More than just virtual machines. Droplets are a scalable compute platform with add-on storage, security, and monitoring capabilities to easily run production applications.
Balanced virtual machines with a healthy amount of memory tuned to host and scale applications like blogs, web applications, testing/staging environments, in-memory caching and databases.
Compute optimized virtual machines with dedicated hyper-threads from best-in-class Intel CPUs for CPU Intensive applications like CI/CD, video encoding, machine learning, ad serving, batch processing and active front-end web servers.
* a Virtual Central Processing Unit (vCPU), also known as a virtual processor, is a physical CPU that is assigned to a virtual machine. Having more than one vCPU allocated to your Droplet means that the processes are spread out between the various logical cores (to a certain point).
Skip the installation and configuration and get straight to deploying your code. Droplets offers many different distributions as well as various one-click install apps.
Because Droplets are resizable, SSD-based virtual machines, you can deploy what resources you need now and upgrade at any time down the road.
You can deploy your Droplets around the world in any of their 8 datacenter regions with a reliable connection.
Both Nuagerie and Droplets are committed to providing a 99.99% uptime SLA. We'll personally fix any problems at any time - that's a promise.
With straightforward and affordable pricing you never have to worry about your monthly bill. Pay for what you use, and scale up on demand.
Enables Droplets to "talk" within the same datacenter. Traffic sent between Droplets across the private network will not count toward your bandwidth costs.
Collect metrics on visibility, monitor Droplet performance, and receive alerts when problems arise in your infrastructure — at no additional cost.
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.
Manage and scale your infrastructure and apps, with one invoice, and no shared credentials. Create teams with user authentication and designate billing permissions to take control of your costs.
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.
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.
Add more storage space to your Droplet or mix-and-match compute and storage to suit your application's needs.
Securely store and deliver any amount of data. Instantaneously create a cost-effective, scalable storage space using Droplets' drag-and-drop UI or API.
Load Balancers are a highly available, fully-managed service that works right out of the box and can be deployed as fast as a Droplet. Load Balancers distribute incoming traffic across your infrastructure to increase your application's availability.
Single points of failure can be the downfall of any application. With Floating IPs, customers can associate an IP address with a different Droplet, with minimal downtime. This makes it possible to set up a standby Droplet, ready to receive your production traffic at a moment's notice.
