RAMNODE gives you:
Windows Server 2008 R2
Allows any torrents (upto 20 MBPS throttle only)
Multi-core CPU at cheaper rates (why write threaded application if there is going to be just a single core)
More RAM at cheaper rates
The only disadvantage of RAMNODE(in context of low end servers) :
Not enough global penetration
No hourly billing
TECHNICALLY ramnode is a better product and socially DigitalOcean is a better product.
So don't give your management bonuses this year, hire intelligent technical people (C/C++ coders) implement a hyper converged infrastructure which RAMNODE probably has.
