By switching from AWS to DigitalOcean we reduced our costs by 50%. We achieved the ease of use and speed of launch and delivery we were looking for.

3CX needed to have reliable resources supporting its operation and found that DigitalOcean's products were a match. The simplicity and pricing model stood out amongst competition, and afforded the company better flexibility to sustainably meet growing customer demand.
DigitalOcean is a very down-to-earth, helpful and communicative partner. They stretch far to help us be successful in building our business. It's the best choice for SMBs and startups as they are scaling up.
As a software builder, our ambition is always to write good code and host our code on good infrastructure so that we can give our clients the best possible experience. We are excited to be a DigitalOcean partner and look forward to continuing our work with them.
