Not only is DigitalOcean easy to operate, it’s built with best-in-class Intel processors that run your app at blazing speeds. Cloud Spectator, a renowned benchmarking firm, found that DigitalOcean delivers superior price-performance compared to Amazon and Google. With DigitalOcean, you can choose whether to run your app directly on VMs or Kubernetes.
Run and manage your app directly on our VMs, or as we call them, Droplets. Choose between Standard, General Purpose, CPU-Optimized, or Memory-Optimized VMs. Spin up Droplets with your choice of Linux OS in 55 seconds or less.
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 worker nodes, as the master is free.
Manually installing and configuring your app’s dependencies can take hours or even days. With Marketplace 1-Click Apps, you can easily deploy frameworks for popular programming languages, so you can get your app up and running quickly.
In less than a minute, spin up a cloud server with Apache, MySQL, and PHP installed.
The LEMP stack is a group of open source software to get web servers up and running.
Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
Your app might require terabytes or even petabytes of storage for user data, files, or content. We provide durable, secure Object and Block Storage as a pay-for-use service.
Store vast amounts of data in five global data centers with S3-compatible tools. Cut retrieval times by up to 70% with a built-in CDN that caches data at 25+ points of presence.
All Droplets feature local SSD for super fast operations. With Volumes, you can attach extra highly available and resizable SSD storage as needed.
The days of licensing expensive databases and running them on-premises are long gone. With DigitalOcean, you can easily use any one of our open source Managed Databases. Create a cluster in just a few minutes, and only pay for actual resource usage.
"Since we started using DigitalOcean Kubernetes, we need not spend nearly as much time on IT administration, and even developers can control our infrastructure."
"The control panel allows us to resize our cluster very quickly and painlessly, and abstracting away not only the management but the configuration of Kubernetes to DigitalOcean has saved us countless man-hours."
DigitalOcean’s community tutorials and product docs help you quickly get started. Here’s a small sample of the resources available.
