With the Digital Ocean API, users can access intuitive endpoints that enable the management of resources and Droplets within the service’s cloud.
Headquartered in New York City, Digital Ocean is a cloud infrastructure provider that operates data centers worldwide. Developers utilizing the platform can access cloud services capable of deploying and scaling applications meant to run on many computers simultaneously.
The company also runs Hacktoberfest in partnership with Twilio and GitHub. This celebration of open-source software runs the whole month of October annually.
Digital Ocean competes with Google Compute Engine and Amazon Web Services (AWS). The Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform is very popular with developers, especially those working with open-source software. When deploying an application, users choose the size of a ‘Droplet,’ which is the company’s name for a remote virtual machine (VM). Besides selecting the size of the cloud VM they wish, developers can pick the geographical region they want and the data center of their choosing, plus what type of system they want, either CentOS, CoreOS, Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, or Ubuntu.
Likewise, Digital Ocean offers pre-installed applications. Nine different droplet sizes are available, ranging from 512MB of RAM with one CPU and 20GB of solid-state drive (SSD) space to one that offers 64GB RAM, 20 CPUs, and 640GB SSD storage. Space management occurs through a control panel and the API. As a result, resources, scaling, rebuilding, backups, and more can all be accomplished with ease.
Any developer who deploys resources and applications of any kind on Digital Ocean’s IaaS can benefit from the Digital Ocean API’s access.
