Simplifying Kubernetes Pricing

“The Kubernetes service from @digitalocean is looking to be one of the easiest and quickest I've used so far.”

Save hours managing your compute environment

Rapidly provision one to thousands of Droplets in seconds

Deploy your custom image, 1-Click App, or standard distribution

Skip the installation and configuration and get straight to deploying your code.

Worry Free

Global availability

Deploy your Droplets and get a reliable connection and flat pricing across 8 data center regions.

Free Daily Backups

Choose a type and size

Choose from Standard Plans that offer a mix of memory and shared vCPUs, or Performance Plans that provide dedicated hyper-threads from best-in-class Intel processors.

Scalable Performance

Monitoring

Collect metrics on visibility, monitor Droplet performance, and receive alerts when problems arise in your infrastructure — at no additional cost.

Cloud Firewalls

Easily secure your infrastructure and define what services are visible on your Droplets. For groups of Droplets, simply tag them and the appropriate rules are immediately applied. Cloud Firewalls are free and perfect for staging and production deployments.

Team Management

Enable unified collaboration to manage and scale your infrastructure and apps, with one invoice, and no shared credentials.

Features to accelerate releases

Full Kubernetes API

When you provision a DigitalOcean Kubernetes cluster, we spin up a kubernetes control plane and provide an endpoint to use with the kubectl CLI or any Kubernetes ecosystem tool.

Kubernetes in minutes

Choose the types of worker nodes you’d like, the data center where you’d like to run, and provision your own cluster in minutes. Download your kubeconfig file to start using through the kubectl command-line.

Managed Service

DigitalOcean continuously monitors your Kubernetes Control Plane to make sure you are always able to access and deploy to your cluster.

Open API

Seamlessly integrates with your existing tooling and workflows. The DigitalOcean API makes it easy to create, update and manage your cluster through our API.

Guided Configuration

We'll walk you through the steps to easily connect to your cluster, deploy an application, and add additional resources like storage and load balancers.

Certified Kubernetes

DigitalOcean is a gold sponsor of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF), of which Kubernetes is a Graduated Project. DigitalOcean Kubernetes is certified as part of the CNCF Certified Kubernetes Conformance Program.

SHARED CPU

Burstable performance from $5/mo

Standard

The most basic Droplet – a burstable portion of vCPU – along with a configurable amount of memory.

DESIGNED FOR

Simple or bursty applications such as low traffic web servers, blogs, discussion forums, CMS, small databases, dev/test servers, microservices, and repository hosting.

DEDICATED CPU

Consistent, fast performance from $40/mo

General Purpose

The most popular modern Droplet, with 100% dedicated vCPU, along with a balanced 4GB of memory for each vCPU.

DESIGNED FOR

Critical applications such as high-traffic web servers, e-commerce sites, medium-sized databases, and enterprise Software as a Service (SaaS).

CPU-Optimized

The CPU-centric Droplet, with 100% dedicated vCPU, along with a more modest 2GB of memory for each vCPU.

DESIGNED FOR

CPU-intensive applications like CI/CD, video encoding, machine learning, ad serving, batch processing, and active front-end web servers.

Memory-Optimized

The maximum memory Droplet, with 100% dedicated vCPU, along with a generous 8GB of memory for each vCPU..

DESIGNED FOR

RAM-intensive applications like high-performance databases, web scale in-memory caches, and real-time big data processing.

Deploy a Droplet using a distribution or 1-Click Apps

Industry-leading price-performance

Cloud Spectator, an independent benchmarking firm, found that DigitalOcean delivered the best CPU performance per dollar, when compared with AWS and Google. And thanks to DigitalOcean’s straightforward pricing, it’s easy to predict your monthly bill.

PRICE PERFORMANCE

Our tools make it simple to collaborate, secure, monitor, and backup your Droplets.

Backups

Affordable and easy-to-use automated backups built into the Droplet interface. Enabling this service on your Droplet can provide automatic, system-level backups at regular intervals, allowing you to easily revert or spin up new instances off of the created images. Pricing for backups is 20% of the cost of the virtual machine.

Snapshots

A snapshot could be taken prior to making any drastic changes to a server configuration, so that, should the changes be unsuccessful, you will have a version to revert back to. Pricing for snapshots is $0.05 per gigabyte per month.
