I suggest you ...

Allow Custom Images

Allow users to upload ISO's of Linux installations they would like to use. For instance, I was hoping to install Slackware 14; if users could upload their own ISOs you wouldn't have to keep adding distros as they wanted them.

        Do you guys have any news abouts this ?

      • James StanwayJames Stanway commented  · 

        Users should be able to mount their distort of choice and install it

      • davidakdavidak commented  · 

        this is really a basic feature everybody would be happy to have

      • AntonioAntonio commented  · 

        Elasichosts offers this bit.ly/1JXq3SH even on a free trial.

      • BjornBjorn commented  · 

        Still nothing, really weird since this is a great feature to implement.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        More than 4K votes and still nothing?!!!
        This is a vital feature and it should be there to help Sys-Admins in a variety of situations (i.e. Install custom OS, Load an OS iso for recovery and ...)

      • Răzvan-Sebastian BotezRăzvan-Sebastian Botez commented  · 

        Not sure what to think about DO if a feature that was requested more than three years ago and confirmed to be in beta testing has not yet been pushed in production.

        What's the holdup? Why aren't any updates on this?

      • etech3etech3 commented  · 

        You really need to allow Slackware, custom ISOs

      • SeidrSeidr commented  · 

        Heya - I saw back in 2012 there was mention of this feature being in beta. Was this worked on any further, by any chance? Installing from an ISO is the *only* thing missing from DO to meet my needs.

        Thanks!

        Signed up for an account with DO, found it didn't have this feature, and immediately moved to Vultr with higher spec hardware at a lower price. I would move back to DO (even at the higher prices) if this was implemented because I like their DC locations better.

        Pls i relly need it

        This is a backup vote for the event when OpenBSD droplet is not accepted.
        With Custom Images, OpenBSD could be deployable.
        pf of OpenBSD is good for firewall, traffic-shaping, load-balancing, VPN, encryption, etc.
        Custom Image will be less convenient than droplet but it is acceptable.
        Vultur also does not give OpenBSD image but allow custome install.

      • ChetanChetan commented  · 

        It will Help us to import Image to start a new Droplet with existing data and code structure, As sometimes we dont want to make changes to server which results in big cost for company.

        I would love to play around with slackware 14 on a digitalocean droplet. This would be a very nice feature.

      • AlexAlex commented  · 

        Please i really need this feature

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        What is going on with this?

      • Pierre DabrunstPierre Dabrunst commented  · 

        I want to see the function that I can upload my own OS. I am making my own OS and I would like to install it on my doplet. I would like to see that I can install my own custom OS by uploading it to my ISO files.

      • Jonathan ByersJonathan Byers commented  · 

        Vultr.com has custom ISO and Windows capabilities. This lets me run my custom windows application along side my Linux clusters and let's me use custom ISOs like Zen Load balancer.
