The company leases capacity from existing data centers, including sites in New York, Amsterdam, San Francisco, London, Singapore and Frankfurt. It is an Infrastructure as a Service, comparable to Google Storage and Amazon S3 online storage services. DigitalOcean has received $90.4 million in funding across four venture rounds from Techstars, Fortress Investment Group, Crunch Fund, Andreessen Horowitz, and IA Ventures.Microsoft was founded by Bill Gates and Paul Allen on April 4, 1975, to develop and sell BASIC interpreters for Altair 8800. It rose to dominate the personal computer operating system market with MS-DOS in the mid-1980s, followed by Microsoft Windows. The company's 1986 initial public offering, and subsequent rise in its share price, created three billionaires and an estimated 12,000 millionaires from Microsoft employees. Since the 1990s, it has increasingly diversified from the operating system market and has made a number of corporate acquisitions. In May 2011, Microsoft acquired Skype Technologies for $8.5 billion in its largest acquisition to date.
