DigitalOcean CEO Building Cloud Without OpenStack or OCP

While much of the cloud computing world today is moving toward the open-source OpenStack infrastructure platform, DigitalOcean is not. Uretsky said that at this point it would be very difficult for his company to adopt OpenStack; plus, he doesn’t believe that it would offer any significant advantage.

DigitalOcean’s infrastructure is currently a purpose-built proprietary code base, but Uretsky is considering taking the software open-source, if it makes sense, at some point.
