I was comparing DO storage optimized droplet largest instance to AWS, GCP counterparts which you can see below.
DO storage optimized droplet
Instance Name : i3.x8large
Instance type : n2-highmem-32
As you can see DO storage optimized droplet is expensive compared to GCP, AWS instances. If you go with same AWS instance with 1 year full or partial upfront reserve things get more cheaper. I expected DO to be cheaper compared to AWS and GCP. Am I missing something here?
Another problem I see with DO droplets is network interface speed.
