Now given that bottom feeders like Digital Ocean and others can do as you suggest then they will get customers and could slowly deteriorate the margins of the big guys. The smaller companies can exist on lower margins and make inroads to the big guys. Is that possible?

Yes. And Digital Ocean (among others) has done exactly that. Which is why this site runs there; it's cheaper than running it on my own infrastructure (by quite a lot.)

Note that I couldn't get an AWS quote for what it would cost to put it there on comparable services and terms; there was too much noise in the numbers and capabilities to know, but I found no scenario under which it would be less expensive and several under which it might be MUCH more. And yes, I did check pricing there, along with Azure.
