My Ruby on Rails app uses Amazon Web Servces (AWS) to host images, do I do the same for DigitalOcean....?

Does Digital Ocean host images? If not, besides AWS what are somme good alternatives? Does Digital Ocean support ruby 2.4.1 and rails 5.1.2? Thanks in advance.

For hosting static assets like images, DigitalOcean also provide an object storage solution similar to AWS’ S3. It’s API was designed to be inter-operable with S3, so you should be able to take advantage of the tools you you are already using. Find out more about Space in this article:
