Founder @ Tap Venue Digital Ocean is a great platform and has grown a lot over the years, now offering a large suite of products at an affordable price. Highly recommend checking them out to seeing if they're a good fir for your business.
I used to work with AWS for most of my professional cloud life. However, after a lot of considerations for my own business, I decided to go with DigitalOcean ! There are two main reasons for it: ease of use (that's a big one) and "they work so hard to help their clients! Great job guys!
I wanted to like it, but it is not usable in its current form. Problems: - Can't clear build cache. I was using Prisma as my orm and needed to generate the module on schema changes. App platform used the old module that was generated from the old schema. Without a way to clear the cache I was unable to run my app. - Builds take forever. Next js build time was around 15 minutes. Its crazy long considering a 3 dollar vps with Caprover was able to build a next js image in 1 minute. - Creating prebuild and postbuild scripts was really weird (or not even possible?). I tried to find information about it but could not. Compared to heroku for instance, where running a postbuild script is easy and very well documented.

We are huge DO fans. Our entire platform is built on and running on DO. Awesome new feature!
