DigitalOcean’s Product Expansion

Recently, DigitalOcean announced its new feature, Deploy to DigitalOcean App Platfom, that allows developers to deploy their code to production quickly. The offering increases DigitalOcean’s managed services strategy, simplifying cloud computing and giving developers and businesses the ability to spend more time to focus on creating software. The new lightweight platform-as-a-service (PaaS) environment is made available on top of Kubernetes and automates the deployment of open source code on the DigitalOcean cloud service from a GitHub repository.

Other capabilities added to App Platform include the ability to transfer existing root domains to DigitalOcean, support for wildcard domains, the ability to configure a static document to optimize performance of Single Page Applications (SPAs), and a Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) mechanism that uses additional HTTP headers to tell a browser to let a web application running at one domain have permission to access selected resources from a server at a different domain. These new features will allow development teams to run a process either before or after the deployment of an application.
