How many droplets (roughly) are deployed on DigitalOcean today?

Posted January 25, 2019 1.2k views

Just a general question :) I’m doing research and was wondering the current scale of a general “large scale” system (in terms of number of nodes) on DO and how DO as a whole compared in size (in terms of VPS) to sometihng like AWS and GCP.

We don’t share the specifics of our usage data, but we can share that over 1 million Droplets are active on the DigitalOcean platform today. I hope that you’re at least one of them, and if not then I may bribe you with cookies.


So let me get this straight, if we start droplets on DO we get cookies!? That’s great! How do I let you know where to send them?
