Our suite of compute products lets you create the infrastructure you want, whether you want to build applications by managing your own infrastructure with Droplets, implement modern container-based methodology with Kubernetes, or use a fully-managed Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment with App Platform.

DigitalOcean Droplets are Linux-based virtual machines (VMs). Each Droplet you create is a new server you can use. Choose from a variety of Droplet plans to get right resources (like CPU, RAM, and storage) for your workload.
