Amazon LightSail

Lightsail packages together a compute server, storage, and transfer into fixed-price plans, like VPS providers do.

For a starting price of $10 a month you can abstract away your VPS deployment, provisioning and orchestration. You get an abstraction layer.

It looks like an interesting way of integrating DigitalOcean VPS and Amazon LightSail VPS for instance.

Lightsail is a little more expensive than but otherwise comparable to similarly priced plans offered at the time by Linode and DigitalOcean. Linode is cheaper in terms of RAM and both Linode and DigitalOcean are cheaper in terms of network overage costs, but Lightsail costs less if the server is being spun up for only a few hours -
