Cloud computing is revolutionizing how companies across the globe develop and deploy applications. The cloud offers lower upfront cost and superior flexibility and scalability when compared to on-premise software development environments. These benefits are especially valuable for start-ups and small and medium-sized businesses, as they typically have more limited financial resources, operational expertise, and IT personnel.
DigitalOcean’s mission is to simplify cloud computing so that developers and businesses can spend more time building software that changes the world. With its leading cloud computing platform providing critical on-demand infrastructure, tools, and fully managed offerings, the company helps developers, start-ups and SMBs rapidly build, deploy and scale applications to accelerate innovation and increase productivity and agility. Combining this simplicity, with a vast open-source community and support, customers can spend less time managing their infrastructure and more time building innovative applications that drive business growth.
