Are the ever-increasing cloud costs on AWS, GCP, and Azure severely impacting your bottom line? Reach out to our team of experts and we’ll show how you can significantly reduce your bill for the same consistent infrastructure experience.
Monthly caps and flat pricing mean your bill is never a surprise.
Collect metrics on visibility, monitor Droplet performance, and get alerts when problems arise in your infra—at no additional cost.
Easily help secure your infrastructure with free Cloud Firewalls and define what services are visible on your Droplets. Perfect for staging and production deployments.
Securely and efficiently collaborate on projects with unlimited users, get two-factor authentication, and have all of your projects on a single bill.
Backups are disk images of your Droplets created automatically once per week, priced at 20% of the cost of the Droplet.
Snapshots are on-demand disk images of your Droplets that you can keep indefinitely and use them to create new Droplets.
Attach secure and scalable SSD-based Block Storage to your Droplet when you need more storage space and not the additional processing power that a larger, more expensive Droplet might provide.
Store and deliver vast amounts of content with S3-compatible Spaces Object Storage with a built-in CDN to minimize page load times, improve performance, and reduce bandwidth and infrastructure costs.
Distribute incoming traffic across a group of Droplets and increase your application's availability with Load Balancers—a highly available, fully managed service.
Avoid single points of failure by assigning publicly-accessible static IP addresses to Droplets that allow you to redirect network traffic between any of your Droplets within the same datacenter.
When we tried Premium CPU-Optimized Droplets, we moved a workflow that was in AWS, and with the Premium CPU-Optimized Droplets our workloads got faster by several hours and we saved $2000 a month with DigitalOcean.
Managing Director, Validin
DigitalOcean was super easy to understand and use, and instead of having to focus on correctly configuring everything, we were able to spend our time on writing code.
Head of Product
One of the reasons we’ve been able to grow as quickly as we have is because of how scalable everything is and how easy it is to add new features on our DigitalOcean platform. We use every single one of your products now.
DigitalOcean Droplets are Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) that run on top of virtualized hardware. Each Droplet you create is a new server you can use, either standalone or as part of a larger, cloud-based infrastructure.
DigitalOcean provides a 99.99% uptime SLA for both Droplets and Volumes Block Storage.
You will never be billed more than the monthly cost of your Droplet. All Droplets are billed hourly up to a monthly cap of 672 hours (the number of hours in 4 weeks). If you use your server for fewer than 672 hours during the month, you will be billed for each hour that you used it. If you use your server for more than 672 hours that month, you will be billed at the monthly cost. For example, if you spin up a $10/mo Droplet and use it for 336 hours, then you would be charged $5 (going by the hourly rate). If you use that Droplet for 700 hours, then you would be charged $10 (capped at the monthly rate).
