Anyone using Digital Ocean Droplets? What's your experience with them?

I’m using the $5/month droplet running Ubuntu. 512MB RAM, 1 CPU, 20GB storage and 1TB traffic. Just wondering about everyone’s experience with the company.

The only downside to DigitalOcean is support. Never had to open a ticket myself but apparently it takes days before they respond and that was before COVID 19.

I have been using DigitalOcean for a while now and I have been more than happy with their services including Droplets, Managed databases and Kubernetes. I love the simple pricing compared to some other cloud providers.

But the best part is the community and the awesome tutorials.
