We are new to Digital Ocean and like what we see so far. My colleague who has more experience of cloud hosting posed the following question:
One thing that is not clear to me about Digital Ocean (and I’ve not yet looked hard at their documentation) is how reliable/robust they believe the “droplets” are … I’m wondering about this because the Amazon EC2 model is that the individual server instances should be regarded as inherently unreliable and you should architect the system to be able to handle unexpected termination of an instance at any time. Does the same thing apply to Digital Ocean?
