You get full root access to your droplets/vpses. You can install any software you like as long as it's linux-compatible and is not against the TOS:
Thanks for your reply but what I meant was, does digitalocean have the hardware required to host an SMS Gateway?

Thanks again,
What kind of hardware is required to host an SMS gateway?
Unfortunately we do not have this kind of hardware.
What sort of scale were you looking at? Or, what's the use case? Many end-user apps have SMS capabilities, e.g. Outlook, AOL Instant Messenger, ICQ, Windows Live Messenger, Skype, Yahoo! Messenger.

Otherwise, you could look at a direct-to-SMSC gateway, which probably could be implemented on DigitalOcean's servers; but would probably require a contract directly with a mobile operator.
