DigitalOcean’s 2019 Year in Review

Curated 2019 News from Digital Ocean

It’s been an exciting 2019 at DigitalOcean and we’d love to take the opportunity to share what we’ve been up to. With everyone that makes up our community in mind, we’ve worked hard over the last year to provide new features – and to launch new products that better serve each of you.

As always, we welcome any ideas and suggestions you have for our 2020 product roadmap. Our product team reviews these on a regular basis, and looks forward to your insights.


General Purpose Droplets with dedicated compute power >>
In April, we announced the general availability of General Purpose Droplets with dedicated compute power. These support scenarios requiring higher performance such as highly trafficked web and application servers, databases, ad servers, gaming servers, and more.

Memory-Optimized Droplets now generally available >>
Our Memory-Optimized Droplets support memory-intensive applications such as high-performance databases, web scale in-memory caches and indexes, real-time big data processing, and resource-intensive business apps.

Kubernetes & Managed Databases

Managed Kubernetes to build cloud-native applications using open source technologies >>
With our Kubernetes offering, we made it simple to build cloud-native applications using open source technologies — all while leaving the complexity and management of Kubernetes to us. Simply define the size and location of your worker nodes and let us provision, manage, and optimize the services needed to run your cluster.

Managed Databases for MySQL, Redis, and PostgreSQL >>
Many of our customers have expressed appreciation for the launch of Managed Databases for PostgreSQL, as it allowed them to focus on building apps and leave the laborious database configuration, tuning, and management to us. Since then, we added support for MySQL and Redis as well. We now provide a fully managed experience for three of the most popular open source databases in the world.


Introducing Marketplace, our platform for preconfigured 1-Click Apps >>
We launched Marketplace in March to make it easy for developers to get started in the cloud. The initial launch included a set of handpicked 1-Click Apps such as WordPress, Grafana, OpenFaaS, and more. Today, we have more than 100 1-Click Apps at your disposal.

Deploy pre-configured Kubernetes solutions as 1-Click Apps from the Marketplace >>
We expanded our Marketplace to include 1-Click Apps not only based on Droplets, but also on Kubernetes clusters managed by our DigitalOcean Kubernetes service. We also added support for cluster autoscaling, tokenized authentication, and minor version upgrades in the managed service.


Solutions Partner Program enables companies to partner with DigitalOcean >>
Our Solutions Partner Program enables companies to partner with us by providing cloud-based solutions to their customers. This partnership increases the number of ways developers and customers can engage with DO.

Hacktoberfest celebration of open source technologies concluded with 150,000 participating repositories >>
For the sixth straight year, our monthlong Hacktoberfest brought people across the world together to support open source technologies. While our mission stays the same, the number of events and contributions continues to top the charts year after year. This year, we ended the month of October with 673 events, 62,000 challenge completions, 482,000 pull requests opened, and 150,000 participating repositories across 150 countries. If you haven’t participated in the past, we hope you’ll join us next year!
