Why thousands of developers choose DigitalOcean

I can’t [help] but love @digitalocean. They are bringing all the required tools for managing an app stack. Not overly complicated like AWS and G Cloud, and good pricing as well :-)

I've worked with every conceivable service provider (Rackspace, AWS, Azure, etc), and Digital Ocean's amazing documentation, great UI/UX, and reasonable and understandable pricing scheme are unsurpassed. What's not to love?
