Hey guys, new here. Been using Digital Ocean off and on for the last few years, mostly for personal projects and have really liked it a lot. Recently, though I started using it for Big Data processes. What I do is spin up the max number of nodes I can (10) and then have a script that outfits the servers, downloads the data from s3 that needs to be processed, and runs the process itself - right now doing a bunch of record linkage across millions of rows of B2B data.
Looks like Digital Ocean has closed my account now though, saying I’ve been using the servers for crypto mining which is against the TOS. Besides not being able to find anything about crypto mining in the TOS, I have never used any of the servers I’ve spun up for anything but big data analytics. Has anyone run across this before? What’s the best route to getting my account unlocked.
