The way forward is Open

Open source software is freely available to use, lovingly made by people all over the world, and at the heart of DigitalOcean's business.

Digital Ocean loves Open Source

DigitalOcean: Powered by Open Source

In addition to open source powering many of our own libraries and frameworks, open source projects and the open source community embody values that we believe in and advocate for—innovation, collaboration, and optimism.
