Compute

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.

  • You can now do the following on Kubernetes clusters:

    • Use surge upgrade when upgrading an existing cluster. Surge upgrade is enabled by default when you create a new cluster.

    • Move a Kubernetes cluster and its associated resources, such as Droplets, load balancers and block storage volumes, to a project using the DigitalOcean control panel or doctl command-line tool. You can also assign a project when you create a new cluster. If you do not specify a project, it gets assigned to the default project.

    • Delete resources, such as load balancers and block storage volumes, associated with a Kubernetes cluster using the DigitalOcean control panel, API or the doctl command-line tool.
