Fast and flexible computing

Managed services should deliver fast, reliable performance for end users. DigitalOcean is built with best-in-class Intel processors that run your managed service at blazing speeds. With DigitalOcean, you can operate your managed service directly on VMs or Kubernetes.

Droplets (IaaS)

Run and manage your app directly on our VMs, or as we call them, Droplets. Choose between Basic, General Purpose, CPU-Optimized, or Memory-Optimized VMs. Spin up Droplets with your choice of Linux OS in 55 seconds or less.

DigitalOcean Kubernetes (KaaS)

Spin up a managed Kubernetes cluster in minutes, and run your app as microservices using Docker containers. Scale up or down as needed. Pay only for your worker nodes, as the master is free.

Start fast with 1-Click App stacks

Manually installing and configuring your managed service’s dependencies can take hours or even days. With our Marketplace 1-Click Apps, you can easily deploy common frameworks, so you can get your managed service up and running faster than ever.
