Few weeks back before Christmas 2014, I was having a chat with few startups at YorkbutterFactory and some others I met via StartupVictoria about Platformer. Our discussion extended to what public cloud platforms we support and what we our plans in the future etc.
Strangely few of them asked me "Have you build a Marketplace for DigitalOcean?". That was a bit of a surprise as we never thought about it before.
Yes we do have a Marketplace, and yes applications, services and projects from our Marketplace can be deployed and managed under various public cloud providers including DigitalOcean. However we never thought of promoting it as a Marketplace only for DigitalOcean.
In continuing my discussion with some of the developers, I found out that they are using it as a Marketplace catalog to deploy apps and services on DigitalOcean. That is great, I am very happy at least we were able to help few of the DigitalOcean fans.
I am happy to hear from more of you and see how we may be able to help achieve your final goals, even if that means we need to further improve Platformer capabilities (adding more apps, services to the catalog, more DevOps capabilities etc) to support use of IaaS platform from DigitalOcean.
Let us know how we can help?
Wishing you a very Happy New Year !!!
