In the previous post I compared the above three with their then-current prices.
Guess what, DigitalOcean actually improved their offering and they even tweeted me about it. I must say I’m impressed. At least I wasn’t wrong when I said quality of service is strong with this one.
Let’s recheck the numbers then, shall we? Changes since the last comparison are highlighted in blue.
|Storage||25 GB||20 GB||25 GB|
|RAM||1 GB||1 GB||1 GB|
|Monthly Transfer||1 TB||1 TB||1 TB|
|Block Storage / GB||$0.1||$2 *||$0.1|
|Unattended Datacenter Move||yes (snapshots)||no||yes (snapshots)|
|Custom ISO Install||no||yes||yes|
* based on anecdotal evidence, no public pricing on block storage
Is DO competitive in the low-end tier again? Yup, most definitely, I recommend you check them out!
