DigitalOcean App Platform’s price performance was the best—it was much much cheaper than Heroku and it also abstracted away a layer of complexity that we just didn’t need to deal with because we’re such a small team.

Of all the services I have tried, the one I like the most is the App Platform and how easy it is to configure everything.

I needed a platform to host my upcoming AI-based app from frontend to middleware to backend with databases, block storage and machine learning. I didn't want all of my technology in different servers, on different platforms, and custom-created to run on a particular infrastructure. As such, DigitalOcean provided me with all of the above and made it next to seamless to integrate with each other.

Your app platform is awesome, I've just migrated 2 static sites (previously running on a droplet) and it works great. You're the only cloud that helps me save money. I'm always recommending you to everyone :)
