Managed Databases resources

Simple pricing & superior support

Powerful and scalable

Worry-free setup & maintenance

Launch a PostgreSQL cluster with just a few clicks and then access it via our simplified UI or an API. Never worry about maintenance operations or updates – we handle that for you.

Worry Free

Free daily backups

Your data is critical. That’s why we ensure it’s backed up automatically every day. Restore data to any point within the previous seven days.

Free Daily Backups

Automated failover

In the event of a failure, Managed Databases will automatically switch data handling to a standby node to minimize downtime.

Standby Nodes

End-to-end security

Databases run in your account’s private network, which isolates communication at the account or team level. Requests via the public internet can still reach your database, but only if you whitelist specific inbound sources. Data is also encrypted in transit and at rest.


Highly scalable

Scale up at anytime to support your business growth. Easily spin up read-only nodes to scale read operations.

Scalable Performance

Fast, reliable performance

Managed Databases run on enterprise-class hardware giving you lightning-fast performance. Run your clusters on Droplets (cloud VMs) with shared vCPUs or choose Droplets with 100% dedicated vCPUs for mission critical workloads.

DBaaS Email Support

Predictable pricing

Always know what you'll pay with monthly caps and flat pricing across all data centers. Spin up a cluster for just $15/ mo or a high-availability cluster with a standby node for $60/ mo.

Business Support

World-class support

Three levels of support services are designed to meet your needs whether you are a startup, small business, or anything in between.

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.
