DigitalOcean bills itself as "Simple Cloud Hosting, Built for Developers" and promises that even a rookie developer or engineer can deploy a cloud server with just a few clicks.
"We're simplifying the cloud for developers and providing an experience they will fall in love with," says Daniel Zaltsman, DigitalOcean's Social Media Manager.
He said that when he arrived at the company, the co-founders were "tweeting in the middle of the night" but that he was able to leverage "a support team that was already technical" and teach them "how to use social". DigitalOcean's social care is unique in that it handles mostly technical questions, but its customers demand the same kind of responsiveness as traditional consumer-facing companies.
