        Review ofDigitalOceanDigitalOcean

        I started using DigitalOcean back in January to host a Ghost blog. I was a little worried at first because I didn't have too much experience setting up servers. There was always the option of a full service company that does all the work for you, but the point was that I wanted more control for the purpose of learning. And, learning turned out to be really easy thanks to the great community at DigitalOcean. There are tutorials for just about anything. It has been an amazing learning experience, and now I'm looking forward to hosting more complex projects here. I already have a couple in the works for the near future. I highly recommend it.

        I can't rate the Support great or bad, as I haven't really had a need to contact them yet. But everything else has been excellent so far.

        Review ofMicrosoft AzureMicrosoft Azure

        Windows Azure is more difficult to configure than some other cloud based technologies, however, it makes up for it with the incredible integrations and ease of development on mobile platforms (Android, iOS and of course Windows Phone).

        The Azure Web Sites is a PaaS that is very easy to setup and is pretty powerful.

        If you want VMs you can have them and even program when they come online.

        There are tons of ways to use this service and there are a lot of free things you can get in order to try it out. The only downside is that you have to learn a new, although very powerful, platform.

        Review ofDigitalOceanDigitalOcean

        I am a freelancer and a researcher. I have had tried a lot of hosting services over the years. But DIgitalOcean stands out from the rest for its pricing. Its just five dollar a month for a basic node.

        And the other reason for loving Digital Ocean is that they support Docker. It you buy a VPS machine, chances are that docker support wont be available as with PV or hypervisor, docker need some extra config.

        So far I am loving DO :-)

        I use DigitalOcean for testing or hosting my apps. You can set up an Ubuntu server in less than a minute. There are also one-click-install apps, so I don't have to install e.g. the LAMP stack myself. The dashboard has a really easy UI and is easy to use. The costs begin at 5 bucks per month. Also DigitalOcean has a great support and an adorable community. They have a great support page with hundreds of tutorials.

        We use Microsoft Azure because many of our clients are already Azure for their private cloud. Additionally, Azure supports App Service Environments (ASE), which isolates the application resources and gives us a static IP for securely accessing external resources

        Additionally, MSSQL supports columnstore tables which is critical for running fast analytics over large datasets

        DigitalOcean offers us everything we need to test out specific scenarios or we expect from small-servers like our monitoring-system. We also use digital-ocean in long-term and are very satisfied with their performance and scalability.

        Because I like having more control of my deployment, I am currently hosting this on DigitalOcean. I don't need to worry about arbitrary row limits and I can be sure that the app is always running.

        My favourite cloud with all the great tools - web apps, mobile apps, storages, easy tables, blobs, app insights, cosmos DB... I think it is really usable and ergonomic. Plus point for mobile app.

        We currently host PRS and EARS on Azure as they are .Net apps, but we are currently porting these services to Scala and will be hosting them on Heroku with the other P2 SRX services.

        We use DigitalOcean to host our build tools (namely Drone.io) for a cheap CI and CD server.

        We'll be using this to host the server application during alpha phase.

        Blackbaud makes use of Azure and my current job is with Blackbaud. Therefore, due to the free credit and the ability to reuse tools, I rely on Azure quite a bit.

        Been hosting with them for a while now. Never had an issue, great support, great docs: can't beat 'em. Though I'd probably move to AWS for large scale projects.

        DigitalOcean is the backbone for the whole stack. Without its cheap pricing and easy scalability this whole project wouldn't be possible.
