    Phoronix: Trying Out & Benchmarking The DigitalOcean Cloud

    One of the more popular test requests recently at Phoronix.com has been to deliver some reference benchmarks of DigitalOcean's public cloud. DigitalOcean is an increasingly-popular, low-cost public cloud that got started back in 2011. Due to being always inundated with new Linux review and benchmark requests at Phoronix, it has taken a while to get around to it, but at Phoronix today we're posting our first reference benchmarks of the Linux-powered DigitalOcean cloud platform.

    Have been using DigitalOcean for university project. I found support to be quite good, they have tutorials how to setup things such as LAMP and so on. After I cancelled my subscription, they gave me 5$ to give them another try.

      No IPv6 Support

      Unfortunately it looks like DigitalOcean is still struggling with missed deadlines for IPv6 support: https://www.digitalocean.com/communi...ipv6-available

      It's too bad, their plans look like a much better per-spec value than my current provider, Linode.

        If anyone were actually using IPv6, this would be a real issue.

            Hoping for others being benchmarked as well

            https://www.vultr.com/ is trying to be the digital ocean 'killer' by being cheaper and claiming to be faster, so that might be a good provider to compare.

            What would also be interresting is to benchmark some 'baremetal cloud' offering:
