Moving Servers from AWS to DigitalOcean: Pricing Comparison

Amazon offers many services, with a price.

Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, DigitalOcean and other provide software engineers and SREs with plenty to play with, but what's the cost? I've used probably close to a dozen services including Rackspace, HP and Linode. Let's have a look at pricing.

This Saturday I decided to move an old website,, from AWS to DigitalOcean after the monthly $62 Amazon bill hit more sense than dollars. Or however that goes. Since I love DigitalOcean I decided to move there. VM's there are cheap, $5/month, to be exact. Does performance take a hit?

No, not for small websites. If you're getting under 10,000 users per month it doesn't really matter what VM you're on. Just don't do on-prem.
