DigitalOcean Announces New Tools For High Availability And Collaboration

October 20th, 2015 – New York, NY – DigitalOcean, the simple cloud infrastructure provider built for developers, announced today new tools for development teams building large-scale applications, Floating IPs and Team Account Management.

Since the company was founded in 2012, the combination of powerful infrastructure, fast provisioning, and heavy emphasis on user experience has attracted over 700,000 developers that have deployed over 8 million cloud servers. With the release of Floating IPs, DigitalOcean continues to address a broad range of use cases, making it easier for software developers to deploy highly available applications.

"With the addition of Floating IPs, developers can quickly and easily associate an IP address with a different Droplet (cloud server) via our control panel or API," says Brooke McKim, Director of Product at DigitalOcean. "This eliminates single points of failure and empowers developers to build production applications at any scale."

The company also released Team Accounts this past June, in order to better support teams of developers working together to power established applications. Customers can invite multiple users to access and manage the account's resources, such as Droplets, without having to share their own login credentials or billing information.

"Simplicity is difficult to achieve," says Moisey Uretsky, Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer at DigitalOcean. "There's a lot of benefit in taking the time to get it right; to making complex technology easy to use. We wanted this networking solution to have the same qualities developers love about The Droplet: simplicity, elegance, and incredible user experience."
