DigitalOcean Kubernetes (CaaS)

Spin up a managed Kubernetes cluster in minutes, and run your app as microservices using Docker containers. Scale up or down as needed. Pay only for your Droplet worker nodes, as the master is free.

Start fast with 1-Click App stacks

Manually installing and configuring your app’s dependencies can take hours or even days. With our Marketplace 1-Click Apps, you can easily deploy frameworks for popular programming languages, so you can get your app up and running quickly.
