If we host with Digital Ocean, will using Spaces be more efficient and faster than using S3? S3 is kind of a hassle and if this makes our site faster I could make the switch.

A content delivery network can be a quick and effective solution for improving the scalability and availability of your web sites. By caching static assets on a geographically distributed network of optimized servers, you can greatly reduce page load times and latencies for end users. In addition, CDNs allow you to significantly reduce your bandwidth usage by absorbing user requests and responding from cache at the edge, thus lowering your bandwidth and infrastructure costs.
