Deploy docker containers on Digital Ocean

Hi there,

I have a general question as I’m unsure where to start.
We currently build and deploy docker containers with gitlab, to Amazon ECS and run them there.

I now want to switch deployment to Digital Ocean. We don’t have a large cluster and need auto-scaling. It’s only around 8 containers with individual applications+databases running on two fixed hosts.
Thus something like kubernetes is, right now, probably overkill.
However, I still want to remain flexible in case we want to add something like that later on.

Therefore my question is:
Can anyone suggest a way to do these deployments automatically via gitlab? A tutorial or similar would be a good way to start and see how people do it, as Amazon is quite different I guess.

Thanks a lot,

Can anyone help me?
