DigitalOcean Launches Partner App Marketplace
March 11, 2019

DigitalOcean launched Marketplace — a new platform that connects developers with easy-to-use partner-built solutions to enable easier app development, deployment and scaling with DigitalOcean's signature 1-click simplicity.

DigitalOcean Marketplace is the company’s first partner-led offering, extending its platform and allowing third-party providers an easy way to build, market and sell their software stacks with DigitalOcean.

Marketplace features a focused ecosystem of partner-built 1-Click Apps — pre-configured software and infrastructure stacks running on DigitalOcean — that provide the services, components and tools necessary for modern app development. These frameworks streamline app setup by automating the process of finding, testing and provisioning all of the software dependencies involved with deploying an app. By eliminating the manual work typically involved, developers can deploy fully-tested app environments with the click of a button. Additionally, all partner 1-Click Apps are tested and verified for seamless compatibility, eliminating the need for lengthy checks, version controls and configuration.

"Our goal is to help next generation developers and small- and mid-sized businesses spend less time thinking about infrastructure, and more time creating modern apps — partners are critical to realizing this vision," said Mark Templeton, CEO of DigitalOcean. "As our 3.5-million-strong community looks for new ways to simplify app creation from start to finish, our Marketplace will serve as a hub to connect them with partners that deliver fully-integrated, ready-made apps and tools that can be launched in less than 60 seconds. Our initial offerings focus on the types of apps most used by our community of developers, businesses and teams."

Since introducing its own 1-Click Apps in 2012, DigitalOcean has seen widespread adoption, with a quarter of all customers currently using one or more solutions. Marketplace builds upon this success, recognizing the need for more ready-made offerings among developers and small- and mid-sized businesses. By extending its platform and incorporating partner-built solutions, DigitalOcean is helping to meet the growing demand for purpose-built apps by its community. Initial offerings focus on the most popular application categories among the DigitalOcean customer base; these include developer tools, frameworks, blogs and forums, databases, blockchain, analytics, monitoring and observability.

Early strategic partners include GitLab, InfluxData, Grafana, Plesk, cPanel, OpenFaaS, Hasura GraphQL, Fathom Analytics and more. New partners and app categories will be added on an ongoing basis.
