The new offering takes the company’s managed services strategy to the next level as it streamlines cloud computing to empower developers as well as small and medium-sized enterprises to spend more time developing software with the potential to change the world.
Apurva Joshi, VP of Product, DigitalOcean said, “With millions of businesses started in the cloud each year, developers need a simple, fast and scalable way to ship the apps that power their ideas. He added, “With App Platform, we built upon DigitalOcean’s proven technology and signature simplicity to provide a fully managed experience that allows developers to stop worrying about infrastructure and get their apps to market faster. And, since it runs entirely on DigitalOcean, App Platform makes it easy for businesses to keep costs low and optimize their resources as they grow.”
As per official information by the company, the recently launched app platform comes with the potential to amplify productivity by allowing developers to deploy code directly from their GitHub repositories.

For startups and small to medium sized businesses with skills shortage, price, simplicity of experience and reliability are all key considerations, especially for those organizations that prefer a completely abstracted and automated infrastructure environment.”
