
