Question

Is using Digital Ocean for Machine Learning against its Usage Terms ?

I want to create a high performance droplet to use for Machine Learning. The droplet will probably keep running at 100% CPU for a couple of days. I want to know if this is ok ? I have read that a lot of people were complaining that their accounts got blocked after intense cpu usage. I obviously don’t want that, as I have other important running droplets.

Greetings!

As long as you’re using our CPU Optimized droplets, this is completely fine and actually one of the use cases we were thinking of when we deployed them.
