DigitalOcean, the world's simplest and fastest cloud hosting service offers simple SSD based cloud hosting. Users can create a cloud server in 55 seconds, with affordable pricing plans. In a recent "This Week in Startups" video interview, Mitch Wainer, the co-founder and chief marketing officer at DigitalOcean discussed how he went from having no equity in a difficult marketing job to raising $37.2 million to start an SSD-based cloud provider company – and gives 5W Public Relations recognition for the Public Relations work they have done for Digital Ocean.
