Our friends at DigitalOcean are reimagining PaaS to make it simpler for everyone to build, deploy, and scale apps. It’s every developer’s dream to simply write code, click a button, and then automatically deploy and run your code at scale for millions or even billions of users. Today, that dream is a reality thanks to DigitalOcean App Platform.

There’s an entire category of products commonly known as Platform as a Service (PaaS) that endeavors to make this possible. But, so far, these services have largely fallen short of what developers need. Many of our customers have come to DigitalOcean after their PaaS became too expensive, or after hitting various limitations.
But the dream of PaaS lives on. Even though Kubernetes has emerged as a middle ground between PaaS’s convenience and the control of IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), it is still somewhat complicated.
It’s with all of this context in mind that we’re excited to introduce our take on a modern PaaS today: DigitalOcean App Platform.
