Transfer data continuously

DigitalOcean Ubuntu


I'm about to put up a sensor network connected to a Raspberry Pi. I want to save the data from the sensors continuously in a cloud solution (say every 5 minutes) and was looking at Digital Ocean as one solution. Is it possible to do this by sending the data in an easy way from the Raspberry Pi to the cloud just by a Python code? Or do I have to verify the R-Pi and log on to the droplet every time I want to send something?

Kind Regards,

You can run whatever services you want on your droplet so there is no need to use the built in ssh service or the control panel to do this. If you're planning to send data every 5 minutes you could set up a small python service to listen for and record the data.
