|We have been using AWS for the past 3 years, but looking at Digital Ocean simply because we could save some money if we moved over. So what are the plus/minuses of running node.js with mongo and RabbitMQ on DO compared to AWS? I am looking hopefully for people that have done this type of switch, either way, so I can learn from their mistakes. I am most concerned with uptime and reliability of the infrastructure.|
For services we use, we mostly use EC2, Route53 and ELB's. I would think we would leave our Route53 as is, but move the EC2 instances and ELB workload. Is there an equivalent service at DO to ELB's or do I need to spin up instances and run our own load balancers? Don't care either way, just want to make sure we don't miss something and are comparing apples to apples.
