Last month, DigitalOcean introduced new load balancers for higher-scale business applications and Managed Databases for Redis 6 to their cloud computing platform.
- Load Balancers With More Scalable Plans
The new Medium Load Balancer is a great fit for transaction-driven sites or services with moderate traffic, and costs just $30 per month. The Large plan is perfect for higher-traffic sites or API endpoints, and costs $60 per month. The existing $10 plan is now classified as Small.
- Managed Databases For Redis 6
They recently upgraded Managed Databases from Redis 5 to Redis 6. The latest version provides a lot of new functionality related to security, performance, and ease of use. If you spin up a cluster for Managed Redis, you will now have access to Redis 6 and you can no longer create Redis 5 clusters.
- “Deploy to DigitalOcean” Button
If you refer someone to DigitalOcean via the Deploy to DigitalOcean button using a valid referral code, they’ll receive credits on their account as soon as they add a valid payment method. Additionally, you will also receive credit for the referral.
DigitalOcean also launched quite a few new preconfigured 1-Click Apps in the marketplace to help you remove the hassle of provisioning servers. This includes Cloud Manager, Gigantum Client, and Saltcorn.
PS: Similar to GitHub, you can also now deploy code from your GitLab repositories. Simply point the DigitalOcean App Platform to your repo and follow a few simple steps to launch your app.
