Hello, I recently noticed that Amazon launched a new service called LightSail that seems to be attempting to compete with Digital Ocean.
I can see that DO actually provides better value in terms of more resources for the same money for some pricing tiers. And based on some published test results the DO SSD IOPS performance is vastly superior to Lightsail.
HOWEVER, the Lightsail home and feature pages show (developers?) wearing a cape and sitting on a motorcycle. Since no developers I know generally wear a cape or code while sitting on a motorcycle, I can only assume this means that the cape and motorcycle are provided when you sign up for Lightsail.
Unfortunately for DO, this is the clincher for me. I will be switching to Lightsail immediately unless you can provide me with at least a cape. Preferably a royal purple one.
