Fully managed solution

  • Use a simple, intuitive, and visually rich experience to rapidly build, deploy, manage, and scale apps.
  • Secure apps automatically. We create, manage and renew your SSL certificates and also protect your apps from DDoS attacks. Securely connect your apps to DigitalOcean Managed Databases as trusted sources.
  • Focus on what matters the most: building awesome apps. Let us handle provisioning and managing infrastructure, operating systems, databases, application runtimes, and other dependencies.

Maximize developer productivity

  • Get out of the box support for popular languages and frameworks like Python, Node.js, Go, PHP, Ruby, Hugo and static sites. Have apps in other languages? Simply provide a container image and App Platform will do the rest. You can deploy container images from Docker Hub and DigitalOcean Container Registry.
  • Deploy code directly from your GitHub and GitLab repositories. Automatically re-deploy the app when you push updates to your source code.
  • Run code with little to no customization. App Platform uses open, cloud native standards and automatically analyzes your code, creates containers, and runs them on Kubernetes clusters.
  • Gain better visibility into your apps with alerts and monitoring

Scale apps, not costs

  • Keep costs low and easily optimize resources and costs as you scale apps. By running App Platform on DigitalOcean’s infrastructure, we make it simpler for you to control costs.
  • Scale horizontally or vertically to handle planned or unplanned traffic spikes.
  • Maximize availability with zero downtime deployments. Your apps remain available not only when you scale up or out, but also when you roll out new changes.
