I want to purchase cloud servers from DigitalOcean, however I know very little about managing and maintaining servers (I just develop the websites). I know what I need without knowing how to do it.
So my first alternative is to pay a company to look after my servers for me so they must understand my business.
My second alternative is to find an individual and pay him/her.
I have done a few Google searches but I cannot find companies that do this, I guess I'm searching for the wrong things.
Do you know of any companies that do this or recommend any? I know that Rackspace do "Managed Operations" but at this point it is far too expensive.
Certain things I require the businesses or individual to be able to do is:
  • Load balancing
  • Adding or Increasing servers without downtime
What other Google searches do you think I should try?

That is indeed what your looking for. It's not cheap, no.

If you can find a freelance devops guy you could go down that route (hint hint). We have a freelance board, but I'm not sure where else you might search or how much activity you might get.
