In this Episode: How Hyperscalers Offer Great Reliability
Darian Wilkin, Senior Solutions Engineer at Digital Ocean, describes Digital Ocean as AWS, “give or take $160 Million.” And while this is a tongue-in-cheek way of saying they offer the same thing, but AWS is much much bigger, it also plays to Digital Ocean’s strength.
See, if you’ve ever experienced streaming issues with HBO or the Super Bowl, it’s likely due to the sheer amount of traffic crushing the infrastructure. And while HBO and NBC have the staff and the wallets to make AWS work for them, most SMBs don’t.
That’s where Digital Ocean comes in. They want to bring the reliability, availability, and redundancy of hyperscalers to SMBs so they can focus on running their business, and not on becoming an infrastructure expert.
