DigitalOcean is a cloud computing company that offers a variety of cloud services, such as web hosting, virtual machines, and cloud storage. DigitalOcean was founded in 2011 and is headquartered in New York City.
According to a 2018 report by Gartner, DigitalOcean is the fastest-growing cloud infrastructure provider.
In terms of ease of use, DigitalOcean is easier than AWS. DigitalOcean offers a one-click install of the operating system and applications needed for a cloud server, while AWS requires users to set up and manage the operating system, applications, and security themselves.
Additionally, DigitalOcean offers more control over server configuration and security, as well as the ability to scale up or down quickly. However, AWS is more expensive than DigitalOcean, and its services are also available in more countries.
