I have some things running on DigitalOcean and I’m very happy with them.
They are running fast KVM VPS on SSD drives which gives them an amazing performance for an very affordable price. </shameless advertisement>
For Ubuntu there is a little DigitalOcean Indicator showing the current VPS status and allowing basic operation. Just enough for my needs. Here is how to get it.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andrewsomething/digitalocean sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install digitalocean-indicator
To make it fly you will need your digitalocean api key from your account.
