  1. Keep Arch Linux on DigitalOcean

    Hi all,

    I really love Arch Linux so much, but DO is trying to move that out. I hope that you guys can try to vote for the fantastic distro to keep it on DO.

    The following is the letter that I just wrote to the support ticket.
    ----

    I'm very surprised about the maintainability of Arch Linux. Personally, I'm a heavy user of Arch, I do love the distro. Arch Linux is a contemporary minimalist Linux distribution. It provides a very clean, lightweight distribution of the Linux operating system.

    While I was trying to launch another Arch server on…

    • DataCenter in Chile

      It would be great to have a DC here in Chile. The economy and government is stable.

      Also, Google is already building a DC here! https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/quilicura/

      • Improve customer experience during DDOS attacks

        Currently if you get a DDOS attack your server loses all internet facing networking ability, effectively cutting off your access to the internet on your droplet. Other providers provide more direct protection rather than just shutting your net down. Such as OVH's technology and approach detailed here: http://www.ovh.com/us/anti-ddos/ I would prefer digital ocean over any other provider based on my experiences, but the DDOS issue is the last remaining concern. If other providers are providing protection to customers rather than just cutting their customers internet, then I believe with all the money digital ocean has they should be able to…

              • Provide the ability to turn backups on or off after a droplet has been created

                Currently if a droplet is created without automatic backups enabled, the option to backup that droplet becomes unavailable. This should be something we can turn on and off at any time.

                • Give users IPv6 /64 blocks when you roll out IPv6

                  As you guys are testing IPv6 in the Singapore region, I highly recommend you give users a /64 each when IPv6 rolls out. This is proper practice, and gives users more flexibility in terms of address selection.

                  • Make it a bit more clear that even powered off droplets still count towards running costs.

                    I understand the technical reasoning as to why you would charge for droplets that are turned off but I didn't know this without traversing 3 pages deep into the help section. I was going to call and complain that not only did I lose my $10 LAS credit but that I was charged $3. Granted, $3 isn't a lot and it clearly states in the FAQs that I would be charged but (knowing that know) I feel a little butt-hurt that I lost a good amount of "free" testing time.

                    • Paypal payments with user choosing any amount of credit

                      Sometimes when you want to put some credit via paypal and you want to put $15 for example, you need to do 2 transactions. When you are dealing with international payment, it can also be charged for the number of transactions you are doing... It is not much indeed, but what would be the problem of having the user type how much he/she wants?

                      • Introduce free but slow "deep suspend" that is nonetheless easy

                        Often, I don't want to have running costs for reserved resources; I use DigitalOcean for one-off jobs. It would be great to have a "deep suspend" which is really just a snapshot + saved settings, yet without the IP, memory, CPU, and fast disk space reservation.

                        This is really just a UI improvement over images.

                            • Offer different hardware configurations based on the use case (DB, Storage, Decrypt etc.)

                              This is a repost of a previous idea (granular, slider-based hardware selection) as suggested by Moisey:

                              http://digitalocean.uservoice.com/forums/136585-digitalocean/suggestions/5097062-replacing-all-droplet-types-by-custom-droplets

                              "..However, we do believe that there are different workloads that require different servers and hardware. For example caching services need a lot of RAM but not much else, DBs need very fast harddrives and CPU, and then there are cases when you just want a bunch of storage and not much else.

                              This is an area that we are exploring to see if we can begin provisioning different hardware types sometime in 2014 and testing to see if customers like the ability to…

                              • Reserve IP Addresses / Make sure we can keep an IP if we recreate a droplet.

                                When destroying a droplet there's a 99% chance that you will get your IP back. If someone creates a droplet while destroying/creating a new one and steals your IP, it's a pain, even if the chances are <1%.

                                This 1% is too much for some. An IP is an important number, your server might not be able to send emails if the last IP's user was sending spam through it.

                                Software licenses are also tied to IP sometimes.

                                When I want to rebuild a server (or resize: disk size) I want to make sure that I get my IP back.

                                  Edward, our new Director of Customer On Boarding, has been reaching out to a number of customers to see what we can do improve the service. The request to be able to reserve an IP address came up from many customers, and has also received tremendous support from the community with the number of votes that it received on UserVoice.

                                  As we’ve scaled out the engineering team we have a large number of projects that are currently in traction along with some that we’ve already launched like the new API v2, IPv6, and so forth, but given the huge amount of support for this request, we are going to try and slide this into the roadmap earlier at a higher priority.

                                  For that we’ll be doing some initial testing to see how we can work this into the existing product set, how much engineering time that will take, and see…

                                    • PTR entry for IPv6 addresses

                                      Reverse entries for IPv6 addresses, just like IPv4 addresses have.

                                      • Data Center in Latin America

                                        I suggest to create a new data center at any country in latin america, I could suggest Panamá is a good place to have a data center or Honduras.

                                        • Bitcoin Payment Method

                                          Bitcoin is a Peer to Peer digital currency with worldwide implications. Its value is changing rapidly just like oil did during its early days of adoption.

                                          That aside, it is a new technology and is beginning to be widely used. One of the largest internet company's in China started accepting them, WordPress accepts them and many more are starting to accept them every day.

                                          I don't want to see Digital Ocean lose out on this technology.

                                          I suggest you take a good hard look in the adoption of this new payment system.
