Last month, the founder of a small startup got quite a bit of attention on Twitter and Hacker News when he called out DigitalOcean who, in his words, "killed" his company. Long story short: DigitalOcean's automated abuse system flagged the startup's account after they spun up about ten powerful droplets for some CPU-intensive jobs and deleted them shortly after — which is literally the biggest selling point of a "servers by the hour" company like DigitalOcean, by the way — and, after replying to the support ticket, an unsympathetic customer support agent declined to reactivate the account without explanation. Nicolas had no way of even accessing his data, turning the inconvenient but trivial task of migrating servers into a potentially fatal situation for his company. How DigitalOcean just killed our company raisupcom. A long thread for a very sad story. Predictably, there were a lot of Monday - morning quarterbacks who weighed in, scolding him for not having backups he did , but they were also stored on DigitalOcean and not paying a boatload of non-existent money for expensive load balancers pointing to multiple cloud providers.
