Why is Digital Ocean so slow to respond to problems

Our servers have been getting reset almost weekly, data gets lost, its takes hours to respond to questions. Its impossible to rely on Digital Ocean.

yes its convenient to spawn a server, looks hip. But come on people, its still a technology platform, and we rely on your support to get sh*t done.

however the data got lost… Which does not add up at all.

We have the backups, but it is a very small application, there is no way the data set is too big. There are no writes on this database to increase its memory.

It is annoying to get copy paste responses to your tickets from your technicians. Are you a consumer product or a professional service?

We obviously understand how mysql and persistence work. it the deamon goes down, data should not be deleted.
