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, use a fully-managed Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment with App Platform, or go serverless with DigitalOcean Functions.

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.
DigitalOcean Kubernetes (DOKS) is a managed Kubernetes service that lets you deploy Kubernetes clusters without the complexities of handling the control plane and containerized infrastructure. Clusters are compatible with standard Kubernetes toolchains and integrate natively with DigitalOcean Load Balancers and volumes.
App Platform is a platform as a service (PaaS) offering that lets you publish code directly to DigitalOcean servers without worrying about the underlying infrastructure, runtimes, or dependencies.
DigitalOcean Functions is a function as a service (FaaS) offering that lets you run your local serverless code in the cloud using Node.js, Python, Go, or PHP without managing any backend infrastructure.
Cloudways is a managed cloud hosting platform where teams can build, deploy, and scale web applications.
Paperspace is a cloud-based machine learning platform that offers GPU-powered virtual machines and a Kubernetes-based container service.

Latest Updates

8 April 2024

  • Tokens returned by the /kubeconfig and /credentials endpoints now have custom scopes to provide read-only access to Kubernetes resources. Within DOKS clusters, operations to access Kubernetes objects are still available based on team role (owner, biller, or member) as before.

19 March 2024

  • Autoscaling for App Platform is now in Early Availability. Autoscaling allows your app to automatically add or remove containers based on the workload across its containers.

  • We have added synchronous validation of LoadBalancer service annotations. If you provide invalid values, DOKS returns an error, thus preventing misconfiguration of your load balancer.
