Digital Ocean For Mobile Apps


We have been using for the last few years as a BaaS for our mobile app development… and as i am sure you already know, is closing down soon. We are now looking to migrate to a new service.

Are you aware of any Digital Ocean tools or services that facilitate mobile app development? Any information at all in terms of Digital Ocean of other recommended services would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks in advance.



Great, thank you for your help.

If you look on’s blog they have notes on how to migrate to a physical server (from their cloud service).

This is the open source project for the new server (that you can run on DO servers)
