As a service... It's not a service :)
DO provides hosting for your own setup, and - coincidentally - they have a one-click setup.
Beyond that, it's all yours and you can do what you want with it. I've seen in VPN discussions that you're only as private as whoever runs your VPN - well, in this case, that's you.

It doesn't naturally rotate ip addresses for you, but if you were in a situation where you needed to switch, it takes all of 30 seconds to move a droplet elsewhere (changing its ip in the process).

Yup. They have a fluid api and cli client, too.
