Digital Ocean

Ever heard of Digital Ocean? They are yet another cloud computing service. They offer free trial of $100 free service for 60 days, so I signed up. They only have data centers in a few international locations, nothing like AWS, but I really haven’t reviewed reliability and rates comparisons between all the various cloud services. Digital Ocean has some really intuitive dashboard software, that helped me get off the ground quite fast.

Unfortunately, the online tutorial on launching your first container said it would show how to use the open source TerraForm product to launch a whole multi-container, load balanced application, but cuts off after revealing about 10% of the process. Disappointing.
