Hear from DigitalOcean customer Kea

What they do: Kea is a voice-based artificial intelligence SaaS platform that enables restaurants to take orders over the phone without the need for additional staff. 

How DigitalOcean powers their business:
When Kea was first built they used a large cloud provider for their cloud services. As they grew and started to improve their platform, they were having challenges around the lack of transparency their cloud provided; turning off one function could make others stop working, which was challenging as a lean organization trying to maintain their stack.

Once switching to DigitalOcean, Kea found the simplicity of DigitalOcean’s solutions, the large library of documentation and tutorials, and the support provided to them enabled them to focus more on their business. They found it was easy to set up Droplets (Linux-based virtual machines) with just a few clicks in DigitalOcean’s user-friendly interface, and quickly got support whenever it was needed.

What SaaS building solution is right for me? 

  • DigitalOcean offers a variety of solutions for building and scaling your SaaS application. Droplets are our flexible, scalable virtual machines. They support Linux applications and are fully customizable to your needs. Droplets start at just $5 and can be scaled vertically by adding resources to your Droplet, or horizontally by deploying multiple Droplets in one data center or across our 14 global data centers. You can add storage and other features to complement your Droplets. App Platform is our fully managed Platform as a Service offering, which allows you to easily spin up a static website or application without having to manage the infrastructure yourself. This solution is ideal for those who want the benefits of DigitalOcean without maintaining their own infrastructure. DigitalOcean also offers Managed Kubernetes for containerization solutions and Managed Databases including MongoD, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Redis.
