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, integrate natively with DigitalOcean Load Balancers and volumes, and can be managed programmatically using the API and command line. For critical workloads, add the high-availability control plane to increase uptime with 99.95% SLA.
You can set up a variety of tools to make your DigitalOcean Kubernetes (DOKS) cluster operationally ready. Your operationally-ready DOKS cluster can have a set up as shown below, which includes:
Setting up an ingress controller using Ambassador or NGINX
Installing apps such as Prometheus to monitor the cluster
Installing apps such as Loki to aggregate logs
Configuring backups and restoration using Velero or Trilio
