Y Combinator has always used Amazon Web Services (AWS) in the past. AWS sponsored Y Combinator startups. Interesting move to DigitalOcean for the W16 batch and alumni.
We’re excited to announce that DigitalOcean will be giving $250,000 in cloud hosting credits to YC’s W16 batch and alumni.
Lots of YC founders are already huge fans of DigitalOcean. Their cloud control panel is dead simple, their customer success team offers excellent support, and they provide a great price-to-performance offering.
