Why customers building websites choose to host on DigitalOcean

We needed to store 1.5 billion documents while allowing for a rate of growth of around 2 million documents per day. That amounts to 6TB of data, growing by the minute, that all must be retrievable in under half a second. DigitalOcean is providing us with infrastructure from which we can build dreams and ideas.Read More
