Now, deciding the best platform depends on the use and the type of business. If you are a large enterprise that needs the full bells and whistles all on one ecosystem, then Amazon AWS is the right pick for you. On the other hand, if you are a small startup looking for a simple solution then you should choose to play in the DigitalOcean ecosystem, which is optimized for you.
Amazon AWS is the undisputed leader in the cloud computing market and global presence in at least 36 availability zones and over 50 edge locations. It provides customers with the latest innovations ahead of the general market.
DigitalOcean, on the other hand, is a more agile and lean platform, with a strong emphasis on simplicity for the end-user. It has focused on its target market of developers and small businesses well, with simple UI and a low complexity approach that makes it possible for small, understaffed, DevOps teams to manage their infrastructure as well as any large enterprise.
Also to put it straight, if you are looking for a platform that is cost-effective then DigitalOcean is the right pick for you whereas if you are looking for multiple tools for your business then you should go for the AWS services.
