What is the best cloud provider to launch a SaaS product on?

AWS first comes to mind, they give generous free credits – but it also seems quite complex. Same for GCP and Azure. Then there are Heroku and Digital Ocean. Look much simpler so we can probably move much faster. But they also cost more, and offer way less services. How would you think about these tradeoffs?

Digital Ocean is cheaper than AWS, Azure and GCP. If you just need storage, computing etc go with Digital Ocean. If you need access to advanced features such as SNS etc go with one of the big 3 providers,

@rebecca_figueroa thanks!! Digital Ocean seems to be a great in-between option indeed.

Depends on the tech stack but there are often tools that help with getting deployed and managing updates on AWS. Tools such as Laravel Forge and Vapor are great examples.
