For development, I certainly share your enthusiasm for Digital Ocean. We also use Vultr regularly for the same reasons you've stated. The financial consideration comes when you decide to use one of these platforms as your permanent VoIP home. Then the cost is about 4-5 times what the Bleeding Edge providers offer. That buys a lot of redundancy. Personally, we use Vultr for a 3CX server, one Incredible PBX server, and our OpenVPN server. No hiccups ever and backups are automatic. We supplement those servers with nearly a dozen of the Bargain Basement VPS offerings for testing (them and us) plus a dozen or more servers running at CloudAtCost just because we love water torture. We've also been very pleased with OVH which is lower cost than D.O. and Vultr unless you add backups which are extremely pricey.
