Co-founder & CEO, Red5 Pro 

With a partner like DigitalOcean, we can save on data transfer costs and became more cost-efficient. The cloud cost optimization that Vidgyor has seen in the past few months is approximately 25%, which is a big amount for most companies and in these tough times, any savings will go a long way.
