DigitalOcean Droplets are Linux-based virtual machines (VMs) that run on top of virtualized hardware. Each Droplet you create is a new server you can use, either standalone or as part of a larger, cloud-based infrastructure.
We offer a variety of Linux and container distributions, and all Droplets integrate with other DigitalOcean products and features, like tags, reserved IPs, block storage volumes, cloud firewalls, DigitalOcean Load Balancers, and more.
