Why is DigitalOcean block storage so expensive?
I was doing some analysis of various online storage providers, and put together this spreadsheet.
DigitalOcean Block Storage is by far the most expensive at $102/TiB/mo.
Even in comparison to Digital Ocean’s own Spaces product, it’s 5x more expensive.
Why? I understand they’re not quite the same, and maybe some cost savings can be had by splitting our files across multiple disks and machines with Spaces, but does that warrant such a big markup?
