In 2011, brothers Ben and Moisey Uretsky decided to put their computer science skills to the test. Thus, DigitalOcean was born. They developed a business based on virtual private server technology. The company was quickly accepted into the TechStars startup accelerator program and by 2013 had become one of the largest hosting companies in the world.
DigitalOcean seeks to simplify web infrastructure and build a product that developers love. The company lists three key areas of focus on its website: a fantastic user experience handcrafted by developers, deploy and speed up projects on the SSD-based cloud, and scale infrastructure with
the simple and intuitive API.
What makes DigitalOcean's unique?
DigitalOcean has made waves in relatively short order by becoming one of the fastest-growing developer-centric hosting platforms in the world.
