How can I detect whether a VM is running in DigitalOcean, from within the VM

As the title says, for provisioning purposes I need to find out whether the VM is running in digitalocean. In aws, I query, but here that is not available, nor is there any information in the environment.

You can WHOIS the IP address. If the block belongs to DigitalOcean, it’s most likely a DigitalOcean droplet.
