DDoS Protection at Digital Ocean Datacenter

We have a diverse hosting environment with VPS severs across several providers. How does Digital Ocean Protect against a DDoS attack on the Datacenters level? One of providers, Linode, has been susceptible to attacks over the last several months to their entire Datacenters? How does Digital Ocean differ from this regard in mitigating these types of attacks?

We use a variety of methods internally, and with our partners. One thing we do is use providers that are able to blackhole, or cordon off traffic from an IP range, or to a certain server. We also have internal teams that constantly monitor and react to events like the ones that you bring up. We also have the ability to move server and DNS traffic around on our own infrastructure, and can dynamically add resources to a pool of servers to handle traffic spikes.
