What do you like best?

Posiblemente sea uno de los proveedores de servicios de almacenamiento en la nube con mejor relación calidad - precio que conozco, ya que por 5 dólares al mes te da hasta 250 gb, y todo ello además con un ancho de banda muy superior a la mayoría de sus competidores.

Una vez puesto en marcha, es un servicio de lo más completo, y tras su instalación (que requiere ciertos conocimientos) es muy sencillo de utilizar: simplemente tienes que "arrastrar y soltar" archivos. No puede ser más intuitivo. Y por supuesto también puedes guardar aquí copias de seguridad.

Los espacios se administran a través de API, CLI, biblioteca cliente API o de tu herramienta favorita compatible con S3. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Instalar al inicio los paneles de control puede ser un poco difícil para principiantes (pero una vez instalados, el manejo es muy sencillo). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ofrece un período de prueba gratuito, por lo que no pierdes nada por probar. Seguro que te convence. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sin duda su precio de lo más competitivo, que da acceso a un servicio de calidad (que ya he descrito antes). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

DigitalOcean Spaces is the name for their S3 bucket product. It is absolutely *super-simple* to setup, really affordable, and has amazing services like CDN and caches included in the default setup of the product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike here. I wish their UI for browsing Spaces/S3 buckets was a bit quicker, but that is also avoidable by using a cloud-computing-independent program or service that has a better S3 browsing service, like Transmit app or CyberDuck. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For any company that already has services hosted on DigitalOcean, S3 is a service that is at a high standard, similar to all the other existing DigitalOcean services! It is a really obvious choice for S3 bucket storage, really easy to setup, has straightforward pricing, and is an overall extremely polished product. The pricing is also competitive with other cloud computing platforms that offer S3 buckets. :) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

DigitalOcean Spaces provide S3 bucket storage for static files and folders, like images, user data, etc... By using this product on DigitalOcean, we were able to avoid adding a different cloud computing stack to our infrastructure, and avoided having to spend long hours setting up a service like AWS or Google Cloud Platform.

I have never had any issues with digital ocean and can't think of anything. We have been using them for years. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
