September was special for DigitalOcean as we welcomed Nimbella, a serverless platform provider, to our family. We’re excited about integrating Nimbella into our platform and offering application builders the choice and flexibility they need to achieve their goals.
While we released significant updates such as Trusted Sources in App Platform last month, in September we focused on infrastructure enhancements. Below are some of the key capabilities we released this month.
Floating IPs are now available for DigitalOcean’s custom images
DigitalOcean floating IPs are publicly-accessible static IP addresses that you can assign to Droplets and instantly remap between other Droplets in the same datacenter. This can help you implement a failover mechanism to build a high availability infrastructure. You can now assign floating IPs for DigitalOcean custom images.
Let’s Encrypt wildcard certificates support for Load Balancers and Spaces
DigitalOcean’s Let’s Encrypt certificates are fully managed and automatically renewed on your behalf every 60 days. We have now added the ability to create wildcard certificates using Let’s Encrypt to simplify the experience of certificate management. Creation of wildcard certificates on DigitalOcean managed domain will secure the domain’s apex and any subdomains chosen by the user.
DigitalOcean App Platform is now available in LON and TOR regions
We’re excited to announce that App Platform is now available in our LON and TOR datacenters. With this release, the service is now available in all regions.
We launched many preconfigured 1-Click Apps in the DigitalOcean Marketplace to help you save time and remove the hassle of provisioning servers.
Updates to DigitalOcean Terraform Provider
v2.12.0 - This release adds CORS support for apps on App Platform and the ability to create monitoring alerts.
We hope you’ll give these new products and updates a try. If you have an idea for improving our products or want to vote on other user ideas so they get prioritized, please submit your feedback. And if you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here.
Until next month,
Sr. Product Marketing Manager
