Is it possible to use digital ocean for batch processing of large numbers of tasks, in a similar way to AWS Batch / Azure Batch?

If it’s not directly supported, which I’m pretty sure it’s not, are there any accepted / effective ways to achieve this roundaboutly?

Currently, we don’t have any services similar to AWS Batch / Azure Batch. However, you should be able to schedule a task using cron or use shell scripting to run a batch of tasks at once.
