Finding the Right DigitalOcean Virtual Machine Type For Your Business


About the Talk

See how DigitalOcean’s simple, flexible, and reliable virtual machines (VMs) — called Droplets — can scale with you as your business grows. From a robust compute platform for production business applications, to customizable and cost-effective Droplets for personal passion projects, there is a right-shaped VM for you to scale vertically or horizontally.



Droplets are Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) that run on top of virtualized hardware. Each Droplet you create is a new server you can use, either standalone or as part of a larger, cloud-based infrastructure. [Docs]
